ISO 11148-10:2011 specifies safety requirements for hand-held non‑electric compression power tools (hereinafter "compression power tools") for squeeze riveting, punching, shaping, pressing and cutting of metal, plastics or 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.
ISO 11148-10:2011 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 and alligator jaw compression riveters.
ISO 11148-10:2011 is not applicable to special requirements and modifications on compression power tools for the purpose of mounting them in fixtures.
ISO 11148-10:2011 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.
