From an operator standpoint air-blasting is a physically demanding operation. Manual blast equipment is strenuous to use. Typically the operator is standing for long periods of time and the blast process requires repetitive motions to ensure a proper finish. These factors brought about the design of the Ergo Cabinet. Why not have the operator sit down versus stand to facilitate task performance, minimize fatigue and repetitive stress injury by fitting equipment to the body size, strength and range of motion of the user.
Since the Ergo-Blast cabinets are designed for sit-down blasting, these ergonomic cabinets include a padded armrest, an elevated foot rest for treadle control, top-entry piping for less arm stress, a sound dampener to reduce noise and a front mounted pressure regulator - all aimed at improving operator comfort and performance during long, repetitive blast cycles.
