TENNSMITH Model 52A Air Shear
Tennsmith’s power shears combine all of the features of our foot shears with the advantage and convenience of air or hydraulic operation. Tennsmith power shears are a productive addition to any shop. The air shears utilize heavy-duty, tie rod-type pneumatic cylinders, which provide up to 40 strokes per minute in capacity materials.
A foot operated air valve control, pressure regulator, air gauge, oiler/condenser cups and neoprene, padded hold down feet are standard features. We recommend a maximum air supply of 75 psi for operating these shears at rated capacity. Where air supply pressures exceed 75 psi, an in-line regulator is helpful to provide pressure control.
Other electrical safety features include a low voltage on/off switch; low voltage, shrouded, electric foot switch, step down transformer with low voltage circuit fuse; fully enclosed electrical box; and insulated reinforced conduit for all wiring. Models 36A and 52A are ideal ways to enhance shearing productivity with minimal investment.
All shears are standard, equipped with high carbon/high chromium (HCHC) blades.
