Kopenhagen Fur improved efficiency with focus on ergonomics

Some 800 workstations at the world’s largest fur auction were upgraded with LINAK actuator solutions. The effects were a higher level of efficiency, a drop in sick day rate from 4 to 3.5 percent and a general increase in employee satisfaction.

Over the past couple of years, the Danish based fur auction house, Kopenhagen Fur, has upgraded all its adjustable workstations. Electric actuator solutions from LINAK have replaced manual adjustment by crank handle, enabling the sorters to easily adjust the workstations themselves – a task usually requiring help from a colleague.

The results are remarkable. Get the full story in the video below.
