A lot hinges on your industrial supply chain operating smoothly, not least the survival of your business. However, computer downtime constantly threatens to derail supply chains all over the world. How then can the humble Industrial Computer Workstation serve to safeguard your supply chain?
Computers of yesteryear would quickly succumb to dust and heat damage, rendering them useless, while severely disrupting industrial supply chains. Then came the Industrial Computer Workstation…
…Everything changed. Industrial Computer Workstations transformed computer use across supply chains, providing operatives and machinists with a practical, safe, multipurpose solution for using computers without the threat of upsetting the supply chain.
Here’s the story of how the humble Industrial Computer Workstation changed supply chains.
Chapter 1 – The Industrial Computer Workstation Makes the Shop Floor Safer
Industrial Computer Workstations Improve Workplace Safety.
In days gone by, computers were a hazard when used in brutal industrial environments. Prone to overheating, then catching fire or suffering ‘blunt force trauma’ as a result of machinists accidentally bringing computers crashing to the floor after tripping over a bunch of loose cables, computers did more harm to industrial supply chains than good.
Thankfully, the Industrial Computer Workstation has brought an end to computer overheating and the sight of cables dangerously strewn across the workplace. With operatives constantly on the move in large warehouses or industrial workspaces, the likelihood of computer cables becoming a trip hazard is high.
Industrial Computer Workstations house computers and peripherals in such a way that cables are kept out of harm’s way. Meanwhile, computer monitors, printers, keyboards and other accessories are protected from rigorous industrial environments. Not only does an industrial computer cabinet safeguard hardware, it protects staff from serious injury.
An Industrial Computer Workstation is Far Easier to Integrate Across an Industrial Supply Chain.
Chapter 2 – Industrial Computer Workstations Can be Easily Integrated
Unlike the installation of industrial panel PCs, which can cause major upheaval and disruption to supply chains, computer workstations for use in industrial settings do not require drastic changes to software, processes and infrastructure. In fact, you can customise Industrial Computer Workstations to suit any industrial supply chain.

Chapter 3 – An Industrial Computer Workstation can Boost Productivity
Industrial Computer Workstations Protect Computer Equipment and Improve Processes, Boosting Overall Productivity.
Industrial Computer Workstations bring computers to the heart of industrial supply chains. In the past, operatives would have to traipse to another part of a facility just to use a computer or printer.
An Industrial Computer Workstation provides almost everything a worker needs to complete or process a project, within their workspace. Ultimately, what used to be a vast warehouse space or manufacturing floor for your personnel, transforms into a highly-efficient, well-organized workspace that will boost their output and performance.
What’s more, you can customise an Industrial Computer Workstation to be mobile, enabling operatives to take their workstation with them. Each operative can accomplish more in their working day thanks to the convenience of being able to transport their workstation. This represents a massive boost to supply chain productivity.
Equally, by protecting computers, printers and scanners simultaneously, Industrial Computer Workstations significantly reduce the chances of equipment damage. This prevents incidents of downtime, which can have a knock on effect on other areas of your supply chain.

Chapter 4 – Industrial Computer Workstations Deliver an Immediate ROI
Industrial Computer Workstations Deliver a Healthy Return on Investment.
With the risk of damage to supply chain computers greatly reduced, Industrial Computer Workstations deliver an almost instant return on investment by cutting the cost of IT equipment repair or replacement, while reducing the risk of supply chain disruption.
Equally, enabling the use of computers and peripherals at the heart of arduous supply chains saves on man hours, further reducing the time it takes to get a project from start to finish.
