|An ergonomic assessment checklist helps identify and address potential safety issues before they become a problem, especially in manufacturing. Here we’ll lay out a checklist in three parts:
1. Ergonomic manufacturing equipment
2. Ergonomic standards in the workplace
3. Ergonomic manufacturing hazards and how to avoid them
When it comes to designing for user experience, motion control systems allow for safety and flexibility. These characteristics not only improve the durability and longevity of your product but also allow for:
Getting the right hinge for your commercial or industrial product relies on having a trusted and reliable hinge manufacturer. Enter cellular manufacturing.
No matter where you live, work, or play, there are hinges around. Cabinets, fridges, grills, cars, and airplanes all have hinges that we interact with on the day-to-day.
Boats in particular offer an interesting opportunity for implementing kinematic motion control, mechanical spring counterbalance, and spring assist technologies. Marine hinge design takes into account factors ordinary hinge design might not, including weather condition, humidity, and corrosion.
5 Heavy-Duty Hatch Hinges + Design Guidelines
We cover the basics on heavy-duty hinges for:
Even though electroplating sounds like a process straight out of a science fiction movie, it’s actually an excellent way to enhance the look, durability, and functionality of metal components.
Motion control has made a lot of tasks easier in a number of industries. New products incorporate counterbalance or spring-assist hinges to provide a new, improved solution to an old or long-standing problem. Weber Knapp offers a series of case studies to provide you with a better idea of the potential solutions to any hinge-related problems you may encounter.
Workers deal with a lot of equipment and applications that can cause trauma to their hands. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 102,350 total hand injuries occurred in 2020.
From the retractable keyboard tray you use at work, to the industrial refrigerator door in the restaurant kitchen and the bar pass-through at the diner where you got breakfast today, hinges are a part of everyday life. They also factor into the various tasks at work and the product design of new must-haves for today’s society.
