06 November 2018 Are you sure the electric screwdriver you use every day is fully compliant?
We often take it for granted that all products available in the European market meet the requirements of EU safety directives, but this is not always the case and hazardous situations are frequently encountered, even in the industrial arena, putting operator safety at risk.
For instance, when we talk about electric tightening systems, it is worth remembering that any such systems put on the European market are required to meet the following directives:
EMC directive: 2014/30/EU relating to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC);
Machinery Directive: 2006/42/EC relating to product safety.
