The Hoffmann Group is set to launch its new access technology products for the first time at LogiMAT 2016, in hall 5, stand 5D55. The new GARANT aluminium stepladders impress with added ergonomics and safety. This is ensured by the new Easyfix hooks and holders, which can be fitted simply to the side rails without the use of tools, making it easier and safer to carry electrical equipment and tools. This means that important equipment is always quickly to hand. As a result, working becomes more comfortable, more efficient and safer.
The Hoffmann Group presents its first ESD-proof GARANT Workstation at LogiMAT 2016 and demonstrates how EPA protection zones (Electrostatic Protection Area) should be set up in order to reliably shield sensitive components from electrostatic discharges. The new GARANT Workstation for protecting against ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is ESD powder-coated and conductive in accordance with DIN EN 61340-5-1. Electrostatic discharges are conducted from the work surface to a grounding cable on the underside of the worktop. This means that the workstation always remains charge-neutral. At LogiMAT 2016 the Hoffmann Group is located in hall 5, stand 5D55.
