Plastic Lift Tray Features Reduced Weight

Zachary Turke

This plastic lift tray from Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. offers a 39% weight reduction from some steel and aluminum units.

Weighing only 14 lb, a one-piece plastic lift tray with molded-in inserts from Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. (Saddle Brook, NJ; www.modroto.com) replaces steel and aluminum units. Offering a 39% weight reduction from some previous metal designs, the plastic tray serves as the top section of a hydraulic lift, creating a stable platform for installing MRI machines, heart monitors, laboratory apparatus, and other sensitive medical equipment. The unit accommodates loads up to 500 lb and is designed to be visually appealing.

Measuring 2 x 3 ft, the tray is rotationally molded of polyethylene to ensure durability and wear resistance. This one-step foaming process simultaneously blends the resin with foam pellets and blowing agents to build in rigidity and stiffness during the standard molding cycle. Because it eliminates the secondary injection of urethane, it also reduces environmental concerns and allows a lower per-unit cost.
