Workstations, Work Benches & Mobile Carts

Custom solutions with custom specifications.

Work stations that put everything within the operator's reach increase efficiency, and can reduce injuries.

By consulting with your team and applying 5S principles to the design Richter can help you design the right work station or work bench or mobile cart for your application.

Design Considerations

The packing area is a common bottleneck especially in distribution operations. When workers spend more time actually packing, and less time walking, bending, searching, and reaching, efficiency increases while injuries decrease.

Identify the bottlenecks and fix them

The packing area is a common bottleneck especially in distribution operations. When workers spend more time actually packing, and less time walking, bending, searching, and reaching, efficiency increases while injuries decrease.

Some things to consider when choosing or designing a custom packing or work stations include:

The user's point of view - the packing area is too often treated as an afterthought. The truth is that the Packer is a key member of the order fulfillment team, and his perspective on how the work area and process are designed, are critical success factors.

Maximize production speed & efficiency

Configure an efficient packaging station efficiency is increased by integrating the packing station into the company's operational goals, order fulfillment and material handling systems.

Ergonomic Design - Accessibility to the required tools, materials and supplies need to be considered in the workstation design, and considering the flow of the work will increase efficiency for the user. If there is not enough storage area at the workstation it could impact speed but making the table larger is not necessarily the answer as it could increase clutter.

Also consider adding matting and/or a sit-stool to minimize fatigue and facilitate better performance.

Adaptability - Richter uses modular aluminum framing for workstations to ensure they are easily re-configurable and adaptable to future requirements.
