Dynabrade Inc. (Clarence, N.Y., USA) has introduced a new series of air powered Vacuum Disc Sanders, designed to remove and capture coatings from the surface of composite structures and components. The line features 2-, 3-, 5- and 7-inch-diameter vacuum sanders. The vacuum shroud of each tool diverts dust and debris to the vacuum source. The right angle design of each tool features a rubber over-mold on the housing for smooth operation and less vibration to the operator. Each tool powers abrasive discs for material removal on non-ferrous surfaces such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, painted aluminum and more. As the tool is sanding, the flexible vacuum shroud captures dust, debris and contaminants, including Hexavalent Chromium, to the vacuum source. The 2- and 3-inch tools are available in two vacuum styles: A self-generated vacuum model, in-which the tool’s exhaust directs contaminants to a portable self-contained vacuum system; a central vacuum model is available for connection to external or central vacuum systems. The 5- and 7-inch models are available in central vacuum models only.
