Stainless steel mobile workstation
Mobile workstation in stainless steel from FORSIS
FORSIS sees itself as a holistic solution provider. Although the focus is on the stainless steel industrial PCs with their different series, the consistency of the stainless steel series is also available for our mobile workplace in stainless steel. Thus, the feedback can be designed mobile as an overall concept in combination with the mobile workplace in stainless steel. Peripheral components can be integrated into the overall system as a supplement or completion, as required.
The stainless steel mobile workplace meets the requirements with regard to the hygiene guidelines for operating equipment for the pharmaceutical industry, the food processing trade and the food industry. The basic requirement is the use of stainless steel as the housing material and food-approved materials in the area of the seal.
The complete solution is in the foreground at FORSIS, always under the aspects: hygienically safe and functional in handling.
Depending on the available space and the size of the components, the body can be determined as the basic component. FORSIS offers two variants.
The Type S is designed for minimal space. Even the removal door has been moved to the side of the workplace so that there is no risk of accidents in a narrow corridor. A battery supply is not possible here.
The Type M offers significantly more space in the printer room.
It can be operated independently of the mains with or without a battery unit.
You can then assemble the further expansion stages yourself and thus design the workplace.
The mobile stainless steel work station combines the functionality of our stationary devices with the flexibility of the mobile work station in stainless steel. Simply take your workplace with you instead of running back again and again!
The mobile stainless steel workstation from FORSIS is robust, easy to clean and has all I/O devices on board if required: printer, scanner, RFID reader, WLAN, power supply and much more.
Other features are:
- Customized solution consisting of industrial PC, V2A container and various I/O devices
- Hygienically safe design according to HACCP and EHEDG in terms of features and construction
- Easy to clean as there are no dead spots - liquid accumulation is prevented
- Mobility through integrated WLAN and power supply (optional features)
There are no limits to the development of a mobile workplace. Rather, the requirements of the customer determine its characteristics and one of the strengths of FORSIS is the implementation of these requirements.
The development of the small removal door for labels in the front area can be seen here as an example.
1st stage: The door stop had to be changed from left to right due to a customer request
2nd stage: Door stop is now also possible below
3rd stage: An automatic retraction of the door was a customer request, was solved by a spring system,
The goal was to avoid getting stuck on the door
4th stage: The door was repeatedly forgotten to be fully locked and moisture ingress occurred
A magnetic closure was also attached.
At the end of the development, the end result went into the standard of the mobile stainless steel work station.
Type M: Hygienic mobile workstation made of stainless steel - printer and battery
With the mobile work station in stainless steel from FORSIS, a temporary EDP information point can be set up in an extreme environment.
During the cleaning process or during critical work processes, the mobile workstation in stainless steel can then be moved to more protected areas, which simplifies many work processes.
The system of the mobile workplace in stainless steel is also available with its own power supply for mains-independent operation on request.
Type S: Hygienic mobile workstation stainless steel - printer
Type S works here as a mobile printer box. A battery supply is not possible here.
For the safe and protected transport of label and laser printers, the mobile workplace in the hygienic environment offers precisely coordinated technology. This begins with the actual printer room, the height-adjustable pull-out shelf, the sophisticated removal door and of course the power supply.
Would you like to plan more flexibly - the type M of the stainless steel work station offers a multitude of variants and options.
Hygiene guidelines (HACCP, EHEDG) regarding mechanics and construction
For the mobile workplace in stainless steel, the hygiene guidelines according to HACCP and EHEDG apply, which means specifically:
- No dead spots for easy cleaning
- All surfaces are bevelled, so there is no accumulation of liquid
- Triple trapezoidal seal in silicone, blue
- HL cam lock with HD cam
- Protection class at least IP65
- Stainless steel surface: grain 320 brushed
Fine details of the stainless steel mobile workstation
- Hygiene comes first: cams, handles, PG screw connections
- Industrial and hygiene-approved keyboards
- Barcode reader with protection class
- Mechanical special solution made of stainless steel, e.g. door closer, food-grade castors, cable ducting in protective hoses
DIN rail mounting in the mobile workstation stainless steel
As an option, components can be mounted on a DIN rail in the upper area of the body.
The mounting rail offers space to accommodate, for example: USB distributor, LAN distributor and power supply
FORSIS can also create the cable feed or cabling completely according to your ideas. We deliver "turnkey!"
Cable connections between mobile workstation and device
There are critical points in every system that must be observed with particular care. In the hygienic environment, these are the cable bushings at the workplace or on the industrial PC. Tightness must always be given. Nevertheless, sometimes things have to be done quickly. You can get by with various providers without any soldering work. The company Icotek offers solutions here.
The know-how lies in the door technology - front door
On the one hand we have the requirements for tightness - on the other hand we have to be able to remove papers and labels quickly in order to operate the mobile workplace without great effort.
There must be accessibility that closes securely and is easy to handle. There are basically two doors at the stainless steel work station.
The "large" front door opens the entire mobile workplace. It is used to load paper, label rolls, etc. This door can have a handle or can only be opened using a latch.
The "small" removal door always has a handle, since constant opening and closing must be easy to do here. The door is optimized with return spring and magnet closer.
The details of the "removal door"
Completely on the inside and therefore no contamination! According to this premise, all components of the stainless steel housing
systems constructed. Here especially the HL hinge.
No risk of forgetting. The removal door closes automatically.
Thus the tightness is given and also the accident risk of an open door is prevented.
Quick opening - still tight. The magnetic lock also closes the removal door if it is not closed with the handle. Ideal for frequent label removal.

Battery unit and DC/AC converter
Securing the power supply can be an essential part of the mobile workplace in stainless steel, it is an option.
Depending on the consumers, here especially their supply voltage (AC or DC) and their power consumption (VA), the supply units of the trolley solution are selected, specially adapted to your needs.
- Supply voltage: DC 24V or AC 230V
- Optional DC/AC converter with either 350W or 600W
- Battery capacity with 50Ah or 85Ah
- AGM technology or LeFePo
- Protected but externally accessible connector for the charging cable
- Integrated charge controller with overcharge and deep discharge protection
