SERAPID Heavy Duty Lifting Columns for High Cycle Automotive Scissor Lift Table

SERAPID, Inc recently provided two high cycle, heavy duty automotive BIW scissor lift tables for a material handling company, who integrated them into a larger system for a major automotive company.

The BIW scissor lift tables provided by SERAPID cycle once every 50 seconds, or 29 times per hour for a total of 250,000 cycles per year at a speed of 40 feet per minute. The tables are equipped with SERAPID HD (heavy duty) Lift columns. These HD Lifts are specifically designed for high operating cycles (more than 10 cycles an hour).

The tables lift and lower an approximately 1100 pound automotive shell 31 inches over the 50-second cycle.

SERAPID specializes in horizontal and vertical motion through the use of our Rigid Chain Technology. The Rigid Chain is a telescopic mechanical actuator that is flexible in one direction and rigid like a steel beam in the other.
