Anthropomorphic Data

How can anthropomorphic data be used in designing controls on a machine like a metal press. What are some safety considerations when deciding to design controls for the press for the 90th percentile versus the 95th percentile and what are some important variables to consider if the press requires more than one control that require the independent actions by the operator?

How can anthropomorphic data be used in designing controls on a machine like a metal press

            As Haik & Shahin (2011) notes anthropomorphic data plays a special role in the design of controls on machines since developing these designs relies on a proper understanding of the ergonomic factors involved and the humanly features that will be used by these designs. For example, a metal press such as the Baileigh BP-3 Manual Press that relies on the hand for press might consider the handle to have a handgrip length of about 120mm with a palm distance of about 90mm. Other additional consideration that might……………..

What are some safety considerations when deciding to design controls for the press for the 90th percentile versus the 95th percentile

The safety consideration in both the 90th and the 95th percentiles will consider other aspects such as the space required when pressing the metal, and the size of the handle required by the individual while they are pressing a metal. There must a good match between the metal press handle and the users to allow them easily carry out their tasks hence reducing the chances of injury. Opting for the 95th perce……………………..

What are some important variables to consider if the press requires more than one control that require the independent actions by the operator?

            The important factor to consider is the mix between the heights of the metal press user, radial bend, wrist ulna bend and shoulder rotation when the user is handling the press. Other variables that the metal press will need to consider are the users arm length to reduce strain. The height of the metal press, which will consider its adjustability to allow individuals with different heights to better handle the metal press. Howeve…….
