GREER, SC: Laptop computers are playing an increasingly large role in integrating the manufacturing environment and ensuring that vital information is available when and where it’s needed. But they can be easily damaged in an industrial setting.

Creform Corp., a Greer, SC-based supplier of materials handling systems, has come up with a Mobile Laptop Computer Station using the company’s system of plastic coated steel pipes, joints and accessories, that provides a secure space for the laptop positioned at a comfortable work height.

The 42 x 38 x 26-in. station’s four large diameter swivel casters ensure easy rolling and maneuverability, and two of the casters lock for greater safety and stability while working. A bottom shelf provides space for a seat but one can be built into the station.

Use the carts to support equipment maintenance and/or installation; make presentations or as a podium from which to control a slide show; document time and results during a kaizen blitz; perform cycle counting and other inventory control activities; provide mobile support to IT technicians; or as a small and simple supervisor’s desk.
