The team from Cummins’ Jamestown Engine Plant demonstrated their tool, The Knight Knuckle, at the 2015 Ergo Cup competition at the Applied Ergonomics Conference. Their new tool is easily installed on a bar fixture, and when used eliminates all torque forces on the operator. The Knuckle allows nearly infinite range of motion, enabling the operator to get access and torque joints in virtually any plane. Watch the video clip to see it in action.
