Mobile Assembly Workbenches

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”” align=”center” css=”.vc_custom_1620216611001{padding-bottom: 15px !important;}”][vc_column_text]Our mobile assembly workbenches are the latest workbench design from Kanya UK.

Originating from a requirement by our own team due to a reorganisation of our space, we recognised a need for our workshop operatives’ workbenches to be mobile.

This would then allow flexibility to move the benches around to accommodate larger assemblies for Kanya and more consoles for Thinking Space.
And so the mobile assembly workbenches were born!


Our mobile workbenches combine a mix of the Kanya aluminium profiles with the TSS Core Assembly System for the framework, and Evolution media wall components for the front profiles and feet. The large laminated worktop is overhung to create the maximum flat workspace possible. Two large drawers are provided under the worktop, for operatives to store their essential tools.


Cladding panels are fixed at either end of the leg assemblies, which now give rise to the option to print on, thanks to our new digital printing process. So, a logo, surface print or even personalisation of the workbench with the employees name, photo or their favourite pet, can be added!

Electric height adjustment

Not only are the workbenches mobile thanks to locking casters, but they are also height adjustable. Fitted with a electric control paddle, the desk controls are activated by gently tilting to move the desk up or down.  Preset positions can be added in order to make the height adjustment of your workbench automated,  as well as sit/stand reminders throughout the working day.

For greater personalisation, the Linak App can be downloaded from the App store, from which you can control the desk height. Just connect your device to the desk from your mobile or tablet by bluetooth, and you can adjust the height in real-time, set up your memory positions, or view your sit/stand goals.

Battery operation

A high performance 2.15 Ah battery pack is fitted to each of our mobile assembly workbenches, which is compatible with the Linak electrical actuator. With an audible warning alarm and LED indicator bar, it will automatically remind you when it is time to recharge; recharging with a mains cable to the control box or removing and recharging with an external power supply.

When fully recharged, these provide around 225 cycles of movement before needing to be recharged. Our workshop operatives have found that a single charge can last several weeks, depending on use and weight of items being lifted.

Parts trolley

As part of the mobile workbench set up, a mobile parts trolley was also manufactured for the team. Delivering shared tools and parts to the workbench areas when needed, it has ensured an effective, efficient working area for our operatives.
