RR576 - Correlation between vibration emission and vibration during real use:
Nibblers and shears
The aims of the work reported here were:
- To assess the BS EN ISO 8662-10 (pneumatic tools) and the BS EN 60745-2-8 (electric tools) emission test for usability and repeatability.
- To assess reproducibility by comparing our results with manufacturers' declared vibration emission values (and verifying in accordance with BS EN 12096).
- To compare vibration emission values with vibration magnitudes measured under real operating conditions.
- To assess vibration emission data as an indicator of vibration hazard.
