Bespoke assembly workstations for machine builders

11 benches, designed from images and sketches, were all tailored to individual requirements

RK Rose+Krieger (part of the international Phoenix Mecano group of companies) has been manufacturing components for automation and machine building for over 40 years.

This has embraced an extensive range of products in the fields of linear adjustment, profile technology, connecting and module technology.

“We have recently completed the design and build of 11 bespoke assembly workbenches for a new customer,” says the company. “All of the benches were designed from images and sketches, and all individually tailored for each of our customer’s particular requirements.

Updated assembly cell

"Working closely with the customer and from photos taken off existing benches, R+K were able to produce individual designs for approval for a new updated assembly cell. This flexible approach was instrumental in the awarding of the business to R+K.

These benches are static, but one can easily add lifting columns for height adjustment if required, says R+K.

“We were actually so pleased with the results, we made some more for our own assembly area,” the company adds.
