Herkules Equipment Corp., Walled Lake, Mich., has designed and manufactured an electric-hydraulic scissor lift table, with a 10,000 pound capacity, for General Electric’s Oil and Gas Division. The heavy duty lift system is designed for improving ergonomic conditions in a demanding environment. The lift is used for positioning oil pipes into a welding cell. The electric-hydraulic scissor lift table has a lowered height of 16 inches with 30 inches of travel, a 48 x 96-inch platform, and high strength, thick, tubular steel scissors.
The simple push button up/down control pedestal also contains the external power unit, enabling the lift table with large, heavy duty cylinders, to have a lower closed height. A check valve is included within the high-pressure gear pump head which allows the operator to stop and hold the lift system at any position during normal operation. The motor is 230VAC, 3HP, 60 Hz, 3 phase, NEMA-4 rating.
A unidirectional flow control is included as a secondary safety measure in case a hydraulic line is accidentally cut.
EnKon Systems is the brand name for Herkules Equipment Corporation’s electric, hydraulic and air powered scissor lift table systems.
