The BEHLTT series of hydraulic lift and tilting tables offer an ergonomic handling aid for workers in industrial facilities. The self-contained power unit that operates the cylinders is operated by push button control for simple use.
The unit features either a 12-inch recessed or projected lip attached to the deck along with a restraining chain to help prevent the load from moving during tilting. With weight lifting capacities ranging between 1,000 and 4,000 lbs. and deck widths of 36 or 48 inches, these units are capable of handling a wide variety of materials and loads. Among the standard safety features are electric toe guards to protect personnel from pinch points during lowering.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
