The first low profile scissor lift format is the TCB model. This has a traditionally square shaped platform. When used for pallet handling, a low ramp is put on the ground to access the low profile scissor lift table platform with a pallet jack. This model is used for non-EUR pallet formats. But, it is also often used when a pit is not an option and a low closed height for the scissor lift table is a requirement.
The second low profile scissor lift format is the TUB model, where the platform has a U-shape where a pallet can be loaded straight onto the table in closed height by driving a pallet jack with the pallet in to the middle of the “U” and dropping off the pallet on the table. This model is almost always used for EUR pallets. The EUR pallet is loaded straight onto the lifting table and it is much easier to load horizontally than to drive up and down a ramp. If there are loose goods or smooth items, such as glazed cartons for example, on the pallet, the U-shaped table is also very advantageous as the pallet is not tilted. This is the TUB tables’ biggest advantage over TCB tables with a ramp.
Previously the lifting height of these tables have in some instances been a challenge, which is why Translyft developed an “X-range” for the low profile scissor lift models – X for extra travel.
The newly developed TUB 1000 X and TCB 1000 X, sets a new standard for low profile scissor lift tables. The X tables’ travel has been increased by 180 mm to 900 mm. This means the that the maximum height above the floor for “X-range” reaches right up to 980 mm. This is a significant advantage whenever equipment and items are produced or fitted, whilst it ensures that the items are raised to a good working height so that the operator stands correctly throughout the work process. It is, of course, particularly important to raise an item if it is to be processed on the underside.
