Midland workstation builder rolls out new configurator

MIDLAND—Bostontec, the Midland-based maker of height-adjustable steel workstations for the manufacturing, warehousing, healthcare, and technology industries, has rolled out a new 3D configurator system at https://www.bostontec.com/design-workstation/.

Company officials say the new system is designed to help users build their ideal modular workstation including a ­full selection of company catalog accessories. The configurator is freely available to all users.

“Planning workstations for specific applications can seem like a daunting process,” said Bostontec president Kelly Wehner. “There are many variables and options to consider. Where do we place shelves, lights, or drawers on the workstation? What accessories are available? Can we fit all the accessories on the station in an efficient way? These are just some of the questions that prompted us to create the 3D Configurator for our users. Now customers can create their personal modular set-up and see all of the options available to them, in full 3D display, before those stations are even ordered.”

Beginning with a variety of base model types and sizes, users can choose from work surface options, uprights, feet or casters, and more. From there, accessories ranging from shelves, CPU holders, monitor arms, task lights, and others may be added and positioned as desired.

With 24-hour access, the Bostontec 3D configurator helps online users browse and create on the go. Each workstation image populated is 3D and photorealistic in nature, and available in multiple colors and finishes. Users can also zoom-in and out or rotate their creations a full 360 degrees for even more visual detail. After creating and personalizing the 3D model to match their specific needs, the customer will receive a PDF and itemized component list and can submit a request to Bostontec for a quote. The online modeling includes 90 percent of the standard options available for cantilevered workstations offered by Bostontec.

“The online configurations also act as a solid foundation for starting conversations about custom designs in applications that go beyond the standard offering,” Rob Doucette, applications engineer at Bostontec. “Our ability to efficiently create custom solutions is what sets us apart when working with our customers.”
