A workstation in a production line often consists as a part of a material line or a robotised station. Automated workstations traditionally perform its function with pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, but now they are more often replaced by servo technology which gives a more exactly positioning and faster action.
The body of workstations can often be built using aluminum profiles together with merging components. The profiles provide an easily customizable platform, on which to mount sensors, servos and cylinders. The aluminum is also coated with an electrical-insulating coat, to protect operators from hazards in case of an unexpected electrical fault.
At Ekatech we draw all our workstation in 3D-CAD, in order to find any flaws in the design. The 3D-drawings also helps you as a customer to get a preview of the system, and allows you to get your inputs into the design and functionality before any construction has begun.
