L-Shaped Workcell for Flexible Assembly
This L-shaped workcell was developed for a manufacturer of electronic components. The configuration supports one-piece flow. The workstation can be run with one person or two if more production is needed.
Parts replenishment can be performed on the back side of the structure, preventing interruptions to assemblers. The workstation features a variation of Creform’s skate wheel conveyors. Above the work surface are two levels of supply lanes that allow flow of small- and medium-sized bins. The upper shelf has a slight angle to return empty boxes. The lower section of the workstation also has standard plastic-wheel conveyors for larger totes to flow underneath the surface.
The work surface is made of durable HDPE plastic. At the top of the structure, a horizontal pipe provide a location for hanging tools and a work light.
Measuring 39 inches wide, 59 inches long and 86 inches tall, the workstation can be used for complex assemblies with many parts or mixed-model production for simpler assemblies. Heavy-duty leveling feet adjust to the floor surface. It is built with static-dissipative, plastic-coated, 28-millimeter steel pipe clamped together with nickel-plated metal joints. Accessories include overhead light, computer screen, shelves, additional flow lanes, drawers, information sheet holders, label holders, tool storage, and hooks to hang tools and supplies.

Workbenches are available with three options for adjusting height: hand crank, electric motor, or pin in hole. Height can be adjusted over a 12-inch range, from 30 to 42 inches.
Workbenches can be converted to complete workstations simply by adding upright frame and accessories. This modular approach provides the flexibility to meet changing job requirements efficiently and economically. Workbenches can be configured for light duty, heavy duty or specialized functions, such as testing or shipping. Specialized features, such as tilt tops and oversized work surfaces, can be combined with standard components, such as air manifolds or swing arms, in designs that will optimize worker comfort and productivity.
Work surfaces can be laminate, maple or steel. Work surfaces come in a range of sizes, from 30 by 60 inches to 36 by 96 inches. The all-steel, fully welded construction requires little or no maintenance in even the toughest environments. Our long-lasting, powder-coat finishes are scratch-resistant and never flake. Workbenches are shipped fully assembled and skidded ready for use within minutes of delivery.
