3 Superior Stylus Choices for Human Machine Interfaces or HMI’sPrecisely What You Need — Especially NOW

I learn something every day from our award-winning sales consultants. And recently, I received an email from one of them that touched on a topic I felt I should pass along to you. It’s a small thing, literally. But it’s an important one given the way industry is heading in general—and with what we’re all going through right now, in particular.

The item in question? A stylus pen. Our sales rep was sharing information he had obtained in researching stylus pens for a client, thinking it might be helpful for others. Why is this so important?

Stylus Pen Point #1: Precision

First, let’s talk about the state of American (and international) manufacturing. As system automation increases, the need for effective human oversight and monitoring grows, as well. That’s where Human Machine Interface (HMI) comes in.

Touch-screen displays on computer screens, tablets, and often the machines themselves, provide real-time information about system performance. It is there that engineers and operators can adjust those processes to head off problems and maximize system performance through touch-screen.

Fingertips can be imprecise, leading to inaccurate inputs or tedious repetition. And pencil erasers? Please! These top stylus pens are the right solution.

Stylus Pen Point #2: Personal Control

These days you can’t ignore the coronavirus in any discussion; it impacts everything. And as businesses return to full operation, employees are likely to be more aware of and sensitive to interactions with other people and their possessions.

Now I am certainly no doctor and am not offering medical advice here. But it seems to me unlikely that employees will want to share common implements, including stylus pens used at HMI stations. The most efficient and elegant solution for this is to provide every employee (who might need one) a top-quality stylus pen of his or her own.

For the same reason, stylus pens bearing your corporate branding make excellent gifts for clients and prospects.

Three Excellent Stylus Pen Options

Based on our sales consultant’s research, here are three stylus pens that are excellent choices. And each is designed to carry your corporate imprint boldly and tastefully.
