PORTLAND, Maine—Southworth Products Corp. has developed low profile lift tables designed with a lower height and focus on ergonomics to increase productivity.
LiftMat is ideally suited for palletizing, Southworth said. As boxes are added or removed, the platform is raised or lowered to the most comfortable height with a powered foot switch, or a hand-held push-button remote. The need for bending and stretching is eliminated, reducing worker fatigue and minimizing the risk of injuries.
The firm said some units can be equipped with an optional turntable, which sits essentially flush to the platform and allows users to spin the load so they can remain in one position throughout the entire loading and unloading process. A rotational lock prevents the turntable from spinning when not use.
LiftMat's capacity is 2,200 pounds with a raised height of 31.5-inches. A full-perimeter toe guard stops downward travel if the lift comes in contact with any obstruction, and an optional ramp allows workers to load and unload the platform with a hand pallet jack.
