Safetech offers its expertise in designing and manufacturing solutions for difficult lifting problems and has completed many projects across a broad spectrum of Australian industry.
One such project was at a meat packing plant which cuts and packs meat for delivery to supermarkets.
Specifically, the operation required a unit to lift pallets of goods from the ground floor to the 1st floor. The plant had no elevator, yet loads of up to 2 tonne needed to be moved between floors.
The ASD2-3500 Scissor Lift was chosen as an efficient, cost effective solution.
The Safetech ASD2-3500 double scissor hydraulic lift table offers 3,500mm of vertical travel and features a 3,250mm x 1,700mm platform.
The platform has a 1,800mm high mesh fences on three of its sides and guard locked boom gates on its loading side. Also included was a durable galvanised plate fixed to surface and loading edge of platform.
How the system works for the meat packing plant:
- Two pallets are loaded onto the platform by a forklift at ground level.
- The platform is raised to first floor via a new opening in upper floor.
- An enclosed shaft was installed as well as guard locked gates at each level.
- At upper level the pallets are removed by hand pallet truck.
In addition, the installation procedure was fairly straight forward. All controls, guard locked gates and limits were provided.
