Nilfiski-Advance America's Vacuum-Assisted Tools Give Manufacturers the Power to Bust Dust



Using Nilfisk-Advance America's power tools, manufacturers can simultaneously drill, grind, cut, sand, and more - while collecting dust and debris straight from the source

MALVERN, Pa., June 27, 2003 - Industrial vacuum cleaner manufacturer Nilfisk-Advance America announces the availability of its complete line of power tools, designed for dust-free operation in demanding industrial and manufacturing applications. When integrated with Nilfisk-Advance America's vacuum cleaners, the power tools efficiently perform a variety of tasks - including grinding, sanding, scaling, drilling, and descaling - while simultaneously capturing dust and debris straight from the source, as it is generated. Please see attached fact sheet for product details.

"If you're sanding, drilling, or performing any other task that produces a significant amount of dust, you could have a serious safety problem on your hands - no matter what type of material you're working with," said Mike D'Agostino, product manager for Nilfisk-Advance America. "Our power tools were created to efficiently collect the dust created by composites, fiberglass, plastics, hard woods, lead-based paint, asbestos, concrete, slag, hazardous coatings, and just about any other material. Capturing this dust before it can circulate throughout the facility helps ensure a cleaner, safer environment for workers."

Nilfisk-Advance America's vacuum-assisted power tools are ideal for applications such as lead and asbestos abatement, boat and ship maintenance, surface preparation profiling, aircraft/vehicle repair and maintenance, non-skid coating removal, surface cleaning, metal/wood/composite cutting, and coating/paint/scale/rust removal. They are designed for applications ranging from lightweight, portable, single tool hook-ups to central systems with multiple operator drops. When integrated with HEPA*-filtered vacuum cleaners, Nilfisk-Advance America's vacuum-assisted power tools enable the safe collection of hazardous and toxic materials.

The Mini Die Grinder will accept most coated abrasive and surface conditioning products. It meets OSHA safety standards for the collection of hazardous dusts. Electric and pneumatic models are available.

Pneumatic Sander - For the sanding of aluminum and fiberglass, as well as finish sanding. The Pneumatic Sander features "through-the-pad" suction, which results in excellent dust control and increased visibility while working. Its ergonomic construction and vibration-minimizing design help reduce operator fatigue. The Pneumatic Sander is ideal for use with central vacuum systems.

Electric Sander - For coarse or fine sanding of medium and small surface areas. The Electric Sander is available in multiple sizes, as well as in random orbit, rotary, and triangle sander models, to meet virtually any application need. Its ergonomic design and quiet, low-vibration operation increase operator comfort. Additionally, the Electric Sander features a quick-release hook and loop fastening of sanding sheets for simple, efficient operation.

Roto Scaler - For the grinding, profiling, and cleaning of surfaces. The Roto Scaler enables operators to remove coatings within 1/4" of vertical surfaces. It can be used for concrete grinding, weld preparation, pipe cleaning, surface profiling, and surface preparation. With its interchangeable abrasive heads, the Roto Scaler can remove up to 1 50 square feet of paint per hour while achieving SP-1 1 cleanliness. It is available in electric and pneumatic models, and meets OSHA safety standards for the collection of hazardous dusts.
