Legroom for improved accessibility

Problems

When work is performed inside machine tools, the machine geometry often necessitates the assumption of unfavourable body postures. In order to clamp the components in place, the worker must often lean in a long way, and when changing tools manually, possibly also stretch and work overhead. Minor modifications to the machine geometry may be effective here in reducing unfavourable body postures (see also EN 1005-4).

Stress category

Solution

The bottom of the DMG DMU 125 machine housing is recessed. This provides the operator with greater legroom, and he or she can adopt a position closer to the machine. Unfavourable body postures, such as leaning in a long way, can thus be reduced (see EN 12417:2009, Table 2; EN 13128:2009, Table 5; EN ISO 14738:2009, Section 9.1).
