The incoming spread of the contemporary home office has dragged along with it the need for an electric table. This has put the table as one of the most sought-after home-office furniture. More so, electric lifting tables improve the performance of the job done in your comfort zone.


All things being the equal in an application like an adjustable table a rectangular tube lifting column provides the best overall stability. This is because the ratio of the long-side to short-side of the rectangle can be tuned to optimize both inherent instabilities as opposed to treating them equally.


The productivity of a user can be greatly affected by how quickly their work surface can be raised or lowered. Lifting columns can offer speeds from around 10 mm/second up to 250 mm/second making them ideal for use in a medical equipment applications setting such as MRI machines, X-ray machines and operating tables where an optimal speed is desired. The same is true in an industrial setting where a lifting column used for an adjustable height desk or workbench.


Although with the dramatically reduced and ever-diminishing weight of equipment and computers on an average desk, the load requirement of a lifting platform used in lifting an adjustable desk are not entirely as demanding as say for example an patient examination table, it is important that the load-bearing is sufficient that the speed of the lifting platform and the cost is low enough to merit such investment.

Stroke Length:

The primary reason for using a lifting platform versus a simple electrical linear actuator is that a lifting platform is essentially multiple staged actuators combined in a singular telescopic tube. This is done to increase the length to which a lifting platform can lift a desk. The stroke length provides the ability to raise the desk to a standing height. The longer the stroke length the longer the range between which the desired platform can be adjusted to a required height.


A lifting column in a standing desk has a relatively low repeatability requirement unlike lifting column in more industrial environments where a single operation is repeatedly more frequently.
