Power tools and other heavy equipment often dominate a workshop. While they are some of the most reliable components, there are other options available.
Air-powered tools provide a number of benefits for any workshop, and here are the reasons why.
Air-powered tools use compressed air to operate, unlike conventional equipment that are powered by electricity and batteries. This makes the tool very energy efficient, sparing workshop owners from spending extra on batteries and other voltage supply.
As they don’t have huge power sources, they are considerably lighter than their electrical counterparts, making them more portable and easy to use. It also means that your workshop is free from electric cables, which can be both an annoyance and trip hazard.
Air tools are made up of fewer working parts, so there’s a lesser chance of mishaps. Those who are using the tool for the first time can quickly learn how to best operate the tool. With fewer working parts, it makes the tool easy to assemble and maintain, should anything go wrong.
Electric tools can burn out if stalled over a long period of time. In addition, the back Electro Magnetic Force drops to zero when this happens, overheating the motor. Air tools don’t have this problem, without electrical motors, they are spark-less, which makes them ideal for use in hazardous environments.
Air compressors, hoses and filters are some of the most important equipment for a workshop to create an efficient air-powered system. Once you have these, you can incorporate other equipment including drills, sanders, wrenches, and many others.
