Exposing Ergonomics: RWM’s Push/Pull Test

January 9, 2020 in Material Handling

At RWM, we test the ergonomics of our industrial caster products to ensure both productivity and safety are maximized within the work environment. One example can be seen in the Push/Pull test which is used to obtain the actual forces needed to move a cart loaded with various weights. The test simulates real world conditions to collect data for our engineering team, the data collected is then used to determine the proper application for various combinations of wheels and casters. To learn more check out our Push/Pull test video below!
