A “module” is a standardized, often interchangeable component of a system or construction that is designed for easy assembly or flexible use. A modular workbench, then, is a workbench that a person can put together or take apart easily.
Modular workbenches can be customized in many different ways. Standard questions a manufacturer might ask are about height, width and depth, the type of flooring on which the bench will be placed, material type of the bench, the expected weight supported and what purpose the customer plans for the workbench.
Work benches may be made of steel. If so, another question will be, “Is the desired steel lightweight or heavyweight? If unknown, the next question should be, “What is its required capacity?” Modular workbenches can come equipped with wheels, and those wheels may be customized to have a locking mechanism.
If a consumer is working in a humid place, a wooden workbench may be designed with standoffs. Standoffs allow for proper air circulation, which helps safeguard against the warping that wooden benches can suffer from seasonal heat and humidity changes. Also, bamboo work surfaces can come treated with UV-cured protective coating.
Since a modular workbench has parts, it may come with more than one material. For example, a heavyweight steel frame could hold up a rubberwood top. Many workbenches come equipped with space underneath to add storage modules.Read More…
