Abstract

The temporary changes in vibrotactile perception during operation of impact power tools were analyzed. The waveforms were applied to an electro-dynamic vibration exciter after reducing the low-frequency roll-off in its electromechanical transfer functions. The result showed that the primary influence on temporary threshold shift was related to the frequency-weighting function used to form acceleration-time history.
