Hydraulic lift is a type of machine that uses a hydraulic cylinder to lift and lower objects by applying relatively small force compared to the weight of the object to be lifted.
It’s working is based on Pascal’s Law
Hydraulic lift is a type of machine that uses
a hydraulic cylinder to lift and lower objects by
applying relatively small force compared to the
weight of the object to be lifted.
It’s working is based on Pascal’s Law.
To fabricate a hydraulic lift with the help of
hydraulic jack at commercially low cost.
To raise or lower platforms to work on heavy
components such as engines.
To place the work material on ergonomically
comfortable access points.
Hollow metal rods of (1X1) inches cross-
section is selected.
They are cut into required lengths and
welded together by arc welding to form
bottom and top metal frames and also the
Then the metal plates of required length are
welded to the top and bottom metal frames.
The rolling wheels are welded at the end of
the cross-links by some supports.
The cross-links are then connected to the
metal frames by means of Half Threaded
Bolt and Nuts.
Then the hydraulic jack is placed at the
bottom metal frame by connecting its stroke
to the cross-link.
The hydraulic jack is manually pumped to
raise the hydraulic lift. Ensure that the
pressure relief valve is closed tightly.
The pressure relief valve at the bottom of the
hydraulic jack is opened gradually to lower
Hydraulic table lifts are so simple to
operate and move and they eliminate
repetitive strain injury (RSI)
When not in use and fully retracted
hydraulic table lift take up little space in a
warehouse or office.
Heavy weights of 100 kg can be lifted easily to a
height of 2 feet by this hydraulic lift.
In workshops heavy components such as
engines can be lifted to required height so that
we can work on it conveniently.
It can be used as bike lift by altering its size.
The height of the lift can be increased by
increasing the stroke length (or) by adding
additional zig-zag links.
The hydraulic lift can be designed for high
load by using a suitable high capacity
Thus a Hydraulic lift to raise 100 kg of
weight up to a height of 2 feet is designed and
fabricated at a commercially low cost.
It is recommended for the engineering
industry and for commercial production.
