Standing workstation with height-adjustable footrest

Problems

Work on bending machines requires components to be inserted, held and retrieved. Since the machine is generally rigid, the working height is the same for all workers. Individual adjustment is difficult, leading to many workers adopting unfavourable static body postures.

Solution

The bending machines in the Trumpf Trubend 7000 range are designed such that sufficient legroom is provided at the workplace for the task to be performed either standing or with a standing support (see also EN 693:2011, Section 5.8.7 and EN 12622:2014, Section 5.5.3). This effective solution enables the body posture to be alternated and relief to be provided for the legs. In order to ensure a healthy body posture for persons of different height, a footrest is fitted that can be adjusted to the desired height by means of a simple mechanism assisted by a gas strut (see EN ISO 14738:2009, Section 8).
