Exact, easy and fast cutting and grinding of metals
Especially temperature and abrasion resistant cutting and grinding discs
High material removal rate with consistently high work quality
Workpieces made of high-quality metals such as inox and hardened steel require especially careful treatment. Due to a high rate of wear, conventional cutting and grinding discs have to be changed frequently in order to ensure consistently high work quality.
The “Best for Inox” and “Best for Metal” cutting and grinding discs from Bosch provide a remedy for this: high-temperature-treated or ceramic encapsulated abrasive grits with high grain strength are used depending on the type of disc. The abrasive grains are integrated into a phenol resin bond matrix, which is especially temperature and abrasion resistant due to the addition of functional fillers and additives. A high material removal rate and consistently high work quality are achieved as a result of this.
The “Best for Inox” and “Best for Metal” cutting and grinding discs are available now at specialist retail outlets in conventional sizes for angle grinders. The “Best for Inox” cutting discs are available in diameters of 115 to 230 millimeters, while the “Best for Inox” grinding discs are available in diameters of 115 mm and 125 mm. The “Best for Metal” cutting and grinding discs are available in diameters of 115 to 230 millimeters.
Accessories and power tools from a single source Bosch offers different professional angle grinders which match the new cutting and grinding discs. These include the GWS 14-125 Inox Professional for working in stainless steel and the GWS 24-230 LVI Professional large angle grinder for demanding applications in the metalworking trade, in civil engineering, in machine, tank and container construction, and in installation, maintenance and repair work.
Applies to selected professional tools, no leasing or minimum contract volume
36 months free repair including wear parts and batteries
Free pick-up and delivery service of defective tool and replacement tool
In cooperation with retailers, Bosch is now offering the 36-month full service for professional tradespeople who are looking for maximum cost certainty, who want to be able to carry on working when their power tool breaks down, and who want to have everything processed quickly and easily. The service includes the following benefits during the service period when selected professional power tools from Bosch are purchased:
free repair and maintenance of defective tools including wear parts and batteries, except for wear resulting from excessive strain in continuous use – known as “Power Using”.
pick-up of defective tools at any fixed delivery address in Germany while simultaneously delivering a replacement tool,
return of the repaired tool while simultaneously taking back the replacement tool, and
once yearly calibration and function check of purchased measuring tools.
Full service on broad product range – without leasing The 36-month full service applies to about 60 selected professional tools from Bosch's core product ranges – from cordless screwdrivers in the 10.8, 14.4 and 18 volt classes, rotary and demolition hammers, angle grinders and saws, through to measuring tools such as laser rangefinders. All of the tools have fixed service lump sums allocated to them, which the professional tradesperson pays when purchasing the desired tool, and in doing so books the 36-month full service via the retailer and receives the corresponding service card. The recommended retail price of the service lump sum is between 25 and 75 euros plus VAT, depending on the particular tool.
There is no minimum contract volume, nor is this a leasing program. Sven Bobe, Sales Director for Specialist Retail at the Bosch Power Tools Division is convinced that: “we are therefore also able to provide smaller and medium-sized skilled worker companies with an attractive, economical service offer”. A further advantage of the concept is the quick and easy processing in the event of service: “a call to the free hotline or an e-mail to the corresponding service address is all it takes, and we will quickly and unbureaucratically take care of delivery of a replacement tool and the repair – without any red tape”, says Bobe. All the professional tradesperson has to state is his contact details and the ten-digit part number and nine-digit serial number of the tool. He will then receive his replacement tool within a day – for example directly to the jobsite – to ensure that he can quickly get back to work. The tradesperson will get his tool back immediately after repair – normally after maximum five working days. A calibration and a function check per year are also included for measuring tools. “All modules interact seamlessly, and with our concept we cover a very broad product range including measuring tools”, summarizes Sven Bobe. “We can therefore offer professional tradespeople a package that delivers precisely what it claims to: 36 months full service.”
