EDL worked closely with the client and operators to understand the unique requirements of the workstation. For the heart of the unit, we designed a novel linkage and lever mechanism for the operator to easily lift, hold and tilt the bucket. The mechanism was surrounded by a dust-tight enclosure with top loading door modeled after laboratory glove boxes. The enclosure was enhanced with sheet metal design features and a vacuum system to improve internal material recapture. We delivered detailed drawings ready for manufacturing.
