Airshirz Pneumatic Scissors Increase Worker Productivity and Comfort

Birmingham, Oh., March 9, 2005- Airshirz® industrial pneumatic scissors from Bettcher Industries increase worker productivity while reducing muscle fatigue in wire cutting operations. Lightweight yet powerful, Airshirz provides clean, accurate cutting, snipping and trimming, resulting in less waste and a better-looking finished product. Yet Airshirz requires approximately 90% less muscle activity to operate, and achieves up to 127% greater worker productivity over manual scissors.

Airshirz scissors are now available in two grip designs. Choose from either a two-finger grip or a larger loop style, depending on your shop and operator requirements. Both designs feature an automatic spring-return action so no effort is required to open the blades. Moreover, the pneumatic design gives the user complete control over the cutting action, thereby guarding against an inadvertent cut and promoting safe operation. A safety latch secures blades in a locked position to enhance safety and prevent damage when not in use. All units use standard 80 to 120 psi plant air.

In addition to cutting metal mesh, Airshirz scissors are ideal for cutting, snipping and trimming fiberglass, metal mesh, rubber, vinyl, leather or upholstery, as well as zipper material.

Airshirz scissors from Bettcher utilize stainless steel blades, with multiple configurations available to optimize the effectiveness of your cutting application. Blades can be removed in seconds and sharpened using conventional sharpening equipment.
