Support for Vibration Centre (28/11/05)
Mr Andrew Bowden at Makita and Mr Albert Hodder recently confirmed that they are the latest major manufacturers to join the HAVTEC centre. Testing of Makita products will commence in December 2005 (and is expected to continue into the New Year) and testing of Heller's products will commence in January 2006. This is great news and further evidence of the support from industry for high quality independent vibration testing information which will be free of charge for all to access.
Given the huge support from all the major manufacturers, it is envisaged that test centre data will start to be loaded into the OPERC database and be freely available via the website from January onwards. However, both members and non-members can register their interest in accessing the database now.
