BS EN ISO 11148-10:2011

Hand-held non-electric power tools. Safety requirements. Compression power tools

Status : Current   Published : January 2012
Conformity to regulation : Designated



This part of ISO 11148 specifies safety requirements for hand-held non-electric compression power tools (hereinafter “compression power tools”) intended for squeeze riveting, punching, shaping, pressing and cutting of metal, plastics and other materials. The compression power tools can be powered by compressed air or hydraulic fluid and are intended to be used by one operator and supported by the operator's hand or hands, with or without a suspension, e.g. a balancer.


At the time of publication, no compression power tools driven by internal combustion engines are known. Once these are identified, it is intended to amend this part of ISO 11148 to include such power tools.

This part of ISO 11148 is applicable to:

  • crimping tools;

  • collar splitters;

  • power tools for metal forming (edge formers, folding tools, swagers);

  • nut splitter heads;

  • presses;

  • punches;

  • squeeze riveters;

  • cutting power tools with parallel knives;

  • alligator jaw compression riveters.


For examples of compression power tools, see Annex B.

This part of ISO 11148 is not applicable to special requirements and modifications of compression power tools for the purpose of mounting them in a fixture.

This part of ISO 11148 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to compression power tools when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, with the exception of the use of compression power tools in potentially explosive atmospheres.


EN 13463‑1 gives requirements for non-electrical equipment for potentially explosive atmospheres.
