Mirka Power Tools, a subsidiary of KWH Mirka, introduces its new Pneumatic Random Orbital Sander. The Mirka PROS650CV has a five millimeter orbit and produces maximum dust extraction, even at low suction power, due to a wider dust suction outlet in the machine housing, says the company. The Mirka PROS features user-friendly ergonomics, including a comfortable grip and a control that can be operated with the left or right hand. An integrated cover supports the operator’s hand and protects it from outgoing air discharge. When the support cover is raised to allow an inlet air hose to be connected, it prevents the machine from starting. Additionally, the brake seal makes the backing pad oscillate rather than free spin when holding the machine in the air, eliminating the possibility of causing deep marks in the surface when the fast rotating abrasive touches the job. A new backing pad (150 mm with 5 mm orbit) features a central air inlet for improved air flow and help in extracting dust from the center of the tool faster, according to the company.
