SHOP SOLUTIONS All workstations comprise an electronic shop-


fl oor lift module with a stroke of 8" (203 mm), which can be lifted and lowered by a pushbut- ton. A rotary module may be released manually in steps of 45°; allowing the fi tter to use two foot switches without walking around the container. “The prototype of the assembly workstations had only one foot switch. In order to work more effi ciently, the fi tters had the idea of a second foot switch; this suggestion could rapidly be imple- mented by Roemheld,” Kämmerer said. After the design of the assembly workstations was completed, he ordered the components from Roemheld and assembled them. To preserve the surface fi nishes during work, he also developed a clamping device provided with brushes on the bearing surfaces.


Roemheld’s modular lifting and rotating modules reduced labor for assembly of Thermo Fisher Scientifi c’s 40 lb (18 kg) incubators.


“The clear position fi xation and the defi ned handling by means of the 45° indices noticeably reduced the risk of dents


in the container,” Pergande said. Time savings and cost re- duction are not high priorities in this design, though both are achieved. He emphasizes that ergonomic workstation design
