What do air sanders, air grinders and air tools do?
Air sanders, grinders and other tools harness the power of compressed air to do work. They are lighter than electric or cordless tools, and need less maintenance. They have a high power-to-weight ratio, and last a very long time if cared for properly. They are used in many trades and applications, as wide-ranging as auto repair, roofing, manufacturing, and many more.
How to air tools work?
Air tools work by attaching to a pneumatic hose that is connected on the other end to an air compressor. The compressed air is converted into linear such as a piston, or rotary motion similar to an electric motor.
What are the advantages of air tools?
Air tools don’t use any electricity to operate so there is no risk of sparking or short-circuiting, making them safe to operate flammable materials. They don’t wear down as quickly as electric tools, giving them a longer lifespan. They are cheaper to use in the long-term, making them a smart investment for heavy-use applications. Because they don’t have a motor or batteries, they are small and lightweight, and storage takes up less space.
