THE GT-NY10S air nipper from Vessel of Japan, represented in Australia by Romheld , incorporates a horizontal slide function with travel adjustable to 3.5mm and incorporates precision "V-Groove" slides for smooth, trouble-free operation, a first in the air nipper market.
Weighing in at just 300 grams, the GT-NY10S can cut plastics up to 3.5mm diameter (ABS resin) and is suitable for direct mounting onto machines, robot grippers, automated handling systems, and special trimming jigs and fixtures.
All air nipper models are supported by a large range of standard blades for differing applications and the built-in slides can present the nippers to the workpiece in both vertical and horizontal directions, plus they can be mounted at virtually any angle.
Removal of sprues, gates and flash from plastic moulded parts can now be fully automated using the Vessel range of light weight, compact air nippers.
Air nippers can be used for cutting, crimping, gripping, breaking, bending and punching of plastic and metal components. Units are available with capacity to cut up to 12mm diameter plastic and 4.5mm diameter in steel wire.
Simple shop air supply and ease of mounting makes the Vessel range of air nippers suited to automated trimming processes in the plastics industry.
For applications where cutting without whitening or cracking is necessary, a "heat cutting" model can be used. Manual versions are also produced.
