“Our new customized ErgoTranz helps operators in our Listerine factory in Pennsylvania to lift 45-pound rolls of plastic wrap from the vertical position, move them ten feet, and load them horizontally onto mandrels at two different heights with absolutely zero strain of any kind.  This ErgoTranz features a specially designed all-electric rotating grip arm that grips and holds the plastic wrap from within the center roll, as well as motor-action push-off, all controlled with an easy-to-use hand pendant.  The operators on the line are very pleased, and reliability has been excellent.   Indeed, we are so satisfied we have ordered two more ErgoTranz units.”

“In our factory in Illinois, we need to lift and pour 90-pound pots of very hot liquid up to five feet off the floor.  These conditions raised the risks of burns and also muscle strain for our staff.  We found the Ergotranz in an online search, and the Ergotech staff helped us customize it.  It has special grippers that hold the pots securely, and the mast was altered to fit under a low ceiling in that area of the factory.  The installation is a success.  The workers like working with the ErgoTranz, it has increased efficiency, and most importantly, it has made this operation very safe.  We have been very happy with the ErgoTranz.”

“Conventional cylinder rollers in our inspection wash area were rusting out, (causing work shutdowns).  We need to rotate parts 360 degrees without tipping.  We converted to the Ergo Rollers, an easy and painless install.  The product has met and exceeded our expectations.  They are corrosion resistant, easy to replace, and omnidirectional.  They have been in place for over a year with no issues, and have improved efficiency and safety.  The employees are so thankful, because their job is much easier to perform safely.  They love working with the rollers!  The Ergo Roller has worked so well we are doing another installation in a larger area of the facility.”

Jon Courtois, Maintenance Engineer Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems America

“Welding seams on nickel alloy exhaust ducts used on helicopters can be awkward. To hold and position these ducts and to get access for welding from any direction used to be a challenge. Today, the ErgoMaster work positioner enables easy manipulation to any suitable work position. The weld team is happy and we have within a short period been able to achieve improved efficiency, productivity, quality and safety. It’s simply a great machine.”

Kevin Wilson, Chief Welding Engineer Turbo Combustor Technology

“We worked with Ergotech Inc. to develop and implement six new custom lift and rotating devices. The project went very smoothly due to their exceptional personal attention and commitment to service. I highly recommend Ergotech Inc. to any company looking to build or develop this type of custom devices.”

Gary Fowler, Senior Manufacturing Engineer FMC Technologies

“While the standard Ergo Tranz unit had been evaluated and found to be very robust and far superior to the competition, Gillette still needed customizations to make it fit our particular applications.  After working directly with Ergotech’s designers, a custom unit was successfully prototyped. We currently have fourteen systems at work that are ideal for Gillette. Working with Ergotech Inc. was a great experience.”

Tim Lagerstedt, Manufacturing Engineer Gillette

“In our daily production, we use the Ergotech products to hold and manipulate motorcycle parts into ergonomically convenient work positions. We have used the products for years without any maintenance. They last.”

Daniel Raudensky, Manufacturing Process Engineer Harley Davidson

“We have had good luck with the Ergotech products and they fill our application nicely. Compact systems without any maintenance”

Chuck Priese, Engineer Herman Miller

“Applying Ergotech lift devices have been proven to be a huge success at Sikorsky. The original operation required up to four mechanics. Today the task can be performed with just one operator. One operator stated that this product is one of the best tools he uses within the company.”

Joe Weisbruch, Senior Manufacturing Engineer Sikorsky Aircraft

“All of our operators love using the ErgoTranz unit. Everyone who has seen it in use wonders why we didn’t get this product sooner. The job this lift is being used for has always been physically challenging and required two people because of the size and weight of the materials being transported. Now, with the ErgoTranz, just about anyone can handle this job without assistance.”

Rick Enger, Controls Engineer/Project Coordinator Polaris

“We use the unique ergonomic rollers in many of our shop applications. We find them working great for manipulating our tires.”

David Dole, Corporate Ergonomic Manager Michelin

“Our assembly employees found that if they apply the Ergo Roll with a graphite lubricant, the mortar being used in our assembly process would not stick to the rollers and could easily be removed after it dries. Of all the rollers we have purchased, we have had zero failures and they all still work as they did the day they were installed.”

Scott Berry, Engineering Vesuvius

“The U.S. Army Corpus Christi Depot is the largest rotary-wing repair facility in the world, and we have to handle some very heavy loads, weighing tons.  The ErgoControl is extremely reliable, very adaptable, and our operators love working with them.  We are ordering more of them.”
