press release

Bosch is extending its line of products for professional finishing of stainless steel to include four new tools. New additions to the Bosch product line are the GRB 14 CE Professional pipe belt sander, the GEF 7 E Professional power file and the GSI 14 CE Professional burnisher. Bosch will also be launching the GWS 15-125 Inox Professional, a new angle grinder for finishing stainless steel. Bosch has developed these new tools in response to the changing demands on metalworking trades: stainless steel is increasingly being used and today already accounts for a large proportion of the materials processed in the metalworking sector. Professionals need special tools to work a material such as stainless steel because, for example, it tarnishes blue when subjected to high temperatures.

Expertise in metal and stainless steel finishing
Many years of experience go into the development of Bosch metalworking tools. The new power tools by Bosch enable professionals to achieve desired finishes in stainless steel within the shortest possible time – for grinding pipes, edges or surfaces, removing weld seams or heat-related blue coloration, sanding out scratches, or for burnishing and structuring surfaces. To be able to gently work these materials, the pipe belt sander, power file, burnisher and angle grinder all have a six-stage spindle speed preselection feature. Thanks to the slimline handle, all tools fit comfortably in the hand, can be guided precisely and are easy to use. Their ergonomic design allows professionals to work for much longer and without fatigue. In addition, all accessories can be changed tool-free. This means high efficiency: metalworkers, fitters and handrail constructors can achieve high-quality work results faster – whether in the workshop or on the construction site.

All stainless steel finishing tools at a glance

New from September 2013:
Pipe belt sander GRB 14 CE Professional – reliable tool for finishing pipes
The GRB 14 CE Professional pipe belt sander is highly effective when it comes to sanding pipes of varying diameter and geometry. The special shape of the drive rollers prevents the abrasive belts from slipping off and makes for rapid work progress without interruptions. The abrasive belt wraps up to 270 degrees around pipes and thus allows 360-degree pipe finishing to be achieved in just two stages. Thanks to the adjustable auxi-liary handle as well as the position and design of the sanding arms, even near-wall sanding is possible – this allows, for example, installed handrails to be sanded without having to remove them beforehand. The speed of the sander can be preselected for any type of material and any accessory.

Power file GEF 7 E Professional – handy tool for hard-to-reach areas
Weighing only two kilograms, the GEF 7 E Professional power file is a universal tool which, thanks to its slimline design, is ideal for working materials in tight or hard-to-reach areas, such as corners and edges. The power file has the slimmest grip circumference in its class and can be guided very easily and precisely, allowing excellent work results to be achieved. The working angle can be adjusted continuously through 360 degrees without tools. No tools are needed to change the abrasive paper either. File speed can be adapted depending on use and material. The result: efficient work.

Burnisher GSI 14 CE Professional – versatile tool for surfaces
The GSI 14 CE Professional burnisher has a wide range of applications. It is suitable for removing tarnishing, scratches, and so-called mill scale and flaws, as well as for brushing, burnishing and structuring surfaces. All this is possible thanks an extensive range of roller accessories: each roller achieves a different surface finish and is selected depending on the desired result. For example, glossy finishes can also be obtained using the GSI 14 CE Professional.

Angle grinder GWS 15-125 Inox Professional – powerful tool for stainless steel
The GWS 15-125 Inox Professional angle grinder is designed for sanding, cutting and deburring stainless steel pipes, surfaces and weld seams. Its low maximum speed of 7500 rpm allows gentle working of materials and prevents tarnishing of stainless steel. In addition, the GWS 15-125 Inox Professional is very powerful and efficient thanks to its 1500 watt motor which delivers 50 percent more torque than standard angle grinders. Kick-Back Stop, restart protection and a non-rotating protective guard ensure a high level of user safety during metal fabrication.

Bosch offers all its new stainless steel finishing tools as a proven system solution complete with a wide range of accessories in a transport system.

The following products are already available in the Bosch Professional range:
Polisher GPO 14 CE Professional
The GPO 14 CE Professional polisher excels by virtue of its ergonomically shaped handle with softgrip, its compact design and its low weight of only 2.5 kilograms. The powerful 1400-watt motor with soft start helps to reduce fatigue when working on large surfaces. The result is glossy surface finishes.

Straight grinder GGS 8 CE Professional
Thanks to its handy design and high torque, the GGS 8 CE Professional straight grinder is suitable for grinding stainless steel surfaces. The 750-watt motor with direct motor cooling, soft start and constant electronics ensures fast and continuous work progress. A clamping system which allows play-free attachment of grinding tips ensures precision work.
