An extraction and separation technology manufacturer that produces analysis devices is looking for a number of assembly lines to equip a new production hall. Each line is to have ten workstations each, on which the operators are to assemble and test the analysis units. The workstations are to be connected by means of a conveying path. In order to support lean production and reduce the burden on employees, it is important that the workstations are designed to be as ergonomic as possible. Since the products to be assembled are very sensitive to ESD (electrostatic discharge), the workstations must also feature ESD protection.
To create several lean assembly lines, ten identical assembly and testing workstations were constructed using Series 40 profiles with electric height adjustment. The components are supplied by an RBS-P 2065 gravity-driven roller conveyor for each assembly line. The products are lifted onto the workbench manually. Both the workstations and the roller conveyors were designed in accordance with the customer's concept for ESD protection. At the request of the customer, a pick-to-light system was also integrated.
