Portable workbenches are non-stationary, task driven workspaces designed to provide efficient and mobile units in a variety of industrial, commercial and residential environments. The term workbench can be misleading as these constructs often consist of a flat table-like work surface and the attached components, such as drawers and shelving, needed to improve organization and productivity by creating easy access to all tools and supplies required for the completion of a task.
While stationary workstations are often formatted to one specific job, portable options must remain more fluid in their configuration as they may be used for multiple tasks. For this reason many of these units are not only portable, but modular workstations as well with the ability to be adjusted in several manners such as height, storage capabilities and power supply in the case of electronics. Length, width, load capacity and surface type are additional features that may be adjustable on some models.
Also referred to as multi-purpose workbenches, these workstations are used in virtually every industry including medical, electronics, food and chemical processing, woodworking and metalworking. Manufacturing plants, warehouses, assembly lines, clean rooms and hospitals make use of these often compact pieces of equipment for tasks ranging from electronics repair to simply sharing a computer between workspaces.
