New from FLEX: Cordless Polisher PE 150 18.0-EC & XFE 15 150 18.0-EC
Two new FLEX cordless polishers:
Cordless polishing offers maximum mobility
Steinheim, February 2018 – FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH introduces the PE 150 18.0-EC cordless polisher and the XFE 15 150 18.0-EC cordless random orbital polisher for top-class performance in the vehicle repair and vehicle care shop. “We are the first electric tool manufacturer in the world to offer its cordless polishers with two different drive types – rotary and random orbital,” says Oliver Gnann-Geiger, Head of Marketing at FLEX-Elektrowerkzeuge GmbH. In addition to powerful, high-performance motors, the innovative polishers convince with their low operating noise at maximum speed and their smooth running, low-vibration operation. Their application-oriented design enables the user to guide the cordless polishers smoothly and precisely even in difficult to reach places: in the car paint shop and when undertaking paint restoration and Smart Repair work, for example. Further fields of application include aviation and maritime as well as the acrylic glass industry.
“We have achieved a quantum leap on the road to independence from the mains socket. With the new FLEX cordless polishers, we offer our customers outstanding flexibility and mobility. The automotive trade, vehicle repair workshops and car enthusiasts have been waiting a long time for a cordless polisher,” stresses Oliver Gnann-Geiger.
The focus is on: strong performance, simple and vibration-optimised handling
We have used the tried and tested gear technology of the PE 14-1 / 14-2 FLEX polishers and the current gear technology of the XFE 7-15. “This makes us the only manufacturer in the world to offer a professional cordless random orbital polisher with 15 mm polishing stroke,” confirms Oliver Gnann-Geiger. “Our
powerful cordless polishers perform to the same level as mains-operated tools.” The positive points: high torque, smooth running, a highly efficient and durable EC motor and an intelligent Electronic Management System. And there are no trade-offs compared to mains-operated tools in terms of ergonomics and handling. Optimum support is provided by the familiar, ergonomically shaped grip hood with SoftGrip, which allows the user to guide the polishing tool with precision. The front grip is identical to that of the mains-operated tools, as are the switch position, operation and response behaviour as well. The rear grip has been redesigned and the user-friendly operation optimised: this includes a centrally positioned speed potentiometer for both right-handers and left-handers. The optimum positioning of the rechargeable batteries with intelligent weight distribution gives the user optimum freedom of movement and optimum certainty in addition to precise guidance and perfect balance.
18 V high-performance batteries for more power and better durability
The new compact cordless polishers are equipped with two powerful, long-life batteries, the charging time is short. “Top performance no longer requires a cord. The combination of the latest EC motor technology and intelligent battery technology means the user can work with two 5.0 Ah batteries almost without interruption,” confirms Oliver Gnann-Geiger. The good performance of the FLEX cordless power tools is based on an innovative battery concept that successfully utilises different components to achieve high power and longer running times. The 18 V batteries are available with 2.5 Ah or 5.0 Ah lithium ion batteries.
