RDM Packaging Workstations
Packaging workstations are comprised of packaging tables outfitted with components containing features like shelves and box dividers, file and utility drawers, roll holders, and casters. Articulating accessories such as trays and monitor arms expand the functionality of these work areas. When properly equipped, it is conceivable that a worker can accomplish every task necessary from this station.
Packaging and shipping is a regular occurrence in some facilities and packaging workstations are the perfect industrial furniture for these functions. RDM Packaging tables provide an ample amount of room for boxes to be taped, wrapped, and shipped. Upper box dividers allow a supply of boxes to be kept nearby and trays store packaging supplies like tape, scissors, and markers. They are available in a variety of standard and custom sizes / configurations.
By adding an articulating monitor arm to packaging tables, the workstation becomes a shipping center. Workers can update inventory figures in real time and schedule shipping with a carrier. The upper shelf is perfect for storing packages that are not yet ready to be shipped. Keeping packages there prevents them from being lost or damaged on the facility floor. An articulating tray is suitable for holding a scale to weigh the packages in order to calculate the correct shipping prices.
Locating packaging workstations in several areas within a warehouse means workers never need to travel far to prepare a shipment. This maximizes productivity because it eliminates downtime required to find and wait for an available workstation. Companies like RDM Industrial Products Inc. offer customizable workstation solutions because they manufacture this equipment to customer specifications.
Larger facilities should benefit from the use of several packaging tables containing different features and placed in a line. Similar to a production line, workers can move down as they progress from one stage of the packaging process to the next. This allows several people to work simultaneously, another aspect that enhances productivity within the facility.
