Palm Sanders are must-have items for most composite fabricators and automotive body shops. There are typically three different orbital diameters which are 2.5mm, 5mm and 8mm. The choice is dependent on the cutting capacity. Alpha® introduces the ROPS-056 Palm Sander which has a 5mm orbit diameter. Since this is the most popular size for the general purpose applications, these types of tools are easier to work with on large flatter surfaces as compared with a single action sander/polisher. The Alpha® ROPS-056 has a well-balanced, lightweight design that is easy to operate with low noise emissions and little vibration on the hand. This has been made possible, by a composite motor housing and rotor, with ergonomics as a key focal point. The unit also has a dust port available to hook-up to a dust hose for a virtually dust-free central vacuum sanding application. Combine this with the Alpha® HEPA vacuum for a solid solution for dust control!
