FEIN is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its introduction of oscillating technology in power tools.
FEIN has invented several brands of the oscillating multi tool and a raft of industry technologies over the five decades and now every main competitor sells oscillating tools in the UK market.
In 1967 the first oscillating machine, the plaster-cast, was introduced to the market, designed for use in hospitals to remove plaster-casts on broke bones. Then in 1984, FEIN introduced a cutter for high-speed removal of vehicle windscreens and 1986 saw the creation of the oscillating delta sander.
Dan Wood at FEIN comments: “FEIN Power Tools have continually developed and improved the oscillating technology over the years so we have the best and most complete range of oscillating multi-tools and accessories available.”
The USP of the current range of machines is the anti-vibration technology, which is incorporated into all (but the entry level corded machines) including the FEIN cordless oscillating range. Now that the industry understands more about how vibration and noise can affect the health of the user, FEIN has developed an anti-vibration system that reduces the HAV by 70 % and the noise level by 50% against the previous version.
The new Starlock fitting system means that the user can change accessories in just three seconds without the need of an Allen key. The patented Starlock system is also more efficient in transferring power to the accessory and therefore the work piece, resulting in speeding-up each application making each job more time efficient.
The FEIN Starlock accessories can be used on all other manufacturers OMT’s and can even enhance the performance of their machine.
