Lean thinking is an instrumental mindset for saving time and money. The best method of achieving a lean process is by creating custom systems that fit your operations. The natural modularity of T-slot profiles and products provides the framework you require for custom, lean workstations.

Lean Solutions

Well-executed lean initiatives can improve lead times and cut quality costs by half, increase productivity by as much as 30%, and reduce inventories by up to 50%. Custom workstations are a way to assist with your lean strategy; they put the required materials and resources at the operator’s fingertips. Lean workstations are strategically designed to create a space optimized for minimal wasted motion and effort.

Station Customization

With 80/20 you’ll have access to a wide range of products for the best workstation to accommodate your specific application. Integrate bins for storage and organization or add pivot joints to mount adjustable computer monitors! Create a workstation that can easily mount motorized lifts to support ergonomic initiatives. The T-slot allows you to create a pressure manifold, so a single hose can pressurize an entire frame.

Make it Mobile

The capacity to add mobility to your workstation supports your complete material handling process flow. Take your station with you – move it through your facility and lock it into place, or wheel it to and from conveyor lines, when and where it’s needed. With 80/20 you can choose from casters that optimize your operations.


Get it Grounded

Did you know that aluminum acts as a conductor, meaning workstations built with 80/20 profiles can be grounded to channel an electrical current? This is important for electronics assembly, repairs, production, and testing where static electricity will have a negative impact. Use aluminum profiles and our ESD panel to ground the charge and dissipate static.
