Press Release 02/2016 New from April 1, 2016:

The latest generation of Erdi compound leverage snips D39ASS

Futuristic design meets pioneering technology


With the Erdi D39ASS, BESSEY is bringing an entirely new generation of
compound leverage shape and straight cutting snips to the market for
the sheet metalworking industry. These sheet metal snips enable faster
and more precise work with easier operation. Also innovative in the
snips segment is the sintered steel insert developed in-house. It greatly
reduces friction in the joint area, which makes the snips extremely
smooth running and wear-resistant. It is therefore possible with the
D39ASS to work longer and with less fatigue.
The innovative design of the Erdi Ideal snips is setting benchmarks in design
and construction engineering. BESSEY has reduced the handle opening
angle, so that the user can utilise the entire cutting length with every cut.
Double compound leverage additionally reduces the force required.

The newly-developed D39ASS shape and


straight cutting snips are comfortable to hold
and easy to use. To achieve this, the handle
opening range was reduced almost entirely
without sacrificing the cutting length, the
latch was positioned in the centre and the
cutter head was designed to be more
compact.

The new shape and straight cutting snips from BESSEY offer the user
significant product advantages when it comes to quality. The snips have an
extremely robust joint area which is complemented by a newly developed
insert produced from sintered steel. This feature is entirely unique in the snips
segment and, reduces friction in the joint area. As a result, the D39ASS is
both smooth running and extremely wear-resistant. Furthermore, the joint area
is securely bolted with a stable stud bolt. A stainless steel cover plate, fitted
over the joint, lends the sheet metal snips their futuristic appearance and also
protects the spring located beneath it, which is installed in the housing and is
maintenance-free.
With a total length of 230 mm and a cutting length of 30 mm, the new Erdi
shape and straight cutting snips are extremely compact and convenient to
use. The extremely compact cutter head with partially countersunk head
screw connection is a key design feature of the D39ASS. The compact shape
permits high-precision cutting of curves and the tightest of radii, while also
being very effective at straight cuts whether it is at the edge of the sheet or
in the centre of the panel. Because the stainless steel cutter has a special
hardness rating 61 HRC, the Erdi D39ASS can cut effortlessly and precisely
through sheets up to 1.2 mm thick. A latch positioned centrally on the top
handle guarantees that right and left-handed users can use the snips with
ease, without a change in grip.
The new Erdi Ideal snips from BESSEY are used in heating, air-conditioning
and dry construction works, and by numerous other trades. They are designed
for straight and curved cuts, and are available as right and left-cutting models
from specialist dealers. The price of the snips is EUR 69.00 (MSRPs excl.
VAT).
