Mirka’s AOS-B cordless sander, the smallest battery driven spot repair sander on the market, has been awarded the ‘Product Design’ prize at the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards. The award recognises the ergonomic, high performance and longevity of the product, delivering tangible benefits to end users in the automotive industry.
This is the second time Mirka has won a Red Dot Design Award after its Mirka® DEROS sander, which launched in 2012, was awarded the ‘Red Dot Industrial Design Award’ in 2014.
The judges for this year’s award were particularly impressed with several of the Mirka® AOS-B’s features including its lightweight ergonomic design that allows the tool to be moved easily from job to job and to be used for long periods of time without experiencing fatigue, and the sander’s consistent performance for the duration of its battery life, which can last up to 16 hours when used for spot repair applications.
Craig Daycock, managing director of Mirka UK, says, “We’re delighted that the AOS-B has been recognised with the Red Dot design award. This win highlights our continued commitment to invest in the design and development of tools at our R&D department in Jeppo, Finland to provide our customers with the highest levels of performance, productivity and versatility.”
