Removal of sprues, gates and flash from plastic molded parts can be performed manually or 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.
Vessel air nippers are available with capacity to cut up to 12mm diameter plastic and 4.5mm in steel wire. All air nippers are supported by a large range of standard blades for differing applications and models with 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.
Simple shop air supply and ease of mounting makes the Vessel range of air nippers ideally suited to automated trimming and de-gating processes in the plastics industry. For applications where cutting without whitening or cracking is necessary, a 'heat cutting' model can be used.
Air nippers can be mounted to robot and unloader grippers to automatically remove sprues during the handling process.
Manual units can be supplied with optional safety throttle lever and a powerful intensifier is available for cases where extra cutting force is needed.
