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 industry leaders adapt their applications to this reality, APEM has developed strong know-how and currently offers one of the latest ranges of Human-Machine Interfaces, 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…
