Consistent quality

Automated sanding is not only more efficient with Mirka AIROS, it’s also smarter. Built-in intelligence allows two-way communication between the sanding head and the control system. Getting detailed information about the status of the sander places you in full control of the sanding process. You get exact  management thanks to the brushless motor and the motor controller with Mirka proprietary technology. The rpm stays constant, even under heavy load, for consistent quality at all times.

Total control on all surfaces

The new Mirka AIROS smart electric sanding head is suitable for robotic sanding of all surfaces. It’s easy to program and you get consistent quality in your TIER1, vehicle, composite, or wood surface sanding process. The Mirka AIROS is best paired with quality Mirka abrasives for optimal sanding results.

Mirka ecosystem

Mirka AIROS is part of the Mirka ecosystem, making it the most dependable solution in the market. An automated sanding solution from Mirka consists of sanding heads, controller unit, abrasives, and disc changing unit. The sanding head is separate from the controller unit, so parts are easy to replace, thus reducing downtime and costs. 

Mirka manufactures best-in-class multihole paper and film discs as well as the forerunner in dust-free sanding, Abranet® net sanding discs. Since we take workers’ health seriously, we aim to minimize dust exposure even in automated environments.  Our disc changing unit was developed by Mirka for optimal use of our abrasives.
