MARINETTE—Waupaca Foundry is using new ergonomic technology at its plant—and it fits like a glove.

The foundry at 805 Ogden St., Marinette, is testing the Ironhand glove, a robotic exoskeleton, to improve grip strength and reduce effort and strain on employees. The testing is part of a six-month trial. After that, Waupaca will introduce them at all locations.
