Cycling and Ergonomics

The fact that bicycle racing is linked to Ergonomics is quite clear. A bike perfectly tuned to the cyclist`s physique allows for the most efficient focus on power and optimum speed. All cyclists train hard, but one or two manage to become even more successful by making optimum use of resources.

But what does Ergonomics have to do with Automation?

Ergonomics and Automation

When you think about Automation do you connect it to machinery and equipment?  That is correct of course, but there is more to it! Automation is about people. Our work is simplified when constantly recurring, strenuous or even dangerous tasks can be transferred over to machinery through automation.

And this is exactly where Ergonomics comes in. Ergonomics means that you can design your work environment so that working is stress-free and highly efficient.

In many textbooks Ergonomics ends at the office chair or at best already at the computer monitor. At COPA-DATA we think that there is more to Ergonomics. In a world filled with pressure on efficiency, you need to reduce complexity and be able to control machinery and equipment ergonomically. Only this way can you achieve full performance without wasting your resources.

Your advantages:

  • Greatly reduce stress
  • Guaranteed efficient working
  • Less input - better results

Ergonomic Equipment - how?

Our answer is simple: perfect connection of people, processes and machinery through software - with zenon.
