Lift Tilt Turn | Lift Products Inc.

Lift Products Inc is a manufacturer of ergonomic industrial equipment with an emphasis towards lift tables, tilt tables, upenders and electric platform trucks. Our corporate offices are based in Waukesha, WI while our factory operates in Waupun, WI. We are a customer driven company consistently looking at new ways to reach out to and support our dealer network and OEM manufacturers. Our driving principle is “Innovation In Ergonomics” whereby we strive to make the workplace safer and more efficient by removing potentials for injury and bottlenecks in processes.

Please look at some examples of Lift Products’s Lift, Tilt, and Turn Systems:

Standard Lift Table

Stationary Electric / Hydraulic Lift Tables are the backbone of many material handling applications. These types of lifts are used in both manual scenarios, to place products at an ergonomic height and improve efficiency of operators, as well as automated systems such as logistic conveying solutions. The majority of material handling applications require a capacity of 6,000 lbs or less. As such, the construction and design of these lifts are targeted to fulfill that need. Standard lifts typically have a lowered height of around 8″ and are commonly loaded by forklift, walk behind stacker, conveyor or crane.

Rotating Lift Table

Rotating lift tables are primarily used as work positioners in applications where the operator requires access to multiple sides of the load. This allows the operator to work more efficiently by removing the need for the operator to reach across or walk around the load as well as reducing the potential for repetitive motion injury associated with such reaching motions. Rotating lifts are ideal for assembly and welding applications where the operator requires access to numerous tools that may be tethered to a power supply. Additional benefits include minimizing the amount of space required for the work cell and reducing potential tripping hazards.

Tilt Tables

Industrial tilt tables and upenders, also known as flippers, are used to tilt a wide range of load types from 1 to 90 degrees. A common application of tilt tables is parts sorting where a container of parts is tilted toward the operator in order to reduce potentially harmful stretching motions. Combined with a lift table, a lift and tilt table can place loads at specific heights and angles to accommodate differences in operator height.

Work Positioners

Adjustable work positioners reduce strain and overexertion by positioning the work load at the height preferred by the user. They are highly mobile with all swivel casters allowing users to move their work with them around their work cell. Studies have recently shown that prolonged sitting can be detrimental to worker health. A work positioner can act as a welcome break by allowing users to perform work in a standing position.


Lift Tilt Turn | Southworth

Southworth Products Corp is the world’s largest manufacturer of ergonomic materials handling equipment for vertical lifting and work positioning, designed to improve worker productivity while reducing the potential for worker injuries. Whether you’re lifting and positioning work, handling pallets, working with parts in containers or transporting loads, Southworth has a lift table, pallet positioner, container tilter, portable lift table or stacker to make the job faster, safer, and, easier.

Please look at some examples of Southworth’s Lift, Tilt, and Turn Systems:

Lift Tables

Southworth is the world’s leading supplier of hydraulic scissor lift tables. We have the broadest product line, largest inventory of stock models, the most flexible range of modifications and most experienced designers. This site contains detailed information and specifications for all of our lift tables and lift table accessories. Our well known Backsaverâ„¢ series of hydraulic lift tables are available in over 1,000,000 configurations so they are suitable for a wide variety of applications.

Backsaver’s Portable Lift

Backsaver Lite Portable Lift Tables have four easy rolling casters for unmatched maneuverability. These internal DC powered lifts with integral chargers features push button controls to quickly and gently raise and lower loads. They include many of the same features as our stationary lifts.

  • Low pressure hydraulics
  • Fast raising and lowering
  • Fully adjustable down speed
  • Heavy-duty torque tubes to minimize deflection
  • Lubricated for life pins, rollers and bushings

Pallet Handling Equipment / Pallet Levelers

These are the products that revolutionized manual pallet loading and unloading in North America. PalletPal Level Loaders / Manual Palletizers are simple devices that keep loads at an ideal height for building or breaking down pallet loads. The original PalletPal Level Loader spring palletizer was introduced by Southworth in 1988. Since then the line manual palletizing equipment has grown to include a wide variety of products including Airbag Levelers, Operator Controlled Levelers, Pallet Truck Accessible Levelers, and more, all designed to make pallet handling faster, safer and easier.

Container Tilts

Accessing parts in containers is one of the most significant productivity thieves in any manufacturing or assembly operation. Southworth container tilters improve productivity and safety by positioning baskets so that parts are easily accessible without bending, stretching, or reaching. Southworth offers more models and configurations of container tilters than any other manufacturer.
