What is a platform lift?

The automation of a platform lift refers to an L shape platform that carries its passenger to ascend or descend. It is usually generated by screw and nut system. There are 3 main components that makes up a screw and nut lift. They are namely: the screw, guide rail and the nut.


Screw and nut drive lifts are incredibly simple. The platform is attached to the drive nut. When a control button is pressed in the lift, the motor turns the drive nut in the corresponding direction through a guide rail. When the motor turns the drive nut one way, the lift car goes up. When the motor turns the nut the other way, it goes down.
