What are components of an air hammer?

Jun 15, 2023
An air hammer, also known as an air chisel or pneumatic hammer, is a handheld power tool that uses compressed air to deliver high-impact blows. It is commonly used in construction, metalworking, automotive repair, and other applications that require cutting, shaping, or breaking metal or other materials.

The primary components of an air hammer include:

    Handle: The handle provides a grip for the operator to hold and control the tool. It is typically made of a non-slip material for comfort and safety during use.

    Trigger: The trigger is located on the handle and allows the operator to control the activation of the air hammer. Squeezing the trigger releases compressed air and initiates the hammering action.

    Barrel: The barrel houses the internal mechanism of the air hammer, including the piston and impact mechanism. It directs the air pressure and controls the movement of the piston.

    Piston: The piston is a cylindrical component inside the barrel that moves back and forth when the trigger is activated. The movement of the piston generates the striking action of the air hammer.

    Impact Mechanism: The impact mechanism converts the linear motion of the piston into a high-impact hammering action. It typically consists of a chisel or a pointed tip that strikes against a surface, causing material to be cut, shaped, or broken.

    Air Inlet: The air inlet is located on the handle or the bottom of the air hammer and is used to connect the tool to a compressed air source, such as an air compressor, through an air hose.
