Construction, maintenance and repair work is carried out on offshore installations, drilling rigs and shipyards. Metal parts have to be welded, derusted, stripped of paint or cleaned. Work on pontoons, deck and hull work, repairs to shafts, rudder systems, propellers and pipelines, occur everywhere. With the right Osborn tool, processes are accelerated and downtime minimised.
A ship on dock cannot earn money. Therefore, maintenance and repair work should be carried out as quickly as possible in the interest of the client. However, it is not only speed that counts, but also thoroughness and reliability. A shipyard is a workplace where many people work simultaneously in a relatively confined space. Welding is going on in one place, derusting or paint stripping in another. Safe working conditions are therefore essential.
Osborn tools are not only developed to provide the longest possible service life and high removal or cleaning rates so that the job can be completed quickly. Our tools are also produced with safe working conditions in mind:
For example, a large number of our tool brushes are certified by TÜV-Süd (safety tested, production monitored) to minimise the risk of injury from erupting wires or flying sparks. We are also a member of oSa - the organisation for the safety of abrasive tools. As an oSa member, we are committed to certified quality management with documented processes - with internal testing facilities and a high level of testing expertise. The three EN standards form the cornerstones of the oSa safety philosophy. We recognise the safety standards (EN 12413, EN 13236, EN 13743) for our products.
If you care for your staff, their wellbeing, happiness and safety, we can offer a variety of appropriate and practical solutions considerung ergonomics, noise, safety.
Our brushes and flap discs with X-LOCK logo for use on X-LOCK angle grinders save time and also contribute to safety:
Selected power brushes and discs are designed, but not limited to work on battery driven power tools. You identify them on the green BATTERY FRIENDLY logo.
