Workshop cabinets belong alongside every machine and in every hall. They are essential for all necessary tools and monitoring equipment, so that they are always on hand. These cupboards are used in industrial companies for the storage of small parts as well as tools. A workshop cabinet can be available in a variety of forms. The most commonly used are the one and two door cupboards as well as sets of drawers. These are available in a variety of sizes. The cupboards are most commonly made out of galvanised, lacquered or powder coated steel. Plastic can be used for small cupboards or drawers.
The cupboards can also be differentiated in terms of their mobility; some are stationary and some are mobile. The mobile cupboards can be placed exactly where they are needed. They are most suited to be used as storage cabinets for machine tools. Combined models with drawers and doors are common. Many manufacturers use particular models and just modify them to fit individual requirements.
On the inside, many cupboards contain rails on the side walls, which allow shelving units and cabinets with doors to be placed in the cupboard. If drawers are used, these are differentiated between normal drawers and heavy-duty drawers. The heavy-duty drawers are usually used for the storage of screws, nuts, bolts and other similar small components.
Workshop cabinets are used in all industries including metalworking, woodworking, and chemical and plastic processing. Even reparation sectors and locksmiths require workshop cabinets. An example is a workshop cabinet directly next to a lathe. This usually contains one or two compartments that can be pulled apart from one another exposing the shelves underneath. These types of cupboards are available with one or two doors. The compartments are used to store documents or measuring equipment. Chucks, lathe tools, tailstock, bezels and tailstock centres can be stored on shelves underneath. The workshop cabinets often contain a counter top that allow for required tools be laid out within reach.
