Southworth Products Company Profile

Elevating worker platforms can be positioned at several heights.

Elevating worker platforms can be positioned at several heights.

Custom configured elevating worker platforms can maintain large, oddly shaped or tall structures. Generally built on either one or more scissor lift bases, the highly safe, secure platforms can be positioned at various heights, from a few inches to several feet—whichever position ensures users will have the best possible access to workpieces.

Also suitable for item picking several levels of a horizontal carousel, the platforms provide straightforward adjustment in regards to height, and users only need a pushbutton control.

Users can access several levels on workpieces and carousels. To also enable access to several sides of workpieces, the platforms, which are stationary or traversing, can be built in L- or U-shaped configurations.

Company Product Information

Having built a reputation as the industry authority in the supply of ergonomic lift tables and tilters that bring work to the worker, Southworth Products Corp announces the availability of worker platforms that bring the worker to the work.

For assembly or maintenance operations where large structures, such as aircraft or heavy equipment, must be accessed at elevated or varying heights, Southworth now offers custom-configured lifts that can be designed into most production lines. Offering more flexibility and safety than scaffolding or ladders, these worker platforms are also appropriate for stock picking from higher shelves, such as the vertically stacked compartments of storage carousels.

With the industry’s largest, most experienced engineering staff, Southworth designs stable scissor lifts in stationary or movable configurations and in a multitude of platform sizes and lifting ranges, working with the customer to accommodate budgetary limitations as well as unique, application-specific requirements.

Options include custom controls; soft start/stop; indexed lifting and lowering; slide-out sections that increase platform size when necessary; fold-down safety gates and handrails; custom deck treatments (non-skid, anti-static, etc.); and bellows skirting that keeps dust, debris, and moisture out of the lift mechanism.
