Poka Yoke – the accurate manual workstation

Despite digitalization and full automation, there are still complex activities that can only be processed manually. The zero-defect manual workstation offers a unique, cost-efficient and high-quality overall concept precisely for these requirements.

For your error-free manual work

The Japanese "Poka Yoke" approach means the systematic exclusion of human error through technical precautions.

Mitsubishi Electric and the assembly technology specialist HANDKE Industrietechnik have implemented a concept that offers you an efficient, modular and flexible zero-defect workstation.

When everything fits together perfectly

Whether assembly, order picking or logistics – even for applications with lot sizes 1 you are on the right track with this error-free manual workstation. It is equipped with profiles from the most common manufacturers and can be ergonomically adapted. In addition to a classic pick-by light system the system also has physical barriers in the form of door flaps.

The system is also interesting for the topic of human-machine/collaborative robotics – especially if, for example, pre-assembly is necessary or parts have to be handed over. This individually configurable and expandable concept was developed in the automotive industry and can be found in all branches of industry today.
