Ergonomic Work & Powered Lift Tables

What is Ergonomics anyway?
Ergonomics is the study of motion. When applied to material handling applications, ergonomics worktables improve the quality of the workplace environment. It creates new systems, and improved process flows, reduces the liabilities associated with industrial accidents, and increase profits by bringing general productivity to a higher level.

What are the benefits of ergonomic powered turntables?
When a crew member is working at a work bench, the ability to quickly access an item from any angle helps the worker get a task done more quickly and much more safely. With a powered carousel turntable, an employee can turn the item towards him without having to move around the work bench.

When working on smaller items, such as engine parts, 8-inch units are sometimes used. Larger items like engine blocks and oddly shaped objects are better manipulated on 24 inch units. A worker can more easily access different sides of such an item with a powered turntable. A staff member can also see both the object and the progress of their own work from different vantage points. With this improved accuracy and efficiency, more work gets completed in less time.

How many types of powered turntables does Easy Rack sell?

Our most basic electric lift tables are simple bench top turntables that sit on top of the workbench. They will support up to 5,000 pounds, and they enable employees to rotate the item being worked on with little effort. Rotational is maintained by high quality bearings.

Can you adjust the height of an item with any of these units?
With adjustable powered turntables, you can. We sell units in varying heights measuring up to 36 inches. The ability to adjust the height of the unit allows for a maximum range of ergonomic movements. Workers will not only gain full access to every side of the materials, but they will be able to set the height to a level that minimizes arm and back movements and gives them maximum visibility of the item being processed. Adapt the work to the human body in this fashion is ergonomics is really all about.
