Best practices -- Adjustable-height worktables
Adjustable-height worktables used in computer industry
Height-adjustable worktables help maintain an ideal working height for easier assembly of computer mainframes. The in-floor design allows for computer mainframes to be rolled onto the table. The hydraulic lift table can then be adjusted to the appropriate height for the task, minimizing awkward postures while working.
Above left, a locking system, designed in-house, prevents rolling while work is performed. Operators can also rotate the tabletop when necessary.
