    • Work Bench Equipment

    • The range of accessories available from item enables users to customise their work benches. Drawer Units and Shelves create storage space for documents, tools and personal items. When everything is in easy reach, work can be completed much faster.
    • Chairs

    • Added comfort and reduced strain – the keys to boosting employee performance at the work bench. The ergonomically designed Chair from item provides noticeable relief from the stresses and strains associated with processes in production operations, workshops and laboratories.

      Back pain, particularly in the case of seated activities, is among the most common complaints and causes of illness-related downtime. Unsuitable seating exacerbates the consequences of poor work bench design caused by the inefficient provision and positioning of tools and workpieces.
    • Power and Data Supply

    • For us, ergonomics and health and safety start right from the power supply.
      Virtually every work bench needs energy in one form or another. That’s why integrating a power supply is a key aspect of work bench planning.

      Whether electricity, compressed air or data – you can stay flexible by integrating Distribution Strips, Multi-Socket Power Strips and compressed air supplies into your working environment. Depending on requirements, the power supply can be fed in above or below working level. Making subsequent changes to the work bench design is also extremely straightforward.
    • Lighting

    • Casting the right light on any work bench – from the LED Illuminated Magnifier to the large Light Fitting 55W, item has the ideal solution for every need. Whether you need the pin-point lighting of a Lamp 35W at your work bench, or want to light up the working area safely with the compact LED Machine Light Fitting, we have the perfect lighting solution for you!
    • Information provision

    • Practical solutions for holding your information – with innovative work bench accessories from item. Work benches are nodal points in a networked production system. They need to be able to send and receive information as integral components in a production control and material flow system. Our comprehensive range keeps your information flowing!
    • ESD Equipment

    • The safe dissipation of electrostatic discharges (ESD) is a basic requirement for modern work benches. Static charges can affect or even destroy measuring devices, factory equipment and of course electronic circuits in a workpiece. A work bench concept must take into account all the components involved in a process and incorporate the people who will be carrying out the work. That is why item offers a wide selection of ESD-safe components including table tops and frames.
    • Tool handling

    • New, innovative accessories for the work bench – the item range of holders. Whether hooks, holders, tool holders or magnetic holders – we have thought of everything!

Four stable struts located directly over the transport castors ensure the trolley is exceptionally stable and provide secure support for Shelves. Consequently, even complete mobile work stations and other special solutions can be moved around with ease.
    • SystemMobile S

    • SystemMobiles S are exceptionally compact. These manoeuvrable picking and provisioning trolleys get tools and small quantities of materials to where they are needed – fast. The single central column is also available in a height-adjustable version. The all-round edging on the tray makes sure everything stays put so that both standard storage boxes and individual items can be moved around as necessary.
    • Accessories for SystemMobiles

    • Individual right down to the smallest detail
      Work materials have to adapt to the work at hand – not the other way round. That is why SystemMobiles can be configured to suit the specific features of the production system where they are being used – no matter how often that production system changes.
  • Line D30

  • Simple handling is the key feature of Line D30 and delivers maximum cost efficiency through continuous improvements in manufacturing processes. It is made possible by non-machined connections, simple joining and a forgiving design principle. The freedom and flexibility of a tubing system coupled with the item Building Kit System result in a diverse range of possible combinations. Giving you the ultimate flexibility for turning your ideas into reality.

    The components deliver exceptional performance – significantly lighter than steel designs but still stable, thanks to the benefits of profiled tubes. Fastenings can be implemented anywhere – in the perfect position and at any angle. Furthermore, support of the item Profile 6 groove enables users to take advantage of the wide range of accessories in the MB Building Kit System.
    • Profiles and accessories

    • A fully rounded solution
      The Tubes and Profiles in Line D30 have one thing in common – their basic diameter of 30 mm makes solutions incredibly rigid. It also corresponds to the modular dimension of item Profile 6, producing a whole range of opportunities for combination.
    • Fasteners

    • Ingenious fasteners
      The unique concept of Fasteners D30 allows unrifled Tubes, Profile Tubes and Profiles with standard grooves to be connected together using the same fastening elements.
      High clamping forces ensure the construction is stable and the item clamping technology prevents twisting in contact with unrifled Tubes.
      item provides additional bracing struts as an optional extra to counteract high moment loads.
    • Fastening Elements

    • Endless possibilities
      Structural components are enhanced by fastening elements for panelling and working surfaces and for making sure information and container mountings are close to hand. This opens up new opportunities for integration into existing production facilities or adding functional elements with ease. Elements from third-party suppliers can also be added.
    • Material Flow

    • When movement matters
      Goods, finished parts and consumables – in a modern production system everything has to keep flowing. Achieving that requires cost-effective conveyor systems.
      Sliding items over abrasion-resistant strips ensures that they reach the work bench safely.
      Various types of roller conveyor help keep the supplies coming in from Kanban shelves. The material flow components in Line D30 are incredibly easy to build and install – ensuring that everything flows smoothly.
