press release

Bosch is making it easy for professional tradespeople to select the suitable multi-cutter accessory: in future, all Bosch accessories will be equipped with a universal OIS (Oscillating Interface System). As a result, they fit all conventional multi-cutter models for professional users without the need for an adapter. For the first time, finishing trades such as joiners, tilers and floorers can therefore compile their multi-cutter accessories totally flexibly and independently of the tool brand. Moreover, the new color-code system enables you to see at a glance which accessories are suitable for which materials: Wood, Metal, Wood/Metal, Grout/Abrasives and Multi Material are the categories from which professional tradespeople can quickly and easily choose the accessories that are relevant for them.

A world first: “C-Tec Precision” plunge-cutting saw blades
Bosch is continually expanding the accessory system for multi-cutters. New to the range, for example, are the “C-Tec Precision” plunge-cutting saw blades made of bi-metal and high-carbon steel. They have a reinforced tool mount with anti-vibration slots, a curved cutting edge and a tapered body. The new tool mount reduces vibration of the saw blade, making the cut line precise and clean. The curved cutting edge ensures that the tradesperson can apply the saw blade at precisely the desired position, without the oscillating motion tearing the material. The tapered body minimizes the risk of the saw blade jamming during work. These three features result in very smooth, precise plunge cuts. The “C-Tec Precision” plunge-cutting saw blades are available in the Wood, Hard Wood and Wood & Metal versions.

Multi-cutters, accessories and a transport system from a single source
Bosch offers multi-cutters, accessories and a transport system from a single source: the powerful GOP 14,4 V-EC Professional and GOP 18 V-EC Professional cordless multi-cutters, for example, are agile tools for different adjustment, trimming and repair jobs. They especially make work easier for professionals in the interior fitting trades. A matching 36-piece multi-cutter accessory set is available in a set case: the “I-Boxx Pro Set – Interior Fitting”. It contains various bi-metal plunge-cutting and segment saw blades, two scrapers and a sanding plate with 20 sheets of sanding paper. The set is available at specialist retail outlets for 149 euros.

The new multi-cutter accessories with universal OIS and color-code system will be available at specialist retail outlets from April 2013 onwards, at the same time as the three “C-Tec Precision” plunge-cutting saw blades:

  • the “C-Tec Precision” Wood plunge-cutting saw blade for 12.27 euros (single blade), 49.33 euros (5-piece multi pack) and 214.25 euros (25-piece bulk pack),
  • the “C-Tec Precision” Hard Wood plunge-cutting saw blade for 15.04 euros (single blade), 60 euros (5-piece multi pack) and 262.50 euros (25-piece bulk pack),
  • the “C-Tec Precision” Wood & Metal plunge-cutting saw blade for 15.04 euros (single blade), 60 euros (5-piece multi pack) and 262.50 euros (25-piece bulk pack).
All prices are recommended retail prices excluding VAT.
