Copenhagen Fur improved efficiency with focus on ergonomics

Over 800 workstations at the world’s largest fur auction were upgraded with LINAK actuator solutions. Effects included a higher level of efficiency, a drop in absence rate from 4 to 3.5 percent and generally, employees were happier.

Over the past couple of years, the Danish based fur auction house, Copenhagen Fur, has upgraded all of 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.
