Festool USA Launches New Multi-Jetstream Products

LEBANON, IN--(Marketwire - December 18, 2009) - On January 1, 2010, Festool USA will launch its new line of Multi-jetstream equipped sanders, sanding pads and abrasives. "Multi-jetstream exemplifies Festool's principles of innovation," says Rick Bush, Festool Product Manager. Bush continues, "These new products are an improvement over existing performance, and are designed to be both backward and forward compatible."

Festool will be transitioning all 6" disc abrasives and pads to the new Multi-jetstream design. The improved design provides higher material removal rates, increases airflow, and results in even better dust extraction efficiency. The patented Multi-jetstream technology improves sanding results through the interaction of intake and exhaust air, which results in time and cost savings. The new pads also incorporate an enhanced, heat-resistant StickFix design to extend both pad and abrasive life, reducing the costs associated with these consumables.

The new and improved design applies to 6" (150 mm) Rotex RO 150, ETS 150/3, ETS 150/5, LEX 2 150/3, and LEX 150/7 sanding pads and abrasives. The new paper works on previous pads, and previous paper works on the new pads, allowing end-users the ability to use their existing supplies, without waste. The pricing on the new items is the same as the items they are replacing. To view a video of the Festool Multi-jetstream technology, click here.
