Manual Work stations
True manual assembly systems are typically individual workbenches for each stage in the assembly process. The product gets passed manually from station to station singularly or in batches. However, there are many variations to manual assembly. For example, you could also use a singular assembly line with a manual transfer conveyor. In this case, workers stand at a specific station along the line and manually push the product down the line as its being assembled. This is usually done in lower volumes rather than production runs.
We built the manual work stations by following the Ergonomics rules to make sure a fatigue less work zone.
