B&J Rocket Introduces the ERGO-Line of Buffing Tools


B&J Rocket has announced that it is expanding its range of buffing tools with a new line that now features rounded buffing surfaces compared to B&J Rocket Unit Wheels with straight buffing surfaces.

New Buffing Tool Range Launched

"The new ERGO-Line shows all its advantages when used with a hand grinder," says Sales Manager Fredy Walther. "Thanks to the rounded grinding surface, the hand grinder can be held much more ergonomically and is therefore easier on the wrist when working on the inner liner."

In addition, the ERGO-Line is more flexible in handling since the rounded surface on the inner liner can be worked on more efficiently with the rounded buffing surface. This makes the buffed surface even, and buffing grooves are avoided.

The cooling of the tools has also been improved: a large number of cooling holes not only increases the performance of the buffing tools due to reduced buffing temperatures, but also significantly extends tool life.

The ERGO-Line of buffing tools from B&J Rocket can be supplied with all grits on request. B&J Rocket recommends tools with a grit of 23 especially for inner liner work.
