The abrasives technology company Mirka participates in Composites Europe 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany, on September 19-21, 2017. Composites Europe is the leading European industry event for composite materials, manufacturing, processing and application. Mirka's stand D60 in Hall 4 displays the latest sanding and polishing solutions for composite surfaces, with live demonstrations throughout the exhibition.
A recognised innovation leader in sanding and polishing, Mirka combines unique abrasives with state-of-the art tools, providing efficient, dust-free sanding of all surfaces. Mirka's latest addition to the power tool range is the Mirka® DEOS electric sander, available globally from September 2017. The new abrasive launched earlier this year, Abranet® Ace HD, is a well-received addition to the Abranet family. Mirka also highlights its award-winning cordless sander and the new Mirka® AIROS sander for industrial robots.
With its low profile and weight, Mirka DEOS gets you closer to the surface and brings your dust-free sanding experience to a completely new level. Mirka DEOS has a brushless motor, a built in electronic motor brake and an easy-to-use lever for controlling motor speed. By connecting Mirka DEOS via Bluetooth to the myMirka® app, you can measure vibration levels while sanding. The myMirka platform is part of the company's vision to provide digital services that create a healthier and more productive work environment.
Abranet Ace HD is a dust-free solution for coarse sanding. Its unique symmetrical diamond net pattern has excellent edge wear resistance, which increases the lifetime of the abrasive. The sharp ceramic grains provide superior stock removal and exceptionally fast cutting performance. Available as discs, rolls and sheets, Abranet Ace HD has grit range P40-P120. Together with the finer grit abrasives of the Abranet family, Mirka now truly offers dust-free sanding from start to finish.
Mirka's design and development work has been widely acknowledged with several awards. In April 2017, the Mirka® AOS-B Cordless Sander won the Red Dot Design Award 2017. The smallest battery driven spot repair sander on the market was awarded for its ergonomic, user-friendly design. The Li-ion battery lasts up to 16 hours in spot repair use. Mirka also provides solutions for automated work: the Mirka AIROS random orbital sander for industrial robots is the latest development by Mirka to meet the needs of original equipment manufacturers. The pad size of the sander is 150 mm and it is suitable for both dry and wet sanding.
