Brief Introduction of Air Hammer:
Air Hammer, which is used to cut or break metal objects and to carve in stone, is a pneumatic hand tool. This hand tool is widely used in constructions, renovations, in the garage, to flatten or cut metals like copper, aluminum and other metals like 10-gauge structural steel, automotive applications, etc.
Air Hammer makes your work far easier. Unique equipment for home use as well, as they are lightweight and easy to carry, easy to change attachments.
The unique feature of these Air Hammers is, that the compressed air inside the circuits of the air tubes pumps out from the compressor when the handle is pressed, to finish the drilling work in a matter of seconds. In short, you can get more work done with less effort. Some have built-in power regulators. Another name for Air Hammer is Air Chisel.
Air Hammer Bits:
The Air Hammer comes with air hammer bits. The set includes three air hammer bits and one spring These bits are suitable for any hammering operations. These Hammer bits are made out of alloy steel.
Different types of Air Hammer Bits:
Smoothing Hammer with its flat hammer end helps to smoothen or flatten irregular metal surfaces.
For cutting and trimming sheet metal, sheet metal trimmer and V-Shaped Chisel with separated pong end is used.
Ball joint separators are used to separate ball joints.
To break the joints, nuts, sockets and suspension bolts Straight Punch Chisel, Bolt Breaker Bits and Drift Sets, with a standard round bit with the flat cylindrical end, is used.
So, depending upon the job you are assigned to, you can change the bits accordingly. For better use of the bits, they have to be equipped in the machine and has to be connected with the air compressor. These air hammer bits are made of high-quality alloy steel, in other words, heavy duty high hardness steel.
Percussion Air Hammers:
The other set of Percussion Air Hammers are used for shallow air drilling operations like monitoring wells, drilling water wells, mining boreholes, deep oil, and natural gas wells, have a distinct range of cutter bits. It is a very effective machine in drilling deep bore wells. The five-air hammer bit cutting face designs are as follows:
- Air Hammer with flat face bit.
- Air Hammer with drop center bit face.
- Air Hammer with concave bit face.
- Air Hammer with double gauge bit face.
- Air Hammer with step gauge bit face.
These five-bit variety drilling cutting face designs are relevant for different drilling works from non-coarse, soft rock formations to highly coarse, very hard rock formations. These bits are though uniform in design, the shafts are different for each air hammer manufacturer. For gas drilling operations, rotating tri-cone or single cone drill bits are used.
Air Hammers are available in different models, brands and sizes.
