CS Unitec has introduced a line of low-vibration needle scalers with an optional dust shroud. The Trelawny™ Vibro-Lo™ VL series is designed to remove coatings and corrosion and clean other accumulated materials from metal surfaces.
According to the company, the machines offer 7 times less vibration than traditional needle scalers. The internal air pressure is used to absorb the recoil and impact from the anvil and needles. The optional dust shroud helps maintain a clean working environment when the tool is attached to a vacuum.
The lightweight, pneumatic needle scalers provide up to 3,000 blows/min. They are suitable for irregular surfaces, as well as cleaning and stress-relieving weld seams and steel joints. The tools can be converted to chisel scalers for splitting, chipping, and pointing applications.
Pistol-grip and inline handle designs are available.
