NEW to All-Spec! Sovella Workbenches!

by Andy on December 16, 2014

With an increasing number of clients who prefer customized workstations for their production environments and laboratories, All-Spec has introduced Sovella to its growing line of modular furnishing solutions.

Here are some of the awesome benefits you will get by ordering these workstations:

#1: Adjustable Heights

No two workers are built alike–some are tall, some average, and some short. The height of the workstations can be adjusted to satisfy the needs of each individual.

#2: Customizable Designs and Flexible Inventory

Your employees may have specific preferences for organization of work area, tools and materials. With Sovella workstations, you can choose the positioning of every accessory (e.g. standard shelves, computer shelves, bin rails, tool panels, etc.).

#3: Safe and Efficient Working Environment

Sovella designs its products with the end-user at the forefront of its concepts. Creating ergonomic, user-friendly workstations allows workers to operate efficiently, and ensures they return to Sovella when adding a new workstation to their facility.

#4: ESD-Safe Options

If you’re working in an electronics manufacturing environment with static-sensitive material, Sovella provides ESD-safe workstations and accessories to comply with your requirements.

Let’s Work Together

Your facility may have a unique layout with a range of requirements. All-Spec and Sovella together can accommodate for your specific needs and create the best possible workstation(s) solution so that you and your operators can get to work as fast and efficiently as possible.

Last week we went over what grounding does and why you need it, so this week we will start to look into methods of grounding. We noted before that static can come from two objects rubbing together. One of the biggest factors in creating an ESD-safe workplace is stopping static from the object that often moves the most: the human body. By walking, sitting down, moving your arms, or any number of other activities your body can generate static, so it is important to use personal grounding equipment to discharge this energy safely.

Heel Ground Shoe Grounds

If you stand or walk around while working with static sensitive equipment then shoe grounds are essential. These devices wrap around your shoes and create a path to ground from your body through the ground strap to the ground. However, in order for these to work properly you must have conductive or dissipative flooring and you must wear a shoe ground on each shoe. When you are walking one foot is off the ground a lot, so you need a continuous path through each shoe. Shoe grounds come in many styles, including heel grounds, toe grounds, and full sole grounds.

Wrist Strap Wrist Straps

When working at a desk shoe grounds are not as effective since your feet are not always touching a grounded surface and are often hanging from your chair or on a footrest. In this instance wrist straps are used to ground the operator, as they provide a constant ground path. Wrist straps can be plugged into an ESD-safe mat, as well as other ground points. Workstation monitors are one such ground, which have the added benefit of testing your equipment and notifying you if any part of your system fails. You can find workstation monitors that just test wrist straps or both wrist straps and ESD-safe mats at the same time.

That is all for this week, make sure to check in next Monday for more information on grounding your workstation!

All-Spec Industries Workbench Assembly

by Andy on March 7, 2011

As you’ve seen with our last few blog posts, All-Spec Industries has recently released our own line of economical ESD-safe and standard workbenches. With 15 sizes to choose from, these benches are fully customizable and take only half an hour to assemble. The video below goes into thorough detail of how to assemble the bench from when you first receive it to the final product.

(Note: Click on the links below to skip to the video segment of the related part or accessory.)

To begin, you will attach the legs (at the desired height) to the underside of the bench top. This can be done directly on the pallet on which you receive the package. Once you have the bench legs attached, you can turn the bench upright to in order to add the reinforcement bar.

The first accessory the video addresses is the drawer stack. This requires fitting the drawer stack into a groove on the underside of the bench top. Next is the bin drawer, which is easily added by removing the screws under the bench, adding the drawer and then simply tightening the screws back in.

The standard footrest is assembled by selecting the desired adjustment holes and simply inserting the bolts into place. If you prefer an ergonomic footrest (pictured to the left), it is assembled by sliding the footrest pad onto the desired position on the footrest bar and then mounting it into place.

Next in line is the power strip, which attaches to the back of the bench top using four small screws. The bench uprights are then added by fitting the uprights’ brackets on the back end of the bench top and then inserting the bolts into the pre-drilled holes. Bin rails can be added next by loosening the thumb screws, fitting the rail over the uprights and lowering to the desired position. Bins will then fit snugly on the edge of the rail. A roll holder can also be added by simply fitting it onto brackets attached to the uprights.

Bench shelves (pictured to the right) can now be added by loosening the thumb screws on the back of the shelf brackets, sliding them over the uprights and aligning to the desired height notches. The shelf itself is then attached using four bolts with washers.

Lastly, the pre-assembled light frame is added by loosening the brackets, sliding the frame over the uprights and tightening into place. To remove the packing around the bulbs, gently pry open the clips holding the light’s housing together, remove the foam packing and then replace the bulbs. You can then reassemble the light’s housing. To hang the light itself, clip the brackets into the light’s housing and attach the housing bolts through the holes in the light frame. Then tighten the light into place.
