Components for storage, parts presentation, tool organization, worker comfort, and many other applications mean we can build just exactly the structure you need for the task.

ESD – Electro Static Discharge

Components that can be damaged or destroyed by static discharge due to their electrical properties and interior construction are the cause of millions of pounds of lost revenue annually.

Manufacturing equipment and workstations must be ESD-capable to protect sensitive components. Bosch Rexroth’s tested and proven connection technology ensures electrical conductivity of enclosures, frames, tables, and flow racks etc.

As we and Bosch Rexroth take this topic very seriously, ESD requirements have consistently been implemented in many of the components. Our workstation systems offer you a complete package that covers everything, including ESD-capable chairs.

Versatile for you

EcoShape is unsurpassed in its versatility.

The design possibilities are almost endless with just a small number of components. The only tubular framing system of its kind, it utilises the same t-slot system as the profiles in the Basic Mechanical Elements modular profile system and Manual Production Systems. This means that there is even more choice when we are designing professional, custom workstations, material shuttles, and flow racks to meet your needs, as well as many other applications. EcoShape round tubes can be used as a slide rail instead of conveyor rollers using the XLean adapter.

  • Unrivalled versatility for a variety of combinations and configurations
  • Create flexible and uniform applications
  • Achieve high stability with aluminium profiles and engineered connection technology
  • Professionally extend and optimize existing production lines to meet your changing needs as they arise
