Ben Hanawalt, product specialist for Atlas Copco electric assembly tools, recently conducted a webinar on what ergonomics are, why ergonomics are important and how the new Atlas Copco strategy TurboTight can improve an assembly station’s ergonomics. This webinar was open to the public and free of charge. The goal of the webinar was to increase our partners’ knowledge of ergonomics in assembly applications.
Ergonomic issues can create significant costs for manufacturers, and improving ergonomic conditions also helps to improve productivity and employee morale. With decades of industry experience, Atlas Copco is uniquely positioned to provide insight on strategies to improve ergonomic conditions in assembly. There are a variety of strategies that can be used, from tool programming and strategies to new and better ways to hold tools for operators.
