No worker wants to do a tedious or laborious job on an unstable or insufficient work surface. A wrong work surface could slow down productivity and even cause harm to the worker.
Professionals working in laboratories, workshops and other industrial or production environments know the importance of having a work surface that is comfortable, safe and designed specifically for the task to be performed.
The correct workstation can be an invaluable resource.
They can be made of durable materials ranging from steel, aluminum, wood and industrial grade plastics. Any workbench worth providing will provide some space, shelves or expandability to create a versatile and efficient workspace.
Have the right tool for the job
Having materials at your fingertips is always an important thing to look for in a workbench. When the workflow is organized and closed, it allows the operator to be more productive, while avoiding pain and muscle fatigue.
Quality workbenches have features such as bins, shelves, cabinets, drawers and other accessories to allow easy access to parts or tools. Some also have the advantage of having adjustable legs, this allows workers or jobs of different heights to rise or fall in a comfortable working position, and this can help the muscles and the back. These are ideal for jobs that require sitting or standing for long periods of time
Workbenches are available in a variety of formats and should be selected based on the type of work for which they are used.
In a laboratory, in the kitchen or at a food preparation point
Workbench and work tables made of stainless steel are the perfect choice
For applications in laboratories or food service areas, easy-to-clean stainless steel workbenches provide longer life and cleanliness. The stainless steel shelves with thick channel supports offer unbeatable stability. Some stainless steel counters are also equipped with splash guards to contain splashes or sketches. The adjustable lower shelves offer plenty of storage space and adjustable legs meet the height of multiple users
On the assembly line or on the packing area
If you are in a work environment that handles large packages or heavy-duty assembly operations, workbenches and long work tables are ideal. Extra long benches can help reduce congestion on work surfaces for team work. The height-adjustable legs offer a comfortable working position according to the task or the user. Worktops can be combined for an even larger work surface. Some assembly and packaging workbenches are equipped with integrated accessories to simplify production, such as shelves, drawer rails, roll holders, lighting and multiple sockets. They are equipped with all the necessary amenities to increase the efficiency of your packaging.
Mobile workstation and mobile security cabinets.
Easily carry your workbench where you need it. Mobile workstations make ideal portable work surfaces for maximum flexibility in the work area (repairs, maintenance or assembly). A good option is a mobile repair cart; these trolleys are a mobile work station with heavy-duty drawers and wheels. Mobile work benches are designed for various applications anywhere. Mobile carts are also another great option; Durable utility carts with racks for tool boxes / small parts
Many of the workbenches are ideal in The Warehouse
Heavy duty steel workbenches are perfect for warehouses, shipping areas, or any place where a heavy-duty workstation is needed!
If height or bending is a problem, it is advisable to consider a bench overturning or an inclination table of the efficiency master. Tilt tables have the ability to tilt pallets, crates, boxes or baskets at 45 ° to facilitate loading or unloading of the container. The tables have the whole structure in steel welded for years of life. The unique design minimizes grip points to meet OSHA requirements. Many lifting floors are used as work surfaces, as well as lifting a load
Create your “Distinct” workbench.
Customizing or manufacturing your workbench is a great way to ensure that important materials are always at hand. The decision on a specific workbench material can help to ensure that activities with specific provisions, such as those related to chemicals, foods, electronics or clothing, are performed on a suitable work surface. Some are more customizable than others.
It is not possible to exceed the configurable packaging workstations for versatility
We have found that with different workbench configurations to choose from, some companies can customize a workbench to meet the needs of any work environment.
• These counters house plastic tops with a high pressure laminate, ideal for everyday and multi-purpose use.
• They can also be used with ESD worktops for protection against static electricity when working with sensitive IT objects.
• For an unbeatable chemical resistance in work environments such as laboratories, choose the top in phenolic resin.
• Durable stainless steel shelves have a core of 1-1 / 2 “thick wood particles with a phenolic support wrapped with 304 grade stainless steel, 16 gauge for strength.
