Lista workbenches aimed for dental laboratories

April 14, 2010
Bench system offers strength and custom features.

Lista International Corporation has announced a workbench system for use in dental and orthodontic laboratories.

With a combination of robustness and features configured specially for dental laboratories, Lista's workbench system provides strength for the demanding dental laboratory environment.

"Lista dental workbenches are not only stylish, but surpass competitors when it comes to quality, economics, and flexibility for reconfiguration," said James Anderson, Lista's vertical market and national accounts manager for laboratories. The cabinets have the strength, quality, weight capacity, and ease of drawer operation that dental laboratories need."

The systems come with a lifetime warranty from Lista, a producer of productivity-enhancing storage and workspace systems.

The typical dental technician workbench is 4 foot x 2 foot, but the benches also come in five- and six-foot sizes. They are offered in single and double-sided configurations to support work flow preferences and space requirements.

The workbenches can also be ordered with mobile casters for ease of repositioning. Worksurface depths are available in two-inch increments from 24 to 36 inches.

Worksurface lengths come in five sizes, ranging from 30 to 72 inches. Lista's integrated downdraft suction system is available in all bench sizes and is incorporated in the bench.

Lista benchtop systems are ergonomically friendly, allowing a lab technician to set the height of the worksurface to meet individual needs from a height of 28 inches to 34 inches. Work pan shelves can be adjusted vertically in three-inch increments, and the tilt can be easily changed from flat to 15 or 30 degrees.

Lighting is one of the key features of the Lista bench system. A four-bulb light provides 147 lumens at the work surface, and Lista can supply color-corrected lighting. The light's height can be adjusted to meet individual needs and lights can be tilted five degrees. In addition, an electrical strip on each bench provides eight outlets per bench.

Lista dental workbenches come with multiple-drawer options and doors are equipped with heavy duty hinges. Works urface materials include a range of laminates, stainless steel, Trespa/resin, Corian, or butcher block.

Lista field representatives are available to visit laboratories and make an evaluation of specific features and configurations.
