CAS Ergo visits Ford Motor Company!
CAS Ergo visits Ford Motor Company!…. This meant that CAS Assembly Tooling and Services were able to provide a demonstration to 12 employees from Ford. Half of them were visiting from the overseas plant in Turkey and the rest being based at the Ford Dunton Technical Centre in Basildon. They come a long way to see design work every now and again so great to tie this in with their visit to the UK.
Initially they had and application in mind being the ‘Noonee’ Chairless Chair. Engineers have to climb inside the back of vans and attach electrical connections in a bent over position. So, we wanted to trial the Chairless Chair for this as they could trial it in the back of the van. Then to complete the work with less stress and strain on the back/spine. Inside the van, the Chairless chair worked well but there were some red flags about stepping in and out of it. These are now being discussed.
We also demonstrated how the Ironhand, Hunic Suit and Levitate Airframe devices could work for them. They were also impressed with these. They are being considered in other areas at Ford and how they could be utilised in the right department.
CAS ERGO have provided some great options to the manufacturing engineers giving an insight into ergonomic solutions for use in the plant. These have not been considered before.
The feedback so far has been very positive.😃
