The Mirka Power Tools unit continues to set the pace for innovative design, powerful performance and clever features. The smallest battery driven spot repair sander on the market, Mirka AOS-B 130NV, designed in collaboration with the Swedish design company Veryday, has been awarded for high quality design in the discipline Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017.
The ergonomic design has been a priority and makes the sander easy to move from job to job and allows users to operate the product for a long period without fatigue, while delivering good control over the sanding process. The small and ergonomic tool also provides economical and consistent performance for the duration of the sander’s battery life, which can last up to 16 hours when used for spot repair applications.
