Increasing automation and design of a user interface to improve the physical working situation for band saw blades straightening
Conference contribution, 2011

The manual work of straightening band saw blade includes tasks of poor physical ergonomics, since the needs to bend and twist the back and neck to be able to see the horizontal line of the blade. This paper presents a case study of how a physical manual work task successfully can be transferred to be machine operated, by developing a graphical user interface, and thereby improving the physical working conditions of the operators.
