Hydraulic, Mechanical, and Pneumatic Actuation.
Autoquip offers 3 types of actuation to operate the movement of our lift equipment: Hydraulic, Mechanical, and Pneumatic (Air). The proper lift actuation depends on the type of application and environment in which the lift will be operating. This determines whether exact positioning is an important feature or is used in an environmentally sensitive facility.
Hydraulic actuation works by creating pressurized hydraulic oil in the cylinders that work to raise and lower the lift.
Autoquip offers several options for mechanical actuation to our scissor lift and Freight Lift VRC designs.
Air bag actuated scissor lifts are designed to use compressed air to operate the lift.
