Kesseböhmer Ergonomietechnik, Weilheim/Teck, has simplified the assembly of its “TM Q70” sit-stand workstationwhilst at the same time creating an attractively priced product. It is now possible for one person to assemble the electric height-adjustable desk by themselves, with virtually no tools required. Following the so-called “OH” principle, the table top frame is first attached to the table top. This can already be done in the factory.

“OH” stands for “overhead” and refers to the fact that the table top is initially placed upside down, allowing the assembler to conveniently secure the insertable table top frame in place. The columns are then held firmly in position by the frame. This leaves both hands free to first screw in the columns on each side and then the cantilever foot mounts.

This makes it quicker and easier to fix the new frame on to the table top compared to the conventional method where the frame had to be fully assembled before it was connected to the table top in one piece. The fact that the columns can now be screwed to the sides using the “OH” principle is an advantage because it means the manufacturer can already connect the table top frame to the table top in the factory, making assembly on site both quicker and more efficient.

With its “TM Q70 OH (electric)”, Kesseböhmer Ergonomietechnik has significantly enhanced its “TM Q70” line. The new table frame offers all the advantages of a modern sit-stand workstation; available in white, silver or black, it can support a weight of up to 80 kilograms. The internal motor raises and lowers the table top at a speed of 45 mm/second from 650 to 1,250 mm. The table top frame is available in a rigid (1,400/1,600/1,800 mm table top length) and a variable (1,200 to 1,800 mm table top length) version.

The minimal packing volume of the table frame, disassembled into three parts, optimises transport and reduces storage costs. The “OH” assembly principle adds the finishing touch to the product, making it an attractive investment in terms of price
