Many workplaces make use of air-powered tools and DC electric systems to accomplish a variety of tasks. Air compressors can be used to power nail guns, for spray painting devices, and even auto repairs can be done with the help of pneumatic air tools. However, all too often many air tools can really take a beating due to day-to-day wear and tear on a factory floor. For instance, many air tools,
- Get thrown on the concrete floor or tossed in a pile of tools
- Accidentally get run over by forklifts or trucks
These types of actions sadly can potentially cause the internal mechanisms within the tool to become misaligned and/or broken. While you know the reality of this all too well, how can you help prevent this unnecessary damage from occurring?
Tips to caring for your Tools
Time is tight, especially when your team is trying to make their daily/monthly quotas. To help your team care for their DC electric tools or air tools consider providing:
- Incorporating tool balancers for additional care of the pneumatic air tools
- Identify safe areas/workstations where employees can reset their tools vs. dropping them on the floor
- Add shock-absorbing padding around the work area or resting spot for added tool protection
