Bespoke industrial workbench benefits are numerous and should not be overlooked when planning your processing environment

The incorrect working environment is one of the biggest problems which contributes to lower than expected productivity.

Often when setting up or modifying processes, little thought is given to the person or environment. This leads to inefficient systems.

Often the only consideration is the amount of product that can be processed per hour, a commercial figure which doesn't take the staff into consideration.

A large influencer in productivity within a manual process is the environment, getting this right is of the utmost importance.

With an investment in the right efficient, ergonomic process equipment, large gains in productivity can be achieved.


Simply putting a basic table, a basic bench or a stack of pallets – then expecting targets to be met is normally a recipe failure. This just unnecessarily puts increased pressure and working stress on staff.

Whilst the initial capital investment on basic tables is a little smaller, the specially designed bespoke industrial workbench benefits can be seen through large productivity gains.

Good quality, robust and most importantly well designed for process workstations will of course offer many benefits over a simple bench.

These also aid in providing a ergonomically better environment for users.

To have just the tools and equipment required, along with a workstation with the IT equipment, weighing or packaging aids built into it will bring soon provide payback on the extra investment.

Making the job quicker and easier for your employees is ultimately the end goal.

User posture improvements using bespoke industrial workbenches

High volume processing or packing roles should always be carried out stood up to gain better productivity, whilst delicate functions such as small component assembly or repair are normally better carried out whilst seated. However, it is important to provide either suitable anti-fatigue mats or ergonomic chairs.

A correctly designed bespoke industrial workbench benefits your staff by accommodating their height and preference for standing or being seated. These items help by providing a more comfortable working position – in simple terms workers can stand or sit comfortably for longer, whilst providing a reduction in fatigue-related injuries.

Preventing workplace injury, strains and fatigue should always be of the utmost importance for employers. This can only be achieved with the correct equipment.
