Cracking the Ergonomics Code

How your spray gun could be effecting your bottom line

Importance of Gun Ergonomics

Most experts agree that atomization and transfer efficiency are the most important spray gun features, but what about ergonomics?

Many painters suffer costly muscle strain or repetitive-motion injuries that could be prevented with proper gun ergonomics.

Did you know? According to OSHA, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can easily cost companies over $30,000 in workers comp claims per year. 

Poor gun ergonomics not only cost companies money in claims, but also compromise performance and quality. To remedy this, many customers are focusing on operator comfort by upgrading their electrostatic spray guns.

When searching for your next spray gun, remember to look for to smaller, lighter guns with less trigger pull. Graco's Pro Xp is one option for electrostatics, but there are  many to choose from in the market depending on your application, so make sure you are considering more than just transfer efficiency and atomization when you buy. Your painters will thank you.
