Grab containers and parts containers placed in direct reach of the employee are ideal. The containers should be arranged to allow for a flowing, ascending arch sequence of motions based on the body’s natural movement.
Moreover, two-handed grabbing and joining can cut assembly time by up to 50%. The ergonomic design of the grab containers based on MTM (Method of Time Measurement) serves to effectively pre-separate the parts: the grab ledges have ridges to enable quick and secure part picking.
