IRWIN Industrial Tools has released Irwin aviation snips for sheet metal cutting applications.
They are constructed with a cold-form manufacturing process that increases blade strength by 44% and requires 25% less cutting force. The over-moulded ProTouch grips will not twist, tear or slip off. They are injection-molded over 12-gauge steel spines for increased rigidity and less flexing. Each pair of aviation snips includes a long-life spring for greater durability and reliability.
A protective latch allows one-handed opening and closing. The design reduces the hand span by 10%. The line is offered with a lifetime guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship. They are available in straight cut, left cut, right cut and bulldog models.
