Airshirz® Pneumatic Scissors Increase Productivity and Reduce Risks


Birmingham, Oh., June 27, 2002- Airshirz® pneumatic scissors from
Bettcher Industries increase worker productivity while reducing muscle fatigue. Lightweight yet powerful, Airshirz provides clean, accurate cutting, snipping and trimming of aluminum and other metals, fiberglass, cardboard and bulk paper, rubber, fabrics, and many other materials, 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: a two-finger grip for smaller hands, and a larger finger loop style. 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 accidents or 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.

With Airshirz, major improvements in reducing muscle fatigue and worker exposure to a number of significant risk factors associated with cumulative trauma disorders have been achieved. Plant managers who are looking for improved employee welfare and lower turnover - along with increased worker productivity - will find Airshirz to be a strong new ally.

Airshirz scissors from Bettcher utilize stainless steel blades, with multiple configurations available. Blades can be removed in seconds and sharpened using conventional sharpening equipment.

Established in 1944, Bettcher Industries is a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative and precision cutting tools for industrial and food processing operations.
