How It Works: A Lean, Mean Nail Gun
Pneumatic nailers can slash the time it takes to fasten everything from window trim to roof rafters. The basic guts of the tool haven’t changed since the 1960s: Compressed air pushes a piston that drives a rod, forcing nails deep into wood, before the tool resets for the next nail. Now Bosch has figured out how to make an Air Nailer
that is 20 percent smaller while boosting power by 10 percent, so it can drive nails into hardwoods like walnut with less pressure than other guns. Instead of reserving some of the compressed air for resetting the piston, which weakens the strike, the tool uses all of the air’s energy to drive the nails. A vent exhausts the air, and a second burst returns the piston. Since our Coil Nailer
can operate at lower pressure, it reduces wear on compressors and components, while still hammering home 1- to 2.5-inch-long nails all day.
Design Highlights on the Nail Gun
Self-Cleaning Filter: The pressurized air leaving the tool cleans this filter, which captures debris like sawdust and dirt, preventing it from clogging the cylinder.
Fitting: A connection to an air hose allows pressurized air to flow from an electric air compressor into the Framing Nailer
, where it’s moved by valves controlled by the trigger.
Bump Firing: Like most nailers, we also have a semiautomatic mode called bump firing, in which you can hold down the trigger and fire a nail just by pressing the nose to the wood. A toggle switch on the trigger changes the position of a metal lever inside so that it touches the trigger-valve pin. At that point, depressing the nose pushes the metal lever into the pin, activating the trigger.
Depth of Drive: A dial lets you adjust the distance between the nose and the board, which changes how deeply the gun drives the nail.
s are equipment that can spray paint or varnish using air pressure to apply it or spread it on a surface. These HVLP Spray Gun HVLP
can be used to paint on any type of surface or substrate, be it metal, wood, stone, clay (ceramics), and porcelain, plastic, glass, and textile. For this reason, spray guns are fundamental tools for any type of manufacturing industry and repainting services, since they allow industrial finishing of any of their products economically and efficiently.
Spray guns were invented in 1888 by Dr. Allen DeVilbiss in the United States. Then, his son continued to improve the invention, producing the first Touch Up Spray Gun
to use compressed air. The development of spray guns technology has continued to this day.
A pressure pot (AKA Paint Tank
) is a precision painting tool and is typically used for customizing and fine tuning paint spray to meet desired texture results or job specs. The Automatic Paint Pressure Tank
holds the paint and the desired spray is achieved by balancing liquid pressure via a liquid regulator, with air pressure via an air regulator. Both regulators sit atop the tank lid. Set fluid pressure, then set air pressure. Increasing air pressure and/or lowering fluid pressure will result in smaller particles of paint for a finer spray. Products differ by capacity, number of regulators and tank composition, among other considerations.
An Airless Sprayer
, or a spray paint machine, simplifies painting in two ways: First, if you want to speed up a job that requires several gallons of paint, you can apply it twice as fast as with a roller or brush. And second, if you want a glass-smooth finish on woodwork or doors, the airless sprayer can lay the paint on flawlessly.
An Airless Paint Sprayer
works by pumping paint at a very high pressure, up to 3,000 psi, through a hose and out a tiny hole in the spray gun tip. The tip is designed to break up the paint evenly into a fan-shaped spray pattern of tiny droplets. Using different tips, you can spray thin liquids like stain, lacquer and varnish or thicker liquids like latex house paint. With a little practice, you can use an airless sprayer to apply a perfectly smooth finish on doors, cabinets and woodwork. And since an airless sprayer pumps paint directly from a can or 5-gallon bucket, you can apply a lot of material in a short time. This makes an airless sprayer particularly well suited for large paint jobs, like priming bare drywall in a new house or painting a 300-ft.-long privacy fence.
are designed around three basic devices: cylinders, blades, motors and sprayers. A piston is installed in the cylinder. The piston pushes the length of the cylinder by compressed air, and then returns by air or spring. In a common pneumatic hammer (called percussion drill), the piston is not connected to anything, but moves freely in the cylinder. At one end of the power stroke, the piston strikes the top of the drill bit; An additional mechanism in a hammer drill rotates the bit slightly after each blow. Light hand-held pneumatic hammer is used for cutting paint, carving rock and riveting from metal. Larger hammers for mining and quarrying; Some of them are mounted on mechanically propelled vehicles. The hammer is designed to be clamped on the side of a bucket or other container to hold sand or concrete. Vibration will cause the contents to settle. The blade motor is better adapted to rotary motion and can run at high speed. In this motor, the sliding blade radiates from the shaft end extending to the cylinder. The center of the shaft is not in the center of the cylinder; Therefore, the cavitation size formed by the blade and the cylinder wall is not equal. In the position with small cavitation, the air entering through the opening on the cylinder wall tends to push the blade to the position with large cavitation. There, air escapes through a second opening in the cylinder wall. When high-speed operation is required, there is no gear connection between the shaft and wire brush, drill bit, screwdriver and grinder; The speed is usually 10000 to 20000 rpm.
