The integration of ergonomics in the product development of Speedglas 9000 and 9100 welding visors was brought about by a network, organised by the Speedglas development team. It includes more than 15 years of sustainable collaboration between the manufacturer, ergonomists, designers, researchers and others, in which ergonomics aspects have been given high priority. The development started in 1994 when the manufacturer of Speedglas welding visors decided to develop a new generation of ergonomically leading welding visors. The aim was to position the product as market leader through better value to their customers. The company developed a high-tech product, giving ergonomic advantages for the welders as well as their employers in terms of improved working environment, safety, usability, productivity and quality.
