If your operators work with hand-held electric or pneumatic tools, the last thing you want is for their health to suffer. However light the tool, when an operator performs repetitive tasks daily, often with incorrect posture, the tool seems to grow heavier by the hour. Add torque reaction from the tightening process, and the result can be hand-arm-shoulder disorders that may lead to injury and even premature retirement.
The unique range of Torque Arms from Atlas Copco offer a simple, practical and cost effective way to improve your assembly stations whilst maintaining operator well-being and increasing productivity!
Let an Atlas Copco Torque Arm take the Strain…
Torque Arm & Balancer system – makes the tool feel virtually weightless. This ergonomically designed torque arm allows smooth, comfortable movement of the tool. It takes the weight off the arm and shoulder, absorbs the torque reaction generated by the tool, and gives a wide working area without stretching.
Easy to Install – Despite the wide work area covered, the torque arm occupies very little space and will not get in the way and disrupt the workflow. It can be wall mounted or table mounted using the base-plate stand.
Facts you should know …
Operating a tool with a bent or angled wrist can lead to inflammation of the tendons in the arms (CTS – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).
Stretching of muscles over prolonged periods leads to the risk of tiredness, pain and in the end, injury.
Repetitive movements can result in serious work injuries (RMI – Repetitive Motion Injury).
Blood circulation is negatively affected by static load.
Work related musculoskeletal disorders are the most common cause of premature retirement.
Basic guidelines for when a torque arm should be used:
|Pneumatic||≥ 3 Nm||≥ 6 Nm||≥ 50 Nm|
|Electric||≥ 4 Nm||≥ 10 Nm||≥ 50 Nm|
