Tire Change Vibration

Easter is here and it’s soon time to change tires!

Do you feel numbness in your hands after your shift? This could very well be caused by operating harmful vibrating tools without proper protection or precaution.

Keep your hands safe by following these simple steps:

  1. Keep your hands warm
  2. Rotate work tasks – minimize exposure
  3. Use modern power tools
  4. Use the correct Eureka glove

Specifically for impacting tools like those found in a tire chaning worskhop we hihgly recommend the 15-1 Transient Vibration or the 15-4 Flexi Vibration if you also need moderate cut protection.

Hand arm vibration syndrome and vibration induced white finger syndrome are serious and very real. This is especially problematic as the use of incorrect vibration reducing gloves can accelerate the damage exponentially. Eureka’s line of vibration reducing gloves provide an unmatched level of protection when using impacting and/or vibration tools. Our unique glove-to-tool matching concept marks the beginning of a paradigm shift in personal vibration protection by providing you with the correct protective glove to match the frequency range of the tool you are using.

With advanced measuring equipment, a carefully developed range of unique vibration-reducing gloves and an ever-growing database, we at Eureka have developed a deep understanding of the risks of vibrating and impacting tools.

A rocky recovery

Much of the global manufacturing is quickly moving out of the doldrums and gearing up significantly! The recovery is of course most welcome by all but it is not well synchronized and we expect to see some major imbalances. In the past months there has been a massive increases in freight costs from China that is only slowly declining, an appreciating Chinese currency, a Brexit not quite as expected, big increases (40-200%) in nitrile, latex and PU cost and now we see fast price increases in textile materials too (15+%).

So what can we do?

Eureka is ramping up production and keep good a stock level and is following relevant markets to mitigate abrupt changes.

We also strongly recommend our customers to rebuild stock in time and be prepared for price changes so that the entire supply chain is prepared for the better times that we all expect and long for.

Eureka Winter Gloves

Finally a cold winter!

This winter is turning out to be colder than the average!  It brings lots of winter sport opportunities but also hand safety issues. Cold hands are not only uncomfortable but also dramatically reduce hand strength and precision. Cold hands are also  much more prone to vibration injuries.
