This VESSEL handheld air nipper set is a complete package for cutting and/or crimping wire, terminals, or trimming component leads on thru-hole PCB’s. The cutting blade can easily be rotated for
left-hand or right-hand operation. Replacing manual-operated nippers with VESSEL’s ergonomic air-powered cutters can help reduce operator fatigue and ergonomic issues.
The light-weight air nipper body is crafted out of durable aluminum, has a spring-return piston design, and comes furnished with a knurled-pattern grip on the housing to prevent slippage, a CE-compliant safety-lever throttle, an 8-foot nylon braided air hose with fittings, and a hook for hanging the tool up when not in use.
The N3BBH90 cutting jaw has a 25° angle, a tapered head for strength, a beveled cut edge, and is made of high quality tool steel with brazed high-speed steel cutting edge inserts for long-life and durability. A mounting pin securely fastens the cutting jaw to the nipper body, which makes it very easy to change out or replace the jaws.
Model GT-N3/SL-BBHcan cut 0.04” max. copper, 0.02” max. soft steel, 0.01” max. piano wire, and 0.08” max. soft plastic at air pressure of 58-73 psi.
