Abstract

Proposed is a method for mounting a printing machine control console that addresses the needs of operators in a wheel chair. As shown in Figure 1, printing machine 10 requires operators to be standing and looking straight down at a control console (not shown). In Figure 2, console 12 is tilted to reduce glare from overhead lighting. The configuration of Figure 2 is oriented for operators who spend extended periods of time at machine 10. At Figure 3, console 12 is removable to allow easy access for handicapped operators. Console 12 is connected to machine 10 by way of cable 14.
