Optimised Systems for Automotive Applications

The Total Automotive Sanding System has customized sets for the bodyman, painter and polisher. Your job just got cleaner, safer, more efficient and more profitable.

All components are obviously also available separately - though the sets will offer you the complete solution in one go.

  • Be thrilled by great results of the electric bodywork sanding set encompassing the ROTEX RO 150. It's an all-round set, which makes you faster thanks to the short time to set up and take apart as well as easy back up pad replacement.

  • Enjoy high handling efficiency with the Pneumatic paint preparation set including LEX 3 combined with low cost for compressed air usage.

    Thanks to the dust control, vibration control and pad brake the Electric paint preparation set with the ETC EC 150 is a class of its own when it comes to handling and health consciousness.

  • Achieve a perfect finish in next to no time. The High-gloss set makes this possible for any paint system and any colour tone complexity. The standard workflow allows an impeccable polishing result with little effort.

  • Dry and explosive dusts do not belong in the atmosphere, but in the safety set’s flame-retardant plastic container. Its dust extractor minimises fire and explosion risk and thus actively protects your body shop. The Safety set is a prime example of workplace organisation and promises up to 30% faster working.

  • A lot can happen in 90 minutes. For example, complete minor damage repairs. Using the Spot repair set, repairs of up to 3.5 cm in size can be completed in no time with only one set and one tool. The additional business generated by the Spot repair set naturally also ramps up efficiency and profits.
