Optimum Handling Solutions supplied a new materials handling solution to a pharmaceutical manufacturer for application in the dispatch load out section within an intrinsically safe area of their operation.
The newly released Pal-Air range of pneumatic scissor lifts was ideal for the application as it utilised a pneumatic airbag to lift or lower pallets to assist in the manual loading or unloading of products.
As the load weight increases the Pal-Air gradually lowers to maintain an ideal working height for the worker, substantially reducing the possibility of injuries that may be sustained through bending or stretching.
The load capacity of Pal-Air pneumatic scissor lifts is infinitely variable (500kg – 1500kg) and can be adjusted in seconds. These scissor lifts are additionally fitted with a pressure gauge that indicates the current load capacity to the operator.
Pal-Air pneumatic scissor lifts are ideally suited for applications in hazardous environments of intrinsically safe areas where load capacity requirements are varied.
