MBW’S New & Improved “ERGO-TAMP™” - A Vibration Suppressed Pneumatic Tamper

Friday, June 12, 2015

The overall look of MBW’s ERGO-TAMP is much different; the unit is taller which will allow for more versatility, it is made mostly of aluminum which has dropped the weight down considerably (10.5 lbs. less), while still keeping the hand/arm vibration reduced by as much
as 70%.

MBW has tamed one of the industry’s most disliked and physically abusive compaction tools. Pneumatic Tampers (also known as “Pole Tampers”, “Pogo Sticks” and “Bouncing Betties”) produce hand/arm vibration levels that rank among the highest in the industry. Periodic exposure to excessive vibration is known to be a contributing factor in the development of white finger, carpel tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other chronic ailments.

The ERGO-TAMP reduces hand/arm vibration up to 70%, allowing for some variation as conditions of compaction change. The vibration absorption system easily handles the range of amplitudes typical of pneumatic tampers and is cooled by a constant flow of compressed air through its working mechanism.
