How to save money with the right abrasive
How to save money with the right abrasive
How to choose abrasives for your grinder operation is not easy. Abrasive products have gone through rapid development during the last decade that has increased the number of possible solutions for your operation. There is a clear link between the abrasive and the productivity, ergonomics and quality - a link that is commonly overseen. Read more in this white paper to learn how you can save money, increase your productivity and improve the ergonomics of your operators.

The power of making the right choice
The power of making the right choice
When selecting a grinder the first decision you have to make is if you want to go with a pneumatic grinder or electric grinder. Here, obviously, the infrastructure can set limitations but the choice is often made from historical decisions. How to use the grinder is straight forward and will give results no matter what you chose - but the decision between pneumatic vs electric grinder will have a huge effect on the power output and the productivity. The tool with the highest measured power output has the highest productivity.

Selecting the right chipping hammer
Percussive tools such as chipping hammers and scalers are widely used for cutting, demolition, fettling, cleaning, etc. The key to high productivity is to understand what tool specifications actually can do for the performance of the tool – and how they can be translated to optimize your process.

Slug wrenches - yes or no?
Slug wrench
Slug wrenches - yes or no?
Do slug wrenches really ensure that the tightening is done correctly? Using a slug wrench might seem like a convenient method for high torque bolting applications – but it is not. The accuracy is not close to what standards, regulations or installation guides require and the risk of faulty joints and personal injuries are imminent. When including the costs for leakage, rework and unplanned shutdowns due to bad torqueing, the cheap slug wrench becomes very expensive in the long run. Learn here how using direct driven pneumatic, electric or hydraulic nutrunners improves the quality of the joints, thus reducing the risk of joint failures and the cost related to that.

How we measure our hand-arm vibration values
Everyone, from manufacturer to operator, is responsible to reduce the hand-arm vibration exposure. Manufacturers supplying power tools within the European Union are responsible for measuring and declaring the vibration emission value for every machine model.

Fight vibration injuries and improve your productivity
Hand-arm vibration injuries (HAVS) are very common in the industry today and not only are the injuries expensive on a corporate level: they also affect the daily life of the injured person. By selecting tools with low vibration emission and good performance together with high quality consumables it’s possible to prevent vibration injuries at the workplace.
