Creform Corp. offers two new material handling and logistics structures that provide versatility, ergonomic benefits, and flexibility. The structures are designed to safeguard static-sensitive electronics during assembly and transport. The new concepts include a mobile workstation and, as a complement to the station, an ergonomic flow rack that stores and presents parts and components to technicians at the workstation. Both units are constructed using Creform's ESD static dissipative components consisting of conductive plastic-coated steel pipe, nickel-plated metal joints along with conductive hardware accessories, a metallic work surface, and ESD casters to customize the rack and work area to fit application requirements.
The workstation unit includes an overhead structure suitable for mounting work lights or for suspending hand tools and operator assists. A shelf is also integrated into this upper structure to keep supplies close at hand while providing storage and display of documentation, work instructions, and routing directives.
Creform equipped the workstation with an ergonomic and self-contained hydraulic-assisted positioning system that permits users to easily raise or lower the upper section of the workstation, including the work surface, upper shelf, and lighting. With just the turning of a hand crank, this adjustable feature allows associates to set work heights to a comfortable level while maintaining relative positioning of components and tools to the work surface.
Further customization to fit particular job needs may include the addition of clipon bins that provide added part storage or the integration of additional shelves or compartments.
The flow rack structure is also assembled using conductive plastic-coated steel pipe with nickel-plated joints. Although this rack can perform in stand-alone situations, Creform designers developed this unit to flow parts into the back of the workstation.
