A stationary work platform can help you maximize your industrial workspace by enabling employees to reach areas that would otherwise be difficult to access. They are often mounted on a crane to make it easier for workers to reach high-up locations in industrial plants.
What is an example of a work platform?
Many of these platforms have adjustable heights to help you find a comfortable working position, which can reduce strain on workers’ backs. They also often have nonslip surfaces to prevent accidental falls. They can be used in a variety of applications, including packaging and assembly stations, HVAC installations, and other industrial tasks.
Some work platforms are designed to be docked together, which lets you convert them into a mobile system in a matter of seconds. These systems use electrically steered drive units and load wheel units to lift the work platform and move it in coupled operation. This allows you to approach the target position under the load accurately and collision-free. You can then operate both vehicles with a single control panel located on the work platform.
Stationary work platforms can be made from different materials, depending on your facility’s needs and budget. They can be powder-coated to resist corrosion or have an antimicrobial finish that keeps microbes from growing on the surface. You can also choose a platform that can be expanded to accommodate additional team members or a larger amount of equipment. This can help you save space and minimize your facility’s footprint in tight spaces.
