Scissor Lift Table
Model: VAS6131
Superseded To:


With introduction of new power unit generation, Volkswagen AG also sets new standards in engine repair. The engines and gearbox have to be removed downwards as one unit. The power unit assembly has a weight of approx. 800kg, which means that the standard engine and gearbox jack cannot be used. This equipment represents a completely new removal and installation philosophy which, no doubt, will also be applied for future series production vehicles. Use of the scissor-type assembly platform VAS6131 facilitates the necessary removal philosophy in the automotive luxury class, whereby the power unit is isolated from the bottom. When a vehicle is raised and due to stress-related ageing of the engine and gearbox mountings, there is often a slightly warped or distorted effect on the vehicle and/or power unit. In order that all mounting points can still be reached, the assembly platform can be tilted three-dimensionally by a maximum of 100mm. For universal use of the scissor-type assembly platform, there is an engine plate and gearbox plate with locking template. To adapte the equipment to the relevant power unit assembly, the respective supports are bolted to the plates. The gearbox plate can be moved back and forth allowing the engine and gearbox to be separated on the assembly platform without the need for great physical effort.
