There is shown and described an improved multi-operator assembly work-
station wherein the improvement resides in the capability of more efficiently
providing parts at the individual workstations.
Referring to the figure, the multi-operator workstation includes a wheel,
manually or electrically operated, for effecting clockwise or counterclockwise
movement of parts holding trays 4, as indicated by the arrow. Parts on trays 4
are presented at work benches 6 which have room for two operators each. The
parts required by each operator for any given task are loaded on a single tray 4
so that assembly operations need not be interrupted to replenish supplies. As
shown, the number of trays 4 is chosen such that when mounted for movement
within the work-station, one tray is even with each work bench while two others
are exposed and ready to receive additional supplies.
The advantages of this workstation include a reduction in frequency of parts
supply to the assembly area, as well as a reduction in the length of reach each
operator experiences in performing a task. Further advantages from a safety
standpoint exist in the protected storage of parts within the workstation.
