Compatible with virtually any shop's existing air supply. Comes completely assembled and ready for service.
Step up to heavy-duty metal-cutting performance with a 16-gauge (1.52 mm) capacity TurboShear from Malco Products. The Air Powered Malco TurboShear No. TSA1A is compatible with virtually any shop’s existing air supply and comes completely assembled and ready for service. Cutting applications in automotive grade sheet steel include trunk pans and floor boards. Clearance between the shear’s cutting inserts may be adjusted for optimal performance within a range of 16 to 26-gauge (1.52 to 0.46 mm) automotive steel. A helical (spiral) shaped foot permits easy left, right or straight cutting action. And a 5-position 0 to 90 degree (0, 22.5, 45, 67.5 and 90) adjustable head angle makes this TurboShear exceptionally maneuverable for cuts through profiles and into tight spaces. This model TSA1A air option features an aluminum cast head design with a compact pneumatic motor for outstanding accessibility and control at high to low speeds.
Long-life, 4-sided, carbon steel cutting inserts are designed to be periodically rotated together to maximize service life before replacement. Insert cutting life is rated at 1,200-ft (365.76 m), at a minimum, in maximum capacity 16-gauge (1.52 mm) steel using all four edges of the cutting inserts. Cutting life of inserts increases dramatically when averaged over cutting applications in a variety of steel thicknesses from 16 to 26-gauge (1.52 to 0.46 mm). Cutting inserts are accessible without disassembly of the shear head casings and are easily replaced on the job.
