Optimum Handling Solutions recently supplied five double scissor lift tables to a fruit packing operation for stacking high pallets. Finished pallet heights at the fruit packing operation exceeded two metres.
With the installation of the automatic double scissor lift tables from Optimum Handling Solutions, the operators now work on an elevated walkway, which allows access around three sides of each scissor lift table.
The double scissor lifts elevate the empty pallet up to a level that is comfortable for the operators to start stacking each layer.
As the automatic photo eye level controller senses that a layer of cartons is completed, the scissor lift is lowered for the next layer to be stacked.
The scissor lift continues to lower as each layer is stacked until it is down below the elevated walkway, enabling the operators to stack the top layers of the pallet, still working below shoulder level.
The double scissor lift tables allow a two-metre high pallet to be stacked without any stretching and bending or risk of back and shoulder strain for workers.
