Making the workplace lean, safe and comfortable

12 September 2019

MiniTec’s modular aluminium profile systems make the workplace lean, safe and more comfortable.

MiniTec UK design and manufacture a modular aluminium profile system which can be used to construct an enormously diverse range of systems and products.

Machine safety

Probably the most common solution is the machine guard or cage essential for workforce safety. The Machinery Safety Directive EN ISO 13849-1 places an obligation on both machinery designer and operator to ensure that equipment is fitted with adequate safeguards to protect machine operators, and any other staff working in the vicinity of such machinery. The safety guards and cages not only protect the operator from hazardous moving equipment but also act as “retainers” to protect product from flying off the equipment thus causing potential damage to both equipment and staff.

Thanks to the modular design the system can be assembled easily on site with only the minimum of effort and tools. The profiles are fixed together using standard M8 fasteners which makes disassembly and relocation of the construction, if required, simple and low cost.

Ergonomic workstations

Another very popular requirement is for ergonomically designed assembly lines and workstations. Not only is the safety and long-term well-being of the workforce protected but carefully thought out installations will contribute to making an operation more effective and productive.

Safe handling of heavy components between operations

The safe handling and transportation of heavy items is a major concern for all operations today. The MiniTec modular profile system lends itself perfectly to the construction of, for example, transfer systems to move heavy items around the operation.
