Quality material handling equipment is vital to creating a safe and efficient working space in a warehouse, loading dock or retail store setting. Material handling equipment allows for the safe and efficient transportation, movement storage and protection of products during the manufacturing and distribution process.
Material handling equipment consists of four major types. Transport equipment is used to move goods and products from loading to storage or from storage to loading. Positioning equipment is used to move and position goods and products in a specific area of storage or production. Unit load equipment is used to organize and arrange products so that they can be easily moved by transport equipment. And storage equipment is employed to safely and efficiently store product while maximizing the use of storage space.
Scissor lifts are hydraulic powered lifting platforms that can raise and lower heavy loads or workers. They get their name from the telltale scissor design of the lift supports, which unfold as the lift is raised and fold back up when lowered. This telescopic yet stable design allows the lift platform to be raised directly above the base. Positioning the weight above the base in this way provides platform stability that is unmatched in other aerial working platforms.
