MT-HID is completely sealed, it also helps cut
down bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens that
can make their way into cleanrooms.
Improving cleanroom employees’ productivity
Tracking up to five fingers at a time, the technology can centralize all controls and commands
into one device versus having a separate knob,
dial, switch, and keypad located all on the same
piece of equipment. If the controls are being used
for image display, rotation, or manipulation, the
user can toggle between 2D and 3D viewing.
Instead of featuring separate controls for
navigation, image manipulation, and menu
selection, for example, all commands can be
integrated into one easy-to-use device that also
improves productivity and efficiency for the
designers and researchers inside the cleanroom.
This cuts down on manufacturing costs, mak-
ing the equipment more affordable to produce
(which should equal cost savings when purchas-
ing the equipment). It also allows for a simpli-
fied design of equipment control panels, which
means that the equipment’s control panel can be
reduced in size.
Centralized control promotes ergonomics
as well. By consolidating the controls and plac-
ing them all together within easy reach, the
equipment users can execute typical commands
without needing to remove their eyes from the
equipment screen. As a result of this, along with
the use of instinctive gestures, this touch tech-
nology also enhances worker productivity.
This promising new technology can increase
equipment functionality, reduce particle contamination, and enhance employee productivity
in your cleanroom environment.
