TYROLIT’s patented technology eliminates backlogs caused by sanding, helping to increase productivity by as much as 90%.
TYROLIT POWER is a sanding system that uses abrasive strips to prepare surfaces. Particularly industries that need to sand large surfaces such as the manufacturing of wind turbines, aerospace and shipbuilding are profiting from this technology.
Traditionally, hand-held orbital sanders are used to sand large surfaces. This entails hours of manpower and large amounts of waste. In one case study, it took eight men 64 hours to sand one section of a wind-turbine blade mould using orbital sanders. TYROLIT POWER was able to complete the same section in just 8 hours with one operator.
Although sanding costs can be dramatically reduced, the main benefit of TYROLIT POWER is its ability to increase the speed of the production process. This helps manufacturers to reduce backlogs caused by work-intensive sanding and fewer backlogs means more production.
Additionally, TYROLIT POWER has raised the benchmark for health and safety. The device reduces dust while offering an ergonomically friendly solution to sanding. Moreover, White finger syndrome, caused by continuous use of vibrating hand-held machinery—such as an orbital sander—is no longer an issue. This debilitating condition can lead to loss of feeling, reduced dexterity and severe pain in the fingers. Due to the design of TYROLIT POWER, white finger syndrome can be eliminated providing a care-free solution for both operator and employer.
“Rarely does a product come along that truly changes the way we do things. TYROLIT POWER is one of those products,” says Johnny Nelander – Product Manager for TYROLIT POWER. “A leading manufacturer of wind turbines has completely replaced their old sanding methods with TYROLIT POWER, saving them millions of Euros and reducing backlogs in their production.”
