How an Ergo Master Work Positioner Can Help Reduce Injuries in the Workplace

 In Benefits

Ergonomic solutions like the Ergo Master work positioner are applicable in practically any industrial setting, and many management teams that implement ergonomics into workplace processes see significant benefits in employee safety, efficiency, and health. 

The Ergo Master work positioner is one of Ergotronix’s versatile ergonomic solutions that aim to reduce workplace injuries, increase safety, enable more productive operations, and decrease strain among manufacturers. 

The Ergo Master Work Positioner

Ergonomic manufacturing solutions can be beneficial in any industrial scenario or application. Take, for example, the Ergo Master by Ergotronix. This manual work positioner can make adjustments to your workpiece by allowing for a 360° rotation, and a full 90° tilt, as well as adjusting to any ideal work height, making it ideal for any stand-up or sit-down tasks.

Regardless of the application, the shape of the item being worked on, or the work fixture, the Ergo Master’s multi-axis adaptability makes it an ideal solution for manufacturing professionals.

This Ergo Master has adjustable friction resistance to facilitate streamlined and safe positioning changes. Additionally, the unique design reduces the possibility of workpiece drops and other mistakes, while increasing productivity, enhancing user comfort, and promoting a more productive work process.

The Ergo Master is available in several configurations, including the 2-axis bench mount and the 3-axis floor mount, and load capacities of 50, 150, and 300 lbs depending on the configuration used.

Ergo Master Features:

  • Multi-axis manual work positioner
  • 360º rotation, height, and tilt positioning
  • Repetitive safe holding lock in any desired work position
  • Adjustable friction during positioning transitions
  • Supports workloads up to 300 pounds
  • Ideal for any project or application
  • Mobile options

Benefits of Using the Ergo Master Work Positioner

Using a manual work positioner, like the Ergo Master, presents manufacturing professionals with an array of potential benefits. When such devices are implemented properly, they stand to promote greater workplace safety, improve efficiency and productivity, and reduce injury risks among manufacturing employees. 

Ergonomic solutions, like the Ergo Master, not only save time and reduce the need for physical labor, but they also enhance a worker’s ability to move a heavy workpiece without having to wait for additional help to arrive. 

Let’s explore the benefits of using the Ergo Master in more depth.

The Ergo Master Promotes Safety

By making it easy to reposition welding pieces, workers no longer have to operate in uncomfortable, unnatural positions. Using ergonomic positioning devices to reliably position workpieces, helps prevent employee strain, damage to the workpieces, and errors in production. 

The Ergo Master Improves Productivity

An Ergo master work positioner is designed to safely and effortlessly position the work at hand in a fraction of the time it would take human workers to reposition the piece without a multi-axis work positioner. Furthermore, every positioning step is safely repeated throughout the work process.

As such, less time is wasted and the work floor becomes more productive and efficient.

The Ergo Master Work Positioner Reduces Injury Risks

Manufacturing presents its share of risks, but employee safety should not be one of them. By implementing ergonomic solutions for repositioning work, manufacturing companies can greatly reduce the occurrence of employee injuries and the risk of physical strain. 

The Ergo Master securely clamps and holds the workpiece in any desired work position.

When repositioning is needed, the foot control is pressed, allowing for safe manual rotation, tilt and lift positioning of the item under set resistance friction. This friction resistance prevents accidental drops or undesired motion while reducing injury risks related to the physical strain of repositioning work.

If you’re a manufacturing manager or team leader and you want to promote workplace safety, increase productivity, and reduce injury and strain risks for your employees, we advise you to explore the various ergonomic solutions Ergotronix has to offer. Our offerings are fully customizable so don’t hesitate to contact our team if you have any questions or concerns.
