Ergonomics and flexibility are the key, rugged basis for special requirements

Flexible, multifunctional and ergonomic: The demands made of modern workbenches are manifold and often cannot be solved satisfactorily with standard products. It is for this reason that RK Rose+Krieger has rethought its RK Easywork and equipped it with numerous features which make the workbench an attractive solution for specific tasks.

The demands made of working people are subject to constant change which should be addressed in the industrial environment with a flexible workbench. Ultimately the cognitive and physical effectiveness of employees depends on their satisfaction and health. Good ergonomics in the workstation increases productivity and reduces absences due to illness.

Ergonomic assembly workstation systems increase productivity and reduce physical strain

Being able to adjust the height of workbenches to suit individual employees minimises physical strain and leads to an appreciable increase in productivity of 5-15 percent on average.
As a rule, the requirements to be met by an assembly workstation are very diverse. Workpieces of varying sizes, shapes and weights in small and medium batch production, conversions/extensions of the production processes or modern LEAN workstations demand a flexible system which can be individually configured or modified as necessary.

The RK Easywork workbench is characterised by customisability. It can be converted flexibly and is available as both a standard workbench and a special solution ideally adapted to the working/manufacturing process. This makes it attractive above all for small and medium batch productions the use of which is not permanent. Thanks to the modular system, the rugged workbench remains upgradable and functionally modifiable even after years. RK Rose+Krieger, as a specialist for LEAN workstations, uses the RK Easywork as the basis for the construction of such a working environment built to special criteria.

Standard workbenches can be configured simply with the online configurator

Given that the demands for an assembly workstation can be very different, RK Rose+Krieger has developed the online configurator, which can be used to configure a complete workstation to suit requirements. Static basic models or height adjustable workstations can be configured and equipped individually.

Step by step, the selection tool guides you through all of the options on the way to creating your ideal workstation. Additional lighting, holders for grab containers, foot rests, standing chairs and ESD accessories are all available, along with other useful devices.

The RK Easywork assembly workstation system is based on RK Rose+Krieger's complete modular system. BLOCAN® aluminium construction profiles and electrically driven RK lifting columns offer a perfect combination for the creation of high-quality table concepts. Customers can configure simple static tables or an electrically height-adjustable workbench. You can then download the respective CAD data or a detailed data sheet for your self-configured workbench. You also have the option of sending an enquiry about this workstation system to RK directly.

The RK Easywork is supplied either unassembled or fully assembled with all the required attachment components.
