RR591 - Correlation between vibration emission and vibration during real use - Fastener driving tools
The work described here had five aims:
- to assess the standard test defined in ISO 8662-11:1999 for usability and reproducibility;
- to investigate some of the factors that influence the vibration magnitude measured under standard test conditions;
- to compare vibration emission values with vibration magnitudes measured under real operating conditions;
- to investigate alternative parameters for assessing the vibration from single shock tools as defined in ISO/TS 15694 and to consider the relative merits of these parameters compared with the frequency-weighted rms acceleration; and
- to provide HSE with information regarding points 3 and 4 above, so that it can better inform users and suppliers of machines of the worth of vibration emission data in terms of vibration exposure and risk assessment.
