Industrial power tools use an electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic power source for increased productivity and performance over manual hand tools. An electric industrial power tool uses electricity for operation and will require specific voltage for normal function. A pneumatic power tool uses air pressure to operate and will likely have specific pressure requirements in psi. A hydraulic power tool uses liquid pressure to function.
An industrial power tool can range from band saws, which may be portable or stationary and use a saw band to cut materials such as wood and metal, to drill presses, which use hydraulic or electric energy for a range of drilling applications on hard materials. Lathes rotate workpieces for turning applications. Milling machines may be vertically, horizontally, or universally oriented for cutting in a range of directions and may have drilling capability. Press brakes are industrial power tools that typically use hydraulic pressure to press, punch, and shear materials. Sand blasters are a type of large-scale power tool used to smooth or shape surfaces by using a stream of abrasives for finishing.
