Not everyone knows how to design a suitable cargo lift platform. Therefore, in this article, we use concise language to tell you how to customize the elevator suitable for the customer’s site. As a project, there must be a overall plan to arrange the lifts. The main contents of the full text are as follows.
To confirm the goods scissor lift table capacity and table size.
- What are the goods that need to be lifted
According to our experience, the main purpose of cargo lifts is to lift pallets, boxes, bags, etc. that carry goods. Customers need to know the package size, weight, and number of packages of the goods they want to lift. According to these factors, plan how many lifts you need, what is the capacity of each lift, and what table size you probably need.
- What space is there to install the lift?
Generally speaking, there are two situations. The first is that the equipment needs to be installed in a shaft, so that only the size of the shaft needs to be measured. The second case is that the site is not restricted. We can design the installation and placement method according to the required table size.
To confirm the scissor lift platform lifting height
- Is it possible to build a pit on site?
As cargo scissor lifts have self height around 150mm-1000mm, it’s better to make a pit to place the lift. Otherwise the pallets are not easy to go onto the top of table. When dig a pit, Himor will provide pit foundation drawing before you do it. In case you are not available to dig the pits, we will suggest to use low-profile scissor lift table for goods lifting.
- What is the specific lift height
After confirmed the pit issue, then we can make clear what is the platform lifting height. It is from ground to last stop floor ground. Once we have determined the lifting height, the only allowed adjustment range after the equipment is installed is about 5cm. So it is very important to determine the exact lift height.

- Site dimensions and data you got from above steps.
- Your requirements and uncertainties about the installation.
