Adjustable-height worktables used in computer industry

Height-adjustable worktables help maintain an ideal working height for easier assembly of computer mainframes. The in-floor design allows for computer mainframes to be rolled onto the table. The hydraulic-lift table can then be adjusted to the appropriate height for the task, minimizing awkward postures while working.
