Elabo sets standards in partially automated manufacturing

 

When converting its production, Microsens GmbH in Hamm, Germany, relied on Elabo's expertise in the field of ESD assembly workspaces. Microsens GmbH manufactures active components for data networks.

Last year, production at their site was completely restructured. Expanding their capacities was as much a focus point as the introduction of new products, which placed additional demands on quality assurance. Therefore, after a new assembly machine had been acquired, the question arose of how the downstream, manual workspaces could be adapted to the new processes and higher output.
 

"When we procured the new equipment, we wanted to ensure that we were providing the best possible conditions for our employees," said production manager Markus Thiem of the initial situation at the commissioning of the InForm system solution. Which is why during consulting, ergonomics was prime among the considerations for the multi-shift capacity utilization of workspaces.


Microsens

The tables, which are height adjustable by electric motor and have not one but three light sources, make it possible for employees to adjust their workspaces to their individual needs at any time and to optimize them according to the requirements of the manufacturing process. Visual inspections, for instance, are always conducted under perfect light conditions – and within easy reach. The three lighting sources provide perfect illumination not only of the table top, but also of the inclinable work surface. The work stations are completed by a power bar within easy reach as well as a lockable floor unit with two drawers. 

The Microsens team was not only impressed by the hardware, but also by the intelligent details. For instance, the tables' electric connection itself is "invisible", as are the socket bars that supply electricity for the lighting and additional equipment. In addition to further measurement equipment, production management also acquired smoke evacuation systems. In this area as well, the Elabo solution was not an obstacle, but quite the opposite: The systems were integrated into the workspaces seamlessly.
