What are power tools testing?

power tools testingPower tools testing refers to the process of evaluating power tools to ensure their safety, reliability, efficiency, and regulatory compliance. This evaluation entails mechanical products testing and electrical products testing, which examine the tools' functionality under various conditions and stresses.

For smart, digitised tools, power tools testing may also include EMC testing, ensuring the device can operate without being disturbed by, or causing, electromagnetic interference.


Why manufacturers need power tools testing?

power tools testingDue to their high power output, complex mechanics, and exposure to electrical currents, power tools carry inherent risks. Power tools testing and certification ensure these products meet strict safety standards, reducing the likelihood of mishaps and injuries during use.
