Abstract

Outriggers are used to provide support to the Scissor Lifts when its platform is raised, during loaded condition. When Lift has reached its maximum height and if it is loaded, it may tend to topple or over-turn due to Bending Effect which is usually produced due to the change in the overall centre of gravity of the vehicle. To prevent this phenomena, outriggers are provided which reduce the overall toppling effect on the vehicle by providing necessary counter reaction forces. Up till now these outriggers were clamped to the ground surface manually, which resulted in wastage of valuable operational or equipment setting time. Hence, we have designed an automatic outrigger mechanism which works on hydraulic system and takes very less time for its deployment as compared to manual outrigger. This is a part of our BE project which includes design and modification of self-propelled scissor lifts at Air India. This type of design is yet to be explored and commercialized.
