New Mirka DEROS is small in size but big on performance


Mirka is growing its award-winning Direct Electric Random Orbital Sander (DEROS) product family in 2019 with the addition of the new DEROS 77mm. The tool’s compact design makes it easier to use for longer periods of time, while allowing it to undertake small repairs easily, access hard to reach areas effectively, and minimise the need for time-consuming hand sanding.

The Mirka® DEROS 77mm has a low profile, which brings the tool closer to the surface and provides a more controlled sanding process. It is available with a 2.5mm orbit that delivers a smooth overall sanding experience, especially in post paint applications, or a 5mm orbit, which enables users to remove paint quickly and efficiently. The R&D team in Jeppo, Finland has developed the tool’s ergonomic design to put the user’s health and safety first by providing a tool that can be comfortably gripped for extended periods, which, alongside its low vibration levels, reduces the strain put on joints and muscles. 

Mirka’s innovative digital solutions that run through an integrated vibration sensor and bluetooth connectivity enables the user to access the vibration, speed and usage data through the myMirka app to understand how the tool is being used on a day-to-day basis and to identify ways in which it can be used more efficiently.  Additionally, when the DEROS 77mm is combined with Mirka’s net abrasives and dust extraction unit, it provides a consistent scratch pattern and a dust-free environment to work in.

Steve Smith, national sales manager, ART of Mirka UK, says, “The DEROS is one of our flagship tools, so the decision to add the compact 77mm tool was the next logical step based on how tooling is evolving and to meet the requirements of our customers. We see it as a real problem solver and we look forward to seeing the reaction of our customers when they get their hands on it and experience how effortlessly efficient it is across multiple surfaces and applications.”
