MBW introduces the "Ergo-Tamp" - a vibration suppressed Pneumatic Tamper
SEPTEMBER, 2007 - MBW Inc. claims to have tamed one of the industry's most disliked and physically abusive compaction tools. Air Tampers (also called "Pole Tamper", "Pogo Stick", "Bouncing Betty") produce hand/arm vibration levels that rank among the highest in the construction industry. Periodic exposure to excessive vibration is known to be a contributing factor in the development of white finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other chronic ailments. MBW's Ergo-Tamp removes approximately 70% of the vibration at the hand-held end of the tool. By rendering the tool tolerable from an operational point-of-view, MBW contends that users will be far less prone to terminate compaction activity before achieving adequate soil compaction. Properly compacted soil results in a lower incidence of pavement failure. Reduced hand/arm vibration results in less wear and tear on the personnel who get the job done.
MBW will also offer a Vibration Suppression Kit that can be affixed to any brand of pneumatic tamper already in the field.
