Mirka launches new extension pad

Published: 1 November 2019 - John King
 

. The pad’s overhang will enable users to sand further into corners and hard to reach areas.

The new pad is versatile enough to handle multiple applications but has been specifically developed for sanding window shutters and sash windows, which have traditionally been tricky to reach with a normal orbital sander because slats are narrow and difficult to access. 

The Mirka DEOS is said to be the only electric orbital sander on the market that has been optimised for net abrasives by incorporating more than 45 holes in the pad. When the tool is combined with Mirka’s net and paper abrasives, it offers a scratch pattern and a dust-free work environment. 

Its innovative features incorporate a powerful brushless motor which provides a high power to weight ratio when in use. The design team has been able to reduce the weight, size and height of the sander, providing customers with a compact, lightweight and easy to use tool.                           

In addition, it has an integrated vibration sensor with Bluetooth technology that can be connected to a mobile device with the new myMirka app to give guidance on vibration levels.

Pete Sartain, national sales manager, Industrial at Mirka UK, said: “As a business, we want to provide the right tool for the job at hand. Our R&D team has listened to what customers require for jobs they are working on, which has led to the design and development of the new extension pad. 

"We believe this pad will increase the versatility of the DEOS 353 by making it easier for users to reach difficult, hard to reach areas, making sanding narrow gaps a thing of the past.”
