Glossary

Aggregate set-up

Indicates whether the hydraulic unit is installed underneath the platform (internal) or whether it is arranged separately, near to the lifting table (external).

Aggregates

There are internal and external aggregates. External aggregates enable the lifting table to be more even. The aggregate consists of the motor, the hydraulic pumps, the tank and the valve block.

Axial forces

Forces acting in the direction of an axis.

Access ramp

See ramp.

Acceptance

In accordance with Section 7 of the Use of Work Equipment Regulations, the acceptance must be carried out in Austria by a sworn civil engineer. 

Ambient temperature

In hydraulic systems, the ambient temperature is important to the design of the lifting table. Extreme ambient temperature values must be detected. Too high or too low temperatures require special measures, such as oil cooling or oil heating.
