Pneumatic tools for specific solutions is the key to PNEUROP members activities where a balance has to be struck between the needs of the user and the demands of legislation.
Worker protection the environment and ever changing work practices challenge the pneumatic tool manufacturer to provide a 'better solution' and PNEUROP members are addressing these issues. Although vibration and noise are not new issues the imposition of regulatory requirements focus the minds of PNEUROP members to respond with the ever important aspect of applying ergonomic solutions to the challenge of meeting the customers needs.
Lower noise and vibration from pneumatic tools protects the worker but achieving these goals is not always consistent with providing an adequate performance.
The industrial landscape that is the market for compressed air has changed not only in the EU member states but also in the world as a whole. Where there was once heavy industry and mining that in some parts of the EU has given way to light and high technology industry. That brings with it the demand for improved pneumatic tool design and performance.
