10 Rules For Successful Lean Assembly Cell Design
After designing and building proven and successful assembly and manufacturing cells for 25 years, we have put together the commonsense rules that run through our cell designs. Whether you are building a few or a few hundred units per shift, they will provide benefit, and pay dividends.
Fleximate Transport Cart Lift
The Transport Cart Lift System is a hybrid of an ergonomic workstation combined with a free or powered conveyor. The work in progress flows on a cart through a progressive assembly. Our unique cart lift system is used to raise and lower the carts to and from a lower cart track.

Fleximate® Integrated Ergonomic Workstations
Worksmart Systems’ Fleximate® integrated workstations are a hybrid of a modular conveyor line that’s combined with ergonomic workstations. Individual Fleximate® workstations are joined together to create optimized, worker-paced, progressive assembly cells. Work in process flows through manufacturing, test, inspection, and packaging on Fleximate® carts. These cells can easily be customized for optimized lean manufacturing. For the ultimate in simplicity and convenience, our entire system is designed to be assembled or modified with only one tool – a 3/16″ Hex Key.
Case Studies: Worksmart Fleximate transport Lines
This video library provides an overview of both standard and custom cells which Worksmart Systems has designed and constructed with our Fleximate Transport Lines. Our system is a hybrid of an ergonomic workstation and a conveyance. The basic building block is a modular workstation constructed with 1.5” od anodized aluminum tubing and fittings with a pair of horizontal tubes. A fleximate Transport Cart rolls on the tubes moving the production from position to position. The stations are connected together by the track tubes to create a custom cell. The Fleximate Transport carts are available it two standard sizes 12” deep x 18” long and 18’ deep x 22” long. Carts are customizable for size, top,fixture details, ESD protection and product rotation.
