AirShirz® pneumatic scissors from Bettcher Industries increase worker productivity while reducing muscle fatigue in turkey gizzard harvesting and gizzard opening operations.

Lightweight yet powerful AirShirz® pneumatic scissors from Bettcher Industries increase worker productivity while reducing muscle fatigue in turkey gizzard harvesting and gizzard opening operations. With its fixed bottom blade design, AirShirz scissors provide a clean, accurate intestine cut, as well as easy piercing to split and open the gizzard.

Fully controllable blades allow operators to use AirShirz units in the gizzard harvesting and opening application, just as they would manual scissors. Yet AirShirz scissors require approximately 90% less muscle activity to operate and achieve up to 127% greater worker productivity over manual scissors.

AirShirz scissors are available in two grip designs: a two-finger grip for smaller hands, and a larger finger loop style, which allows for customization to individual operators. All units feature an automatic spring-return action, so no effort is required to open the blades.

Moreover, the pneumatic design gives users complete control over the cutting action, thereby guarding against accidents or an inadvertent cut. A safety latch secures blades in a locked position to enhance safety and prevent damage when not in use.

AirShirz scissors deliver major improvements in reducing muscle fatigue and exposure to a variety of risk factors associated with musculoskeletal and cumulative trauma disorders when carrying out gizzard harvesting activities. There are clear benefits for poultry processing managers who are looking for improved employee welfare and lower turnover – along with increased productivity.

AirShirz pneumatic scissors utilize stainless steel blades, with multiple configurations available. Blades can be removed in seconds and sharpened using conventional sharpening equipment. Based on 80 hours of use weekly, blade life extends to six months with daily buffing and weekly blade sharpening. AirShirz scissors use standard 80 to 120 psi plant air.

Established in 1944, Bettcher Industries is a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative precision cutting tools for food processing operations and industrial applications.
