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.

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
