Air Screwdrivers


Air Screwdrivers are powered by compressed air. Inside the screwdriver compressed air is directed over the vanes of the screwdriver motor, rotating the motor and providing the energy needed to power the screwdriver when in use. A gear reduction system adjusts outputs to an appropriate rpm range and torque level for the application. This power is then managed by a clutch.
Types of screwdriver clutches
• Direct drive
• Positive
• Adjustable
• Torque control
How do they work?
Air Screwdrivers are driven by compressed air, supplied by an air compressor. They can also be driven by compressed carbon dioxide (CO2) stored in small cylinders allowing for portability. Most pneumatic tools convert the compressed air to work using a pneumatic motor.
Safety
Proper eye protection must be worn at all times. Use only bits and adapters that are made for power tools. Keep hands away from bits and adapters.
How do you know which type of screwdriver to use?
The application determines the appropriate screwdriver selection. Key factors include the type of surface material, the sizes and types of fasteners being driven. Look for screwdriver specs when making a selection, including motor output torque, free-speed RPM, and clutch type.
