Optimum Handling Solutions have supplied scissor lifts with an automatic load height detection system using an electric eye to scan the load height in view of automatically maintaining the optimum working height for the operator of the scissor lifts
Logic Lift® scissor lifts were used to overcome a materials handling issue at a packaging & paper supplier to overcome the issue of bending, reaching & twisting at the end of conveyor lines. Static spring type pal-evators were being used but in some areas of the plant where forklifts were excluded because the area had high personnel traffic, another option was needed.
Optimum Handling Solutions suggested that low profile scissor lifts could be used to negate the need for forklifts as the low profile scissor lift can be unloaded by a pallet truck. Adding the Logic Lift® sensor was an obvious advantage in view of increasing production at the same time as reducing fatigue by lessening the effort required by the operator.
The Logic Lift photo eye is adjusted to a comfortable working height for each individual operator and then automatically controls the level of the scissor lift table so that the pallet layer being stacked is kept constant. The operator does not have to press any control buttons once he has started stacking the pallet.
The logic lift photo eye sensor also works in the opposite direction when pallets are being unstacked. The scissor lift table is automatically elevated as each layer is taken off.
The Optimum Handling Solutions logic lift system can be used in almost any situation where scissor lift tables are required. A great innovation from Optimum Handling Solutions.
