Ergonomics is the science of movement. When we apply ergonomics to material handling applications, we improve the quality of workplace environment, and we create new systems that improve process flow, reduce the liabilities associated with industrial accidents, and increase profit margins by increasing overall productivity.
When an employee is working at a work bench, the ability to quickly and efficiently access an item from any angle allows the worker to perform a task much more quickly and much more safely. Powered turntables are easy to install on normal workbenches. An employee can turn the item to face him or her without having to move around the work bench to access the different sides of the item.
For turning smaller items, such as engine parts, 8-inch powered turntables are sometimes used. Larger objects, such as engine blocks and irregularly sized objects are manipulated on 24 inch units. With a powered turntable, your crew will be much more easily able to access different sides of the item without difficulty. They can also see both the object and the progress of their own work from different points of view. With this improved accuracy and efficiency, more work gets done in less time.
Easy Rack sells many different types of powered turntables that suit the many different applications that warehouses, distribution centers, and factories incorporate into their process flow. Our specialists will help you choose the right model for your application based upon the size, shape, and other attributes of the unit. The most basic units are simple bench top turntables that you sit on top of the workbench. They can support up to 5,000 pounds, and they allow employees to rotate the item being worked on with little effort. Rotational movement is consistently maintained by high quality bearings.
Easy Rack also provides height adjustable powered turntables in varying heights measuring up to 36 inches. Being able to adjust the height of the unit allows for the maximum ergonomic range of movements. Workers can not only gain full access to every side of the materials with which they are working, but they can set the height to a level that minimizes arm and back movements and that best allows them to see what they are doing.
Being able to adapt the work to the human body in this manner constitutes the true nature and value of ergonomics in the material handling world.
If your company consistently works with very heavy objects, and you are concerned about the potential fatigue that your employees may experience while working with these objects, powered turntables will bring your crew both piece of mind and greater efficiency and safety. Manufactured at the highest levels of quality and engineered with the latest technologies that allow workers to easily elevate objects of up to 750 pounds in weight above the workbench table top. The powered rotation makes it easier for laborers to work smart, not hard, and get the job done more effectively without fatigue or the risk of serious injury.
