Air tools or pneumatic tools are tools powered by compressed air, with pressure that is greater than the pressure of the atmosphere. When compressed air is expanded to a lower pressure, it is able to push a piston, as in a jackhammer; go through a small air turbine to turn a shaft, as in a high-speed dental drill; be expanded through a nozzle to produce a high-speed jet, as in a paint sprayer, etc.
Major types of air tools include:
- Chipping hammers
- Riveting guns
- Rock drills
- Paint sprayers
- Sandblasting machines
- Clay and trench diggers
- Sand rammers
- Paving breakers
Air tools are commonly cheaper and safer to run and maintain than power tools because its working mechanism is simpler than complicated electric motors. Light to heavy production industries such as mechanics, large production workshops, factories, assembly lines, etc., tend to use air tools for its massive power output.
