WHAT ARE GRS® AIR SYSTEMS? Air Systems are the control boxes that take in oil-free compressed air and output pulses of air to a handpiece creating a tailored handpiece experience. THE CONTROL BOX IS THE HEART OF THE GRS SYSTEM, SENDING OUT PULSES OF AIR. The pulses of air travel to the handpiece where they drive a piston and anvil, enabling the handpiece to hammer and cut.

CAN I JUST BUY THE HANDPIECE AND START WORKING?
PULSES OF AIR PUSH PISTON INTO ANVIL
GRS® handpieces need the pulses of air from the control box to operate. Each individual pulse of air pushes the piston down the inside of the handpiece, and that energy is transferred from the piston to the anvil, QC Holder, and graver. HANDPIECES ARE LIKE MINIATURE JACKHAMMERS, TRANSFORMING PULSES OF AIR FROM THE CONTROL BOX INTO STRIKES OF THE GRAVER. Because the pulses of air are so short, the graver can impact metal at a rate of thousands of strokes per minute. It’s the impacts of the graver that allow it to cut through metal easily. WHAT DOES “SEPARATION OF SPEED AND POWER” MEAN? An important and unique aspect of GRS® Air Systems is the separation of speed and power. What this means is that when you set the strokes per minute (speed) on the control box, you still have the full range of power at the handpiece either through the foot pedal or Airtact® hand control. SET THE SPEED ON THE MACHINE. THE AMOUNT OF POWER DELIVERED TO THE GRAVER DEPENDS ON HOW HARD YOU PRESS THE FOOT PEDAL OR AIRTACT® HANDPIECE. Whether you are digging deep to remove metal or fine shading, the proper amount of power is always available.
