Website Hosts Vibratory Hammer Technology Information
A new website dedicated to vibratory hammers was released July 17, focusing on information surrounding this special procurement tool. A vibratory hammer is a tool used to drive sheet piles and tubes into the soil. The Website overviews more than 400 different hammer types from a variety of manufacturers worldwide, locates vibratory hammer dealers and features news related to this tool.
Vibratory hammers, or vibro hammers, are used to drive sheet piles, pipes, or other elements into the soil by vertical vibrations. These vibrations put adjacent soil particles into motion, loosening the soil so that tools, equipment, and other objects may be inserted into the soil.
The website allows manufacturers to list their products, dealers and locations, and offers them the ability to link to web shops, host manual downloads, part lists, picture books, and more. Posting general information is free to manufacturers.
In the future, VibratoryHammers.org will allow manufacturers to post a marketplace, receive quotation requests and host virtual exhibitions and shows. The website boasts that it "brings transparency in a global market with hardly any available information."
The website search engine allows buyers to filter their product searches according to category (crane suspended, excavator mounted, leader guided), frequency (fixed or variable), power type (hydraulic or electric), and manufacturer. It also allows buyers to change from metric to imperial systems to service global consumers.
Lastly, the website features a section focusing on hammer technology, that educates manufacturers and buyers about hammer technology, environmental concerns and updates, geology, and more. The site will feature daily stories concerning developments regarding vibratory hammers.
