In 2009 Consolidated Power Tools introduced the vibration testing service.
This was driven by both our customers who were looking for a ‘single source solution’ for their onsite testing service, and by the ever changing vibration regulations. In a relatively short space of time we have gained a wide and varied customer base, as we are able to adapt to, and facilitate a wide range of customer requirements.
This is something we pride ourselves on, and is what has made us one of the most reputable vibration testing
companies in operation.
We offer a comprehensive range of mechanical and pneumatic tool equipment from some of the worlds leading manufacturers, with full technical sales and back up provided by highly experienced staff.
Tools can either be tested on site whilst in use by the operator (this is recommended) or in a workplace on simulated test rigs. For this we use a wide range of different tensile steels for the Grinders, Cutters, Die Grinders, and Drills etc.

The Curotec vibration management systems allows the employer to collect accurate data in relation to vibration exposure for each member of their workforce, on a daily basis. Once this data is quantified it can be extrapolated and used to predict trends of use, identify the need for tool maintenance and employ preventative actions to be taken in order to protect their employees more effectively.
Curo is a simple, effective piece of PPE for Vibration. Each personalised Curo will record its operators trigger time exposure to vibration. The traffic light system advises the user of their exposure threshold, when the red light illuminates it warns the operator that they have reached their maximum daily vibration limit.
The Curo Plus offers a more comprehensive system with all the information of the Curo, in addition to a meticulous analysis of tool usage and points per tool, per day. The RFID technology used by the Curo Plus also allows for additional functionality such as the ability to store asset/serial numbers and communicate the tool make and model into the data download.
The Curo has been developed as part of an employees PPE, able to quantify the daily exposure of and risk to each member of the workforce. This enables preventative action to be taken for those at risk and pre-existing HAVS sufferers to continue work in a controlled environment where exposure levels are safely reduced, preventing further deterioration.

Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
What is Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome?
Vibration can be transmitted into your hands and arms when you use hand-held powered work equipment. Too much exposure can cause HAVS and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Identifying signs and symptoms at an early stage is important. It will allow you, as the employer, to take action to prevent the health effects from becoming serious for your employee. The symptoms include any combination of:
• Tingling and numbness in the fingers
• Not being able to feel things properly
• Loss of strength in the hands
• Fingers going white (blanching) and becoming red and painful on recovery
