Description

In the case of edge grinding of parquet, it is usually necessary to take an unfavourable posture (kneeling, squatting, etc.). If this happens frequently and over longer periods, it can cause permanent damage or even occupational diseases.

This special machine allows parquet and floor layers to carry out such grinding work in an ergonomically favourable posture, i.e. with significantly lower loads.

More information

Standards relevant to order pickers and powered pallet trucks with operator's platform can be found on ErgoNoRA by use of the following search terms:

  • hand*
  • grinder*

The Technical Report ISO/TR 22100-3 describes how ergonomic principles can be applied during the risk reduction process according to ISO 12100 and how ergonomics standards can be applied to machinery. It helps designers take decisions with respect to ergonomics during the machine design process and can also be used when no relevant type C standards are available.

Solution

This special machine allows parquet and floor layers to carry out grinding work in an ergonomically favourable posture, i.e. with significantly lower loads.

Principle of operation

  • The drive unit, and thus a high proportion of the machine weight, is separated from the grinding tool and can be carried ergonomically on the belt.
  • The telescopic rod (with handle on the grinding unit) can be extended and adjusted to the height of the user.
  • The grinding head is easily adjustable and can be adapted to the surface to be sanded.
  • The suction tube integrated into the rod will remove the abrasive dust and reduce exposure to abrasive dust.
