MiniTec is launching a new Workplace Systems catalogue which, at over 112 pages, more than doubles the former offering - reflecting the substantial increase in MiniTec's range of components and assemblies available for workstations, assembly lines, transfer stations and conveyor systems for manual and automated production lines, research laboratories, assembly areas, test equipment and inspection stations.
This catalogue guides readers through the essentials of ergonomic workplace layout, with 14 detailed sections including basic workstations, height-adjustable tables, lighting and power supply, pneumatics, mounting devices and ESD accessories.
The catalogue is available as a PDF download from www.minitec.co.uk or as a hard copy version by contacting MiniTec at its Basingstoke UK office and manufacturing facility.
All of the components covered in the new catalogue are also featured within MiniTec's on-line iCAD interactive design module - an autonomous interactive program that allows individual components to be selected, with downloadable 2D and 3D CAD and image files for use in AutoCAD and other CAD programs, along with complete parts lists. The combination of the hard-copy catalogue format and on-line CAD service ensures that MiniTec's customers are able to specify and design complete workstation and workplace layouts quickly and efficiently using the method that best suits their needs. MiniTec also provides a complete design and assembly service if required.
MiniTec's Workplace Systems product line is part of, and may be freely mixed with, the comprehensive range of machine-building components and systems based around its innovative Profile System. This includes a large selection of modular aluminium profiles that are assembled using the Powerlock fastening system and require no special tools or machining other than cutting the profile to the required length - which saves time and cost compared with other machine-building systems. The range includes ancillary components such as positioners, sensors, safety fence parts, doors, wheels and guards to enable the cost-effective design and fabrication of complete machines for production and test, materials handling systems, work stations, machine guards and automated manufacturing systems.
