An Ohio company has a application that is causing wasted time and injury to their workers trying to complete routine maintenance on their furnaces. They currently have a lift table from ATI, but find that with some modifications their application would be more ergonomically correct and safer for the people involved.
They are removing recuperators from their furnaces. These pieces weigh around 200 pounds. Having to bend over the opening to remove these items and carrying them down a ladder to attach to their current lift table for cleaning is putting strain on workers backs and opening them up for further injury. Plus, they are using 3 or 4 people to do this cleaning job.
ATI and their engineers designed a mobile lift table with a telescopic platform to allow for a one person operation. Not only is this a safer option, but they can now better utilize their manpower in other areas. The lift table has a lowered height of 48” for any normal person to have easy access to the recuperator during the cleaning process. The lift table will raise 36” and telescope 30” into the furnace for easy removal. They then can reverse the process to put the piece back into the furnace. All this saves them time, money, injury claims, and efficiency.
ATI’s lift tables are highly versatile and ideal for a wide range of operations like lifting, feeding, accumulating, aligning, and many other production, assembly operations, and maintenance applications. Lift tables ease work and increase worker productivity. ATI’s lift tables range from 500 pounds to in excess of 50,000 pounds and a raised height up to 74 inches.
