Creform Corporation has designed and built a mobile workstation that is used in electro-mechanical subassembly work for a Southeast U.S. manufacturer of powered window treatments.
The workstation has a plastic work surface across the front which creates a smooth and clean area for parts assembly. Above and behind the work surface are angled shelves for component storage and presentation that allows for first-in, first-out (FIFO) parts handling.
Above the work surface is a 4 ft. fluorescent light, as well as a tool balancer that rolls freely from side to side. The tool balancer counterbalances the weight of tools, makes them nearly weightless, keeps them readily at hand and reduces associate fatigue.
Below the work surface and centered within the mobile workstation is a pull-out drawer to hold those parts and tools that are infrequently used. On the right side below the work surface is an empty container return so the workstation can be serviced from the rear. The empty container-return features a skatewheel conveyor for consistent container flow. And in the back is a power strip to distribute electricity to the workstation.
The workstation shown has overall dimensions of 70" W x 83" H x 48" D. It has a load capacity of 600 lb.
Adding to the uniqueness of the workstation is that structure-to-structure connectors are included so that multiple workstations can be joined to create a linear, L-shaped or U-shaped work cell.
