SCISSOR LIFT DESIGN

SCISSOR LIFT DESIGN

(OP)
I am looking for some information on a scissor lift with a hydraulic cylinder and design reference book.

Thanks

RE: SCISSOR LIFT DESIGN

I do not know of a reference but I have worked with a couple and could answer specific questions.

Regards.

RE: SCISSOR LIFT DESIGN

Yun,

Contact Handling Specialty, Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. They build scissors lifts and will perform special analysis if needed. Most manufacturers of these lifts need to make many many copies of a single design to break even so they are not likely to do specific design work - once they get it right they "stack 'em deep and sell 'em cheap!"

The basic sizing requirements of these lifts are not too hard to analyze - it just takes time. Friction can significantly complicate analysis, especially as multiple stages are used.
