Pallet Lift Description
This pallet lift is a double pillar machine with a Safe Working Load of 500 Kgs and a lift height of 3270mm. The lifting platform will be big enough to allow a pallet box (1400 x 1400 x 1400mm) to be loaded using a hand pallet truck. At the upper level, there was a landing plate to allow easy unloading. The pallet lift was constructed from mild steel with epoxy coated finish and was bolted to the floor. Lifting with this pallet lift is accomplished via chains driven by a motor gearbox mounted at the top of the one column with a crossover shaft to the other column.
Safety Guard to PD 5304 Safety of Machinery
The safety guard is constructed from 40 x 40 x 3mm mild steel box section and 3mm wire, 40mm aperture weld mesh meet the requirements of PD 5304 Safety of Machinery. It enclosed the pallet lift to a height of 5570mm with a hinged door at each level through which the pallets can be loaded and unloaded. Each door is electrically interlocked to prevent the pallet lift being operated with a door open and in addition, the doors are mechanically locked closed whilst the pallet lift is running. Each door may only be opened when the lifting carriage is at the appropriate level.
