What are Scissor Lifts ?

A scissor lift is defined as “a surface raised or lowered by the closing or opening of crossed supports pivoted like the two halves of a pair of scissors.”

Scissor lifts are popularly used in a lot of industries to reach high areas of work and also to lift or lower load. It has arms that open and close like scissors to raise and lower the height of the platform that is fixed on the top of the unit. This helps in adjusting the height of the platform according to one’s requirement.

Scissor lift is of three types, namely:

1) Hydraulic Scissor Lift

2) Mechanical Scissor Lift

3) Pneumatic Scissor Lift

The hydraulically powered units are the most popularly used machineries that can withstand huge amount of weight. These use pressurized hydraulic oil that is pumped into the machinery to make it function; that is to extend and contract its arms.These can reach up to great heights. However, care should be taken that such units have railings on the work platform to prevent workers from falling.

A hydraulic scissor lift can be easily fitted with a work platform of the user’s choice. These units can also be fitted with wheels to make moving them from one place to another easier.

The scissor lift platform is lifted upwards from the ground as soon as the arms of the Hydraulic Scissor Lifts are extended. They can reach upto a height of 20 – 60 feet, and can carry a load of upto 10,000 pounds.

These machines help in reducing the workload of the workers and can be operated just by clicking a button or pressing the pump with the foot.


Proper care should be taken while functioning the machinery. The point to be remembered always is that the machine is powered by oil. This oil becomes more fluid in summers and so the unit runs a bit faster in this season.

Proper working condidtions should also be maintained for ideal working environment for the machines and the workers. Hence knowledge and experience of handling such equipments and machinery is important.

Traction lifts and their movement mechanism

Essem Engineers, a premium traction lifts manufacturer, uses the finest of raw materials to make sure that the lifts it manufactures are durable and have a longer productive life.

 Traction lifts help us in portability and in conveniently accessing higher level buildings without the stress of climbing an endless flight of stairs.

All traction lifts use a specially intended hoist mechanism which allows the lift to safely move along the shaft or hoist.

The hoist mechanism selected for a specific elevator depends on various factors, including the number of floors a building has and the comfort of movement. Traction lifts are one of the popular lifts that are used across industries.

There are various traction lifts manufacturers in the market. Essem Engineers is a leading name amongst them. It is also known as a leading hydraulic scissor lifts manufacturer.

Hydraulic Scissor Lift Table, Hydraulic Elevator, Hydraulic Work Platform, Zero Level Lift, Tandem Lift, Hydraulic Car Lift, Hydraulic Stacker Lift, Hydraulic Goods Lifts, Cantilever Lifts and Event Lifts are various hydraulic scissor lifts that Essem manufactures.

 To elaborate more on traction lifts, it is a hydraulic scissor lift that uses a movement mechanism facilitated by steel ropes attached to a heavy duty pulley. The movement of the pulley results in the pulling of ropes which causes the lift car in turn to move either up or down.


There are two types of traction elevators; they are geared traction elevators and gearless traction elevators. With the geared traction lift, a motor is linked to the pulley that allows hoisting. With the gearless system, no gear is present in the mechanism. Normally, gearless traction lift is used for buildings having more than 20 floors and they function with a speed of 500 feet/minute. The geared traction elevator is used for buildings that are normally around 300 feet high. They come with the same speed as that of the gearless traction systems.

 The salient features of Essem Engineer’s traction lifts are that it speeds up to almost 1.0 m/s, it has a capacity range of 380 kg to 2000kg and it is available in a wide variety of finishes.

Therefore, order the traction lift you require. You just to need to get in touch with us at info@essemengineers.com or you can reach us at our contact numbers mentioned on our website. Just a phone call and we will be at your service.
