This document explains the scope of ergonomics based on recent research: why businesses can benefit from having ergonomic work¬stations, what requirements apply to workstation design, and what conditions a provider of work bench systems should meet.
Recent years have witnessed major new developments in sensor solutions for handling, assembly and robotics. We are no longer confined to sensors choices from the past with components becoming more powerful, compact, and universal, and are now merging directly with the actuator and comparatively easy to set up.
In manufacturing and design, the trend of the last several years has been towards Big Data. And Big Data, which includes generation, collection, storage, analysis and query of significantly larger amounts of data, presents new challenges for manufacturers.
The white paper “Ensuring Success When Switching from Conventional Lamp to LED Light-Curing Sources” discusses topics such as how LED curing works, the advantages of LED curing, and getting enough information to switch successfully.
When choosing the right application in Industrial Automation, there are several factors that come into play when deciding to use a programmable rotation device with a gearhead vs. cam driven index drive. All of the dynamics of the application must be taken into consideration to ensure the index drive will withstand the high inertial loads throughout the entire product lifetime.
Specifying an air cylinder might seem overwhelming when you consider all the shapes, sizes and types of cylinder products available today. A new white paper delineates the spectrum of available options that can quite often be your key to avoiding the need for a totally custom cylinder.
It doesn’t matter how you spin it. Ergonomics improves productivity. Well-being of employee increases output and with that comes greater profit. Ergonomics allow workers to do their jobs. Do it right, do it safely, do it with comfort, and, do it with accuracy.
