IAC Workbench/Workstation Offers Superior Ergonomics
Ergonomic workstation.
Brea, CA — The Pro Series Adjustable Height product line from IAC Industries includes the 950 Workbench, which reportedly is designed to provide the best ergonomics available in a standalone workbench/workstation. The focus on ergonomics provides a platform on which assembly processes take place in greater comfort and efficiency for the operator, which in turn generates greater productivity.

These workbenches utilize a cantilever supporting leg design that provides two primary ergonomic advantages. With the elimination of the front legs found on standard workbenches, the new workbench provides superior leg and knee clearance. Most notably, it enables easy worksurface height adjustment using a convenient hand crank on the side of the station, just under the worksurface. The height of the worksurface ranges from 30 to 42-in. (762mm to 1.1m). Positioning is precise, with one full turn of the crank moving the worksurface approximately 0.2-in. (5mm). The front of the worksurface is a very comfortable 180° rolled edge to reduce stress on arms and wrists.

Worksurface sizes range from 48-in. (1.2m) long x 30-in. (762mm) deep, to 72-in. (1.8m) long x 36-in. (914mm) deep, and may be finished in very durable standard or ESD plastic laminates available in a variety of colors.

The workstation's steel structure is finished chip-resistant powder coat paint, also available in a broad range of colors. This adjustable height workstation can move a total weight load of 500 lbs. (227kg) evenly distributed, which includes accessory items added to the bench. The static weight capacity is 600 lbs. (272kg). A broad range of accessories expands the capabilities of the 950 Series, including suspended drawers and cabinets (incorporating ergonomic, flush mounted handles), instrument shelves, the MTS above-worksurface storage and utility system, and a variety of power channel options. All these accessories rise and lower as the worksurface height is modified.
