Reducing the difficulty of work on construction sites.
Beyond specific risk factors such as vibrations, debris, and operator fatigue, a good HMI must help tackle tough tasks with ease while maximizing productivity. Moreover, it is essential to have ergonomically positioned controls to activate machine functions in a safe and comfortable way.
This need for ergonomic solutions can be seen in the development of shortcut buttons located on the joystick, start-and-stop pushbuttons for the engine, rocker switches to help prevent accidents, or thumbsticks to navigate quickly on touchscreen monitors.
To help the industry’s leading manufacturers, APEM has developed strong sector expertise and currently offers one of the most advanced ranges of HMI, featuring pushbuttons, toggle switches, indicators, control panels, and joysticks.
Typical applications include construction machinery (excavators, skid-steer loaders, crawler loaders, wheeled loaders, backhoe loaders, trenchers…), road construction machinery (asphalt pavers, compactors…), mining equipment (trucks, bulldozers, pile drivers, mining shovels, scalers, longwall shearers…), snow groomers and snowplows…
