AHR 2023: Malco Launches New Lightweight & Ergonomic Offset Andy™ Snips
Malco Products, SBC, one of the nation’s leading solution developers and manufacturers of a variety of high-quality tools for the HVAC trade, has launched a new product within its popular Andy™ snips line, the lightweight and ergonomic Andy Aluminum Handled Offset Left Snips 12” (MC12L).
Verified by internal testing, the MC12L Andy snips offer the following advantages over competing products:
- Superior material flow for up to 60% faster cutting speeds
- Up to 45% longer cuts when operating one-handed
- The highest maneuverability for continuous cut radii half the size of leading competition, with better cut quality
- Lower jaw made of investment-cast tool steel allows for starter holes as small as ½”
With this versatile tool, HVAC trade pros can make longer, tighter, higher-quality straight and left curve cuts in many types of materials, including sheet metal, metal roofing, aluminum, stainless steel, steel siding, and vinyl.
The MC12L Andy snips are built with incredibly strong, lightweight aluminum for ease of use and durability, and the ergonomic offset handle provides a safer and more comfortable angle for cutting to reduce hand fatigue.
A full 3-inch cutting length reduces the total number of cuts and repetitive motions, saving the user time and effort. The sharp bottom cutting jaw is constructed of tough tool steel, while the upper cutting blade can be easily replaced every 20,000 cycles to extend its overall life.
“Andy snips are one of Malco’s most popular product lines, so we are proud to continue building on this legacy of excellence by bringing this high-quality, new offset version to HVAC technicians,” said Nancy Gunnerson, Malco’s director of marketing. “Our team’s innovative design of the MC12L meets the most rigorous standards of cut quality, length and ease of use.”
