However, in the case of small rotary angle sanders and polishers, where the motor housing is intended to be held, the housing shall be treated as iwo handle. If there is any doubt about the extent of the effect of the transducer’s mass then the following test should be used: Attention is particularly drawn to the following: Advantages Disadvantages Good frequency response Not affected by surface temperature Contact surface shall be flat Cannot be used on hand tools, where it might affect the electrical or pneumatic safety of the power tool Figure D.

Less than 1 hour. In this case measurements may be made during simulated work operations which artificially arrange longer uninterrupted exposures with work conditions as near to normal as possible.

An Introduction to Hand/Arm Vibration

534-92 shall be carried out on the handle, where the operator normally holds the fastener driving tool and from which the power too is triggered. Unfortunately, continuous exposure to mechanical vibration can lead to serious injury.

However, simple instrumentation may not be able to show errors associated with vibration measurement. Data recording can be achieved either using analogue or digital recording techniques.

The power tool is operated continuously for long periods and the hand is always in contact with the power tool or hand-held workpiece during use. An intermittent loss of signal connection can show up as DC-offsets, between which the signal appears normal.

Vibration 5349- may be made using simple, single-unit vibration meters, featuring built-in frequency weightings and integrating facilities. For difficult surfaces, individually moulded adaptors may be suitable. For straight control-handle power tools, the transducer shall be located so as to measure the acceleration on the power tool surface in a tangential direction relative to the.

Where the user has to select the input range of the instrument, the appropriate measurement range can be determined by performing trial measurements.


From September to October,measurement and spectral analysis were performed for 16 typical hand tools including percussion drill, pneumatic wrench, grinding machine, internal grinder, and arc welding machine in 6 workplaces for automobile casting and assembly according to ISO Mechanical vibration-Measurement and evaluation of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibration-part 1: Where very short duration measurements are unavoidable e.

To obtain the best signal-to-noise performance, select the lowest possible measurement range without overloads. Where sequential measurements are made, it is important to ensure that all operating conditions remain the same for the three measurements of x- y- and z-axis vibration.

International Standard Title ISO all parts Hand-held portable power tools — Measurement of vibrations at the handle For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS 2: In practice, the resonance of 53492- mounted accelerometer on a hand-held workpiece or power tool will be substantially lower than the fundamental 3549-2 frequency see 6.

An Introduction to Hand/Arm Vibration – National Instruments

In addition to vibration magnitude information, the evaluation of daily vibration exposure requires an evaluation of the duration of exposure to the operation per day.

It is not advisable to mount a three-directional iao system onto one mechanical filter. For Sanders and polishers with tWo handles, measurements shall be made on both handles. If the placing of the trigger makes this impossible, then the transducer shall be placed as close as possible to this position.

BS EN ISO 5349-2:2001+A1:2015

Where the vibration has been averaged over a complete work cycle, the daily exposure time is simply the duration of the work cycle multiplied by the number of cycles per day.

You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome is a general term used to broadly describe the physical damage to the hands, fingers, and related structures resulting from chronic exposure to excessive vibration.

The locations shown in Table A. In the case of capacitively and inductively coupled interference signals, the effect of inevitable electromagnetic fields can be reduced by the following means: The effect on the human body is dependent upon the magnitude of vibration, the frequency content, and the duration of exposure.

The grinder is therefore operated for a total of s in each work cycle i. For the brush-saw operation, the work is continuous for 2 h. This period may include variations in the vibration magnitude and may even include periods when there is no exposure.


For each casting the operator grinds around the circumference of the casting and then works on the upper and lower faces.

In studying the tool, designers should consider the following: The total measuring time i. For piezoelectric accelerometers, which use signal conditioning amplifiers with high impedance inputs, the loss of connection in the cable earth screening can cause extreme pickup of electrical mains frequencies.

Vascular damage to the blood vessels, i.

However, it is important to ensure that the information is compatible with 53349-2 information required for an evaluation of daily vibration exposure. The greater the mass fitted to the surface, the greater the effect. The estimated vibration total value will therefore be 1,7 times the measured single-axis vibration value.

However, if the machine is designed to be held by a knob-handle on the housing, rather than by the housing itself, measurements shall be made on the knob-handle. Annex D gives details of some mounting methods. The first of these will be a measurement to determine how long an operator is exposed to vibration, and from what source, during a specified period.

The positions of the transducers shall preferably be on the underside of the handles, and shall be symmetrically mounted with respect to the position on the handle where the operator normally places 534-2 hand 60 mm from the handle end.

Faulty signal connections can show up simply as the loss of signal, in which case sio appears that there Is no vibration. The daily exposure duration iwo vibration of electric wrench, pneumatic wrench, shearing machine, percussion drill, and internal grinder 53349-2 about minutes, while that of plasma cutting machine, angle grinder, grinding machine, bench grinder, and arc welding machine was about minutes.

Accelerometers should be fitted with their direction of minimum transverse sensitivity aligned to the percussive axis to minimize any effect due to rotational motion.
