Chipping Hammer / Riveter Support

Eliminates shoulder, back & arm injuries – Improves productivity

Problem

Shoulder, back, & arm injuries from overhead chipping using 35 lb chipping guns.

Issue

Hand-held chipping hammer with known shoulder, back & arm injury causation. Injured or aging workers cannot perform overhead chipping.

Solution
Developed a method so workers can hold up heavy chipping hammers for lengthy periods while demolishing or chipping out concrete overhead or on vertical surfaces.

Result

A pneumatic adjustable-height support enabling the use of chipping guns for long periods of time. Completely eliminates injury potential,  reduces vibration to hands, reduces fatigue, and reduces the number of workers to complete overhead chipping tasks.
