Lift tables are the backbone of the warehouse. On the surface, the purpose of a lift table is simple – raising and lowering heavy or unstable goods in the warehouse – but the long-term benefits of implementing lift tables reach far beyond ease of use. Lift tables can also be used for:
- Loading transport vehicles
- Loading conveyor belt systems or machine feeders
- Moving unstable pallets
With today’s warehouses busier than ever and often stacked floor-to-ceiling with goods, lift tables can boost efficiency, improve productivity, and even increase morale among warehouse employees.
Lift Tables & Efficiency
Lift tables are an incredible efficiency and versatile piece of equipment. They can be used in a variety of scenarios and environments to accomplish many objectives, from a simple lift to transport. Lift tables are available in many configurations, allowing for a custom fit for all warehouse employees. With electric and manual options available and options that support weights from 1,000lbs up to 8,000 lbs, it’s never been easier to find a lift table ideal for your application.
Lift Tables & Productivity
When it comes to warehouse work, faster is always better. Downtime and work stoppages can spell disaster for a business’ longevity and profitability. Speed may be desirable, but sloppiness can lead to inefficient work and even injuries, resulting in – you guessed it – work stoppages and less productivity. Lift tables help counteract this dramatically by providing the tools to move heavy pallets and boxes quickly and with ease.
Lift Tables & Morale
There’s nothing better for employee morale than ensuring they have the right tools to do a job correctly and to the best of their ability. As our warehouses become fuller and busier, lift tables will continue to become a necessary part of our tool kit and arsenal. Beyond being a helpful tool to expedite the moving of pallets and boxes, lift tables also prevent injuries by discouraging employees to attempt to carrying heavy or unstable goods on their own and increase comfort.
Once you’re ready to purchase, there are many factors to consider when selecting a lift table including your environment, the weight of the goods being moved, and how the lift table will need to operate.
