Air Hammers Air Hammers
Air hammers use highly pressurized air delivered from a compressor to strike the desired object into the intended area. The compressed air is delivered from a portable tank and travels through reinforced tubing to reach the hammer. The air hammers are ideally suited for shaping and smoothing operations. Air hammers strike the object surface many thousand times in a second and therefore are very quick in achieving the desired design objective. There are different types of air hammers that can be bought according to your needs.
