These skillets are high-cycle electro-mechanical scissor lifts and were incorporated into more than 200 platforms at a major automobile manufacturer in the US.
Workers could ride alongside the vehicles on the platforms, and the worker can adjust the height of the vehicle to suit their ergonomic position.
An operator controlled foot switch activates the lift which then employs an electro-mechanical drive in combination with cam-style scissor geometry. This is successful in achieving constant-speed lifting with very low power requirements.
