Optimal dimensions of the work space

21/01/2019 at 16:03

Hello there,
taking into account the below:
– the washing area and collecting poit will be external,
– the 4 machines from Pr Pl will be used,
– we will add 2 machines we will add two machines for finishing the objects,
Which should be the optimal dimensions of the workspace?
I suppose something in between 30 and 70 square meters.
Could anybody advise on this?

Thanks in advance

The workspace recommended for the 4 machines is 40ft container.
length = 12meter, width = 2.35 meter = 28.2 squae meter.

Now you need to measure the size of the 2 machines and how much space you need to use them. Add it to the 28.2, so you will have the minimum required for your need.

Good luck

Be careful with space! One can easily could occupy up to 100sqm when things get serious: pizza oven, vacuum/blow table, assembly table, a few tables for longer experiments or projects and of course storage shelfs (you can’t have enough of these) Also basic things such as cutting and washing plastic down for shredding can easily take 4 sqm.

Hello @cgoflyn thanks for the additional tips.

We are kind of lucky as we will be building the workspace structure before starting the plastic transformation: something simple but efficient.

We were thinking to keep the cutting/washing process out of the workspace, most probably under a front porch, this way we can save some indoor space. We need the front porch in order to be able to work under a shade due to the seasonal heavy rains and the very hot sunlight.
