Hyundai has created an exoskeleton for assembly carsSeptember 6, 2019
Work at the automobile plant and at service stations, of course, is not easy.
The proportion of manual labor is still high, so Hyundai has developed a new exoskeleton. Working with your arms held high above your head is tiring, but the VEX exoskeleton can reduce fatigue and increase productivity. Almost the entire filling of the car is mounted under the body. If you work every day in a standing position, it is uncomfortable and tiring. That is why the company has developed a new Vest exoskeleton. It imitates the movement of human joints and combines several turning points with multilink muscle assistance, but does not even need a battery.
VEX is designed to be worn for a long period of time, it is quite lightweight, its weight is only 2.5 kg. It is worn as a backpack with shoulder straps, buckles on the chest and waist. It is easy to adjust to fit different types of bodies. The vest can improve ergonomics, reduce fatigue and the likelihood of injury. Hyundai has successfully tested VEX at its two plants in the United States and is now considering introducing it at other plants. It will be put up for sale for other industrial entities.
Hyundai says VEX will cost 30% less than similar products from competitors, which usually cost around $ 5,000. Hyundai is also developing a chair called the CEX brushless exoskeleton. This is another robot weighing only 1.6 kg. It is aimed at reducing fatigue by reducing the activity of the muscles of the back and lower body by 40%. The creators hope that VEX will be popular around the world.
