The selection of a table lift depends greatly on how it will be used. Prior to inquiring regarding its purchase, it must be decided where it will be used and its purpose. These factors determine the company from which the table will be bought since each manufacturer specializes in certain types of tables.

What is a Hydraulic Table Lift?

Every hydraulic lift table has set basic features, which include the number of hydraulic cylinders, platform, supports, motor, and base. Each of these components work in unison to lift and lower loads. Most hydraulic table lifts are made of some form of steel for endurance and stability.

The differentiation between hydraulic table lifts begins with the platform, which can be made of welded steel, have conveyor rollers, or be perforated. Most tables have a flat metal surface of welded steel with curved, smooth, and rounded edges. Forms that are perforated or have conveyor rollers are specialty designs.

The number of supports on the table is determined by the type of work the table will perform. Tables that are required to lift heavy loads have several thick sturdy supports that can range in number from two up to eight or ten. The number of supports is restricted by the size of the platform.

Another variation in table lifts is the type of base. For heavy duty work such as welding, engine repair, and metal work, the base will have four rigid steel supports that are tightly welded together and to the supports. Other types of lift tables have wheels and can function like a forklift.

The main part of a hydraulic table is its motor and hydraulic cylinders. Tables can have one or several hydraulic cylinders depending on the design and type of work. They are attached to the supports for raising and lowering the table. Motors can be under the platform by the cylinders, attached to the side, or a power pack. The size and type of motor is designed to fit the table’s application.

How a Hydraulic Table Lift Works –

When the motor of the table is activated, it sends a signal to the hydraulic cylinders to force oil into the cylinder to move the ram to lift the table. As the ram pushes forward, the table slowly rises and stops at the required height. How quickly the table rises depends on its load capacity, which can be a hundred pounds or several hundred pounds. Once the load is at the correct height, the rams hold secure to ensure the table does not move.

To lower the table, the motor forces the oil out of the cylinders into the reservoir and the table lowers as the rams retract. This process happens very slowly for the safety of the workers and the load.
