Edmolift works in close liaison with automators to provide scissor lift tables suited to the duty cycle and level of automation and loading required.

The company explains: “Our scissor lifts can be used with all types and all speeds of conveyor including very heavy-duty requirements.

“The new HDL2000, extreme heavy-duty scissor lift has been designed specifically for automation and system integration and is a good example of our understanding and commitment to this industry sector. This is the world’s first Cat 5 standard hydraulic scissor lift and is intended to continuous and intensive applications.”

From simple load positioning to a fully automated heavy-duty line fed PLC controlled integrated system, Edmolift’s team of experts can assist and guide.
