Atlas Copco: vibration, energy levels tested

Atlas Copco’s performance levels in hand-arm vibration and impact energy have exceeded their previous estimations, says study.

Atlas Copco’s test results show low body-vibrations for operators

Atlas Copco’s performance levels in hand-arm vibration and impact energy have exceeded their previous estimations, a recent comparative study under the supervision of TÜV Nord found.

Three tests were undertaken as part of the study on the comfort and safety of handheld breakers – three-axis vibration measurement on Dynaload absorber, a real work three-axis vibration test on concrete performed by three operators and a real impact energy measurement on Dynaload.

Tests have shown that the hand-arm vibration value of the Cobra Pro is 3.8 on Dynaload and 5.8 in real work on concrete. Combined with increased comfort and safety of the operator, the Cobra Pro demonstrated a delivery of 61 joules of impact energy and 1470 W output in the chisel.

“[These results] demonstrate Atlas Copco’s continuous drive for innovation and product improvement that results in higher productivity for its customers and increased comfort and safety for operators. Combined with low emission and noise level, the Cobra Pro petrol-driven breaker is the ideal tool for breaking, cutting, digging, driving and tamping,” said a spokesperson.
