Birmingham, Oh., April 4, 2012 — AirShirz® industrial pneumatic scissors from Bettcher Industries increase worker productivity and efficiency, cutting cleanly even on complex patterns, while reducing muscle fatigue when cutting Kevlar®, carbon fiber, fiberglass and other engineered composite materials.
With its specially designed, long-lasting stainless steel blades, the unique AirShirz tool makes an amazingly clean cut, resulting in less waste and a better-looking finished product. Yet AirShirz requires approximately 90% less muscle activity for cutting Kevlar and other materials, and achieves up to 127% greater worker productivity over manual scissors. Muscle fatigue is dramatically reduced, as well as exposure to risk factors associated with cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) of the hand and forearm.
Lightweight yet powerful, AirShirz feature an automatic spring-return action, so no effort is required to open the blades. Blade speed and position are fully controllable and can be stopped and opened at any time during the process of cutting Kevlar and other materials. Moreover, the safe air-powered operating procedures give the user complete control over the cutting action. A safety latch secures blades in a locked position to prevent damage and enhance safety when not in use. All units use standard 80 to 120 psi shop air.
In addition to cutting Kevlar® and other engineered composite materials, AirShirz® scissors are ideal for cutting, snipping and trimming rubber, wire, metal mesh, vinyl, leather or upholstery, zipper material and other materials.
AirShirz scissors utilize high-strength 440 stainless steel blades, with multiple configurations available. Tests have shown AirShirz® long-lasting blades can cut over one-half mile of Kevlar® material before resharpening is required! Plus, the blades can be removed in seconds using a screwdriver. Replacement and specialty blades are available.
