Von Arx

Your Surface Prep Specialist

Von Arx was founded by Paul von Arx in 1941. As an inventor, Paul von Arx produced a wealth of ideas enabling him to progress from mechanic to manufacturer. He has been awarded over one hundred patents for which he received the coveted "Mérite de l'invention" medal in Brussels. Von Arx was set up as an industrial design and mechanical engineering enterprise. The company’s big breakthrough came with the introduction of the Von Arx sheet metal guillotine shear. Manufactured up until the mid-‘70's, the almost legendary metal shear still operates in certain places today.

At Substrate Technology Inc., we are proud to carry Von Arx needle scalers. Founded in 1941 by mechanic Paul von Arx, this European company was known for its mechanical and sandblasting tube cleaning devices. However, they received global attention for the pneumatic needle scaler they developed in 1952. Since that time, they have continued to be the trusted source for powerful, durable needle scalers that are capable of highly precise work in a short period of time. 

What Are Needle Scalers?

Needle scalers, also called a needle gun, is often used in metalwork to remove rust, mill scale, and old paint from metal. However, it can also be used to remove paint and other materials from concrete as well as create a rough surface profile in compact areas or along vertical surfaces. 

Needle scalers are equipped with a group of fine chisels, also called needles. Using compressed air to force a piston forwards and backward, the piston pushes the needles against a work surface at high rates of speed chipping away at the rust, paint, or other material, and getting down to the bare metal in just a few passes. 

Their compact, handheld size makes them ideal for small spaces as well as walls. Plus, the needles can adjust to contours so they can also be used on irregular surfaces with excellent results.
