Analysis of human working postures designated for ergonomics can be performed by traditional measuring instruments – pen and paper. However, this method allows within a given period of time only a very limited count of ergonomic analyses with consideration of human error. Larger companies (especially automotive) have made considerable financial investments in Motion Capture (MoCap) devices in recen (…)

TOOLS FOR VISUALIZATION OF ENERGY FLOWS IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF MACHINE-TOOLS

Jan Augste, Michal Holub, Radek Knoflicek, Tomas Novotny
Keywords: Simulation | energy flows | visualization | machine-tools | Ecodesign

The article deals with the development of tools supporting a higher degree of visualization in order to assess the workload of electrical appliances installed in machine-tools. A higher degree of visualization means to forward the interpretation of the results from commonly used tables, graphs, and also 2D visualization, to 3D visualization. This enables us a considerably easier orientation in the (…)
