While stationary workstations are often formatted to one specific job, portable options must remain more fluid in their configuration as they may be used for multiple tasks. For this reason, many of these units are not only portable but modular workstations as well with the ability to be adjusted in several manners such as height, storage capabilities, and power supply in the case of electronics. Length, width, load capacity, and surface type are additional features that may be adjustable on some models.

Also referred to as multi-purpose workbenches, these workstations are used in virtually every industry including medical, electronics, food and chemical processing, woodworking, and metalworking.

Manufacturing plants, warehouses, assembly lines, clean rooms, and hospitals make use of these often compact pieces of equipment for tasks ranging from electronics repair to simply sharing a computer between workspaces.

There are two main types of portable workbenches, those with casters or wheels and those that fold or collapse.

Casters and wheels attached to the base or legs of a mobile workstation allow the station to be easily slid from one area to the next without disrupting the state of the work in progress on the desk or the order of equipment. Rolling benches, however, cannot be easily transported over rough terrain or stairs.

Folding or collapsible workbenches are built with hinges and removable apparatus that allow the sturdy structure to be slightly disassembled in order to move it. While these can be transported across any surface since they are carried, the tools and supplies must be carefully stored to avoid damage. Additionally, these folded workstations must be made of light materials as heavy stations would be very difficult to move.

Though some steel, hardwood, or aluminum may be used as support or framing, common materials needed for portability include polymers, plastics, plywood, and melamine. Rolling workbenches are often made of these same light-weight materials, though they have the option of heavier elements as they need not be lifted.

Metal and plastic components are formed through extrusion, die cutting, injection molding, and other such processes while wooden elements are sawed and sanded. The many components are nailed, bolted, screwed, and welded together with hinges and casters carefully placed to ensure the ease of transport.
