Mirka launches Orbital Sander

Mirka (UK) Ltd continues to expand its range of advanced sanding and polishing machines with the launch of itsPneumatic Random Orbital Sander – MIRKA® PROS650CV.

This machine was developed by Mirka’s industry leading design team. It is packed with many features that have made it an efficient and effective sanding tool, perfect for professional use.

MIRKA® PROS has been specifically developed to produce maximum dust extraction, even at reduced suction power.

MIRKA® PROS features optimised ergonomics that make it extremely user-friendly. The design incorporates an integrated cover which supports the operator’s hand and protects it from outgoing air discharge, reducing the risk of cold finger – this enables operators to comfortably use the machine for longer periods. As an additional safety feature, when the support cover is raised the machine is locked, allowing the disc to be changed or an air inlet hose to be connected.

The innovative features continue with a ‘brake seal’ designed to deliver unique performance benefits. For example, in contrast to conventional sanders, the brake seal on the MIRKA® PROS makes the backing pad oscillate rather than free spin when holding the machine in the air. This eliminates the possibility of causing deep marks in the surface when the fast rotating abrasive first touches the surface to be sanded. In addition, as soon as the tool is removed from the work surface the brake seal immediately brakes the ‘rotation speed’ of the backing pad. The long-life brake seal also contributes to improved dust extraction efficiency by minimising the internal suction leakage.

What’s more, the MIRKA® PROS is constructed from high quality materials that deliver long lasting durability, ensuring outstanding performance long into the future.
A new backing pad has also been designed for the MIRKA® PROS. It features a central air inlet which results in improved air flow and helps extract dust away from the centre of the tool even faster.

The new Mirka® PROS is testament to Mirka’s commitment to provide a total sanding solution that delivers real cost reduction benefits to their customers. It is designed to work perfectly with Mirka accessories and the revolutionary NET sanding abrasives range, including Autonet®, Abranet® and Abranet® HD. Combined with a dust extraction system the benefits are; true ’dust-free’ sanding; a cleaner work environment; better control and a high quality finish. In short, a total sanding solution.

The new Mirka® PROS is available in both 5mm and 8mm orbits from all Mirka stockists.
