FEIN UK has shared stories from its newest customers, following demonstrations of its grinders and impact drivers. Also discussed is its next generation of cordless grinders, and a new superb end-user deal.
FEIN’s history has seen them develop and innovate a number of tools for end-users, becoming a specialist in metal power tools and applications.
Last year, end-user Rob Roan was one of many people who helped celebrate FEIN’s 150 years of manufacturing, by testing one of the company’s metal drills and an angle grinder.
“We were all very impressed with the feel of the unit. When you press the start you can tell this is a quality gearbox and motor in your hand. We have managed to burn out every blue professional drill I have ever bought but the FEIN survived us!” he said.
JP Schoonbrood sought a die grinder that could deliver 8-10 hours work a day; he has now regularly been regularly using the FEIN die grinder for over four months; used for modifying car engines, in particular the cylinder heads: opening up, re-profiling and polishing the ports for better overall performance.
“Having not owned a die grinder that has lasted me more than a week before needing repair, I expected the grinder to join the tool grave yard under my workbench before the first week was out,” JP said.
“However, I was shocked to find that the FEIN machine lasted me through both weeks without issue, and overall I was left very impressed by the tool.”
FEIN UK has announced its grinding technology is taking another leap forward, releasing a new cordless generation of grinders.
These are all supported by the existing battery system and a new ‘High Power’ battery system. Both the cordless angle grinders and the cordless die grinders have a new, dust-resistant, and brushless FEIN PowerDrive motor with an innovative technology concept.
Christian Weber, Grinding Product Manager at FEIN, commented: “The grinders are intended for steel construction firms, who use them to cut steel girders, for fitters, mounting stairway and balcony railings, or for people working in industry, needing to grind welded seams flexibly and in tight spaces.
“At the same time, the cordless angle grinders are an important tool for firms specialising in interior work because they often need a cordless system to cut a wide range of materials during on-site assembly work.”
The FEIN cordless angle grinders are available from specialist retailers as a Select or Set variant, with the 18 V HighPower lithium-ion battery, as are the new die grinders.
