Pneumatic rammer

Striking pneumatic tool used in foundries to compact molds for bench and floor molding (see Ramming); examples are given and shown in Fig. 1 and Table 1.

In order to meet the European Machinery Directive (98/37/EC), harmful vibrations of handheld tools can be reduced by means of additional vibration damping. The vibration damping reduces stresses by up to 50%.

Rammer feet for pneumatic rammers are available in numerous shapes and in solid-rubber or metal design (Fig. 2).
