  • Japan’s most important construction equipment trade fair CSPI starts today
  • Grammer highlights console carrier mount for better safety and ergonomics
  • Also on display: Product range for aftermarket and OEM customers

Grammer AG, May 24, 2023 – Japan's most important construction equipment trade fair, the Construction & Survey Productivity Improvement Expo (CSPI), is the perfect showcase for Grammer to present innovative seating solutions for aftermarket and OEM customers in this important market from May 24 to 26, 2023. Here, the long-established German company is focusing on an integrated approach to further improve safety and ergonomics in construction vehicles. A highlight at booth G-80 in hall 3 is the MSG97G seat with a multifunction armrest mounted on an adjustable console support. This combination allows the user to set the control panel to individual needs so that vehicle functions can be operated safely, quickly, and ergonomically. In addition, there will be other seats and safety features on display, like Haptic Warning and a seatbelt system.

“All our products are designed to steadily improve safety and ergonomics standards in our sales markets,” says Dr. Andreas Diehl, President Division Commercial Vehicles at Grammer AG. “The seats and technologies we show at the CSPI 2023 are some of our latest innovations for construction machinery, that help to fulfill the safety issue requirement from OEM and end-users. The renowned trade show provides us with the perfect platform for in-depth discussions with our Japanese aftermarket and OEM customers on these important topics.”

Console carrier mount increases ergonomics and safety
Customers will find a wide range of seats at the Grammer booth. For the aftermarket, models from the MSG95, MSG85, MSG65 and S421 series will be on display. Highlights for original equipment include the MSG75 and MSG97G. The latter features a multifunctional armrest mounted on a console and provides a particularly accommodating and ergonomic working environment. The console is adjustable in length and tilt angle to provide optimal access to the controls regardless of the operator's height and shape. This shortens reaction time and increases safety. At the same time, an ergonomic posture is ensured, minimizing strain on the driver, and improving comfort.

ErgoPlus and more safety features
The Grammer ErgoPlus Control Pod carrier also contributes to the topics of ergonomics and safety. At CSPI 2023, it is presented at the Grammer booth using a video demonstration. ErgoPlus offers adaptability that is unique in the world, benefiting machines where the operator spends hours moving hydraulic control levers or joysticks with both hands, such as on excavators. With ErgoPlus, the operator can adjust the armrests six ways – forward/backward, up/down, tilt left/right. An additionally available easy-entry function allows the door-side armrest to be folded up completely. ErgoPlus is based on a modular platform and can thus be used in a wide range of vehicle classes and applications worldwide.

Two other interesting products on display at Grammer's booth are a Haptic Warning system and a seat belt system with an emergency locking retractor, occupant detection and recognition, if the belt is buckled. Haptic Warning is controlled by various vehicle sensors/warning systems and uses two vibration motors integrated into the seat surface. They can be activated individually or together.
