While some industries have been using motion control solutions for years, other industries could still benefit from modern hinge designs – ceramics being one of them.
We’ve probably all experienced a stiff neck or a sore back from sitting all day, and it’s no fun. With proper ergonomics, however, such ailments can often be alleviated.
Good ergonomics in the workplace, will enhance employee comfort and increase productivity. Ergonomics is essentially the science of adapting a job or position to specifically fit the worker - and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has taken on a leading role in helping promote and advocate for such environments.
In this post, we'll take a closer look at OSHA's ergonomics guidelines for a healthy workplace:
Industries over all the map -- hospitality furniture, outdoor and professional kitchen appliances, ergonomic office equipment, medical equipment, and more -- need motion control solutions. Sometimes, the path to their end result zigs and zags several times.
Whether you’re looking to consolidate production of an existing product or improve the design of a new one, single-source manufacturing makes sense.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still in effect and winter fast approaching, it’s crucial to be prepared for the work-from-home holiday.
The user experience for a product with a heavy lid or cover can range from awkward to annoying to downright dangerous.
Picture holding an industrial toolbox lid in place while reaching in one-handed, maybe twisting your back in the process. Or what if it comes down suddenly when your arm or fingers are in the way? The bruises won't be pretty, and the damage might be much worse.
This is why many designers add gas spring lid supports to their lid design. Others lean toward using counterbalance spring mechanisms or other mechanical spring solutions.
You wouldn’t want to work in a building that’s not fire-safe, would you? Leaving your toaster strudel in the microwave too long becomes a big hazard.
The way health care is delivered in hospitals is changing. Yet every medical center must still meet the same standards of exceptional care.
Is standing at work healthier than sitting? Yes, but even employees with a sit-stand desk don’t want to be on their feet all day.
Today “motion control” implies automation, robotics, and electronics. But you’d be amazed what you can achieve when you combine old-fashioned mechanical engineering with a creativity-minded manufacturer.
Ergonomics isn’t just about what kind of ergonomic office products you’re using; ergonomics is about making life easier and relaxing your customers’ or employees’ bodies to be more comfortable. Whether at work, home, or a medical facility, you can always apply ergonomics.
