Rupes LHR 21ES

By Rupes

Characterized by its large Ø21mm orbit and Ø150 mm RUPES backing pad, the electric LHR 21ES random orbital polisher is perfect for working large surface areas. The perfectly balanced polisher, combined with the Ø150/180 mm foam polishing pads of the RUPES BigFoot range, guarantees rapid cutting and an impeccable finish.

RANDOM ORBITAL: the backing plate follows an orbit (the amplitude of which depends on the distance between the rotation axis of the drive shaft and the central axis of the backing plate). It is free to rotate about its own central axis. The backing plate is free to rotate at varying velocities and directions by the effect of the offset movement's centrifugal force and friction. Should the friction forces be such as to prevent rotation of the disc while the tool is still operating, the random orbital movement would become an orbital movement. The number of disc rotations is variable and independent of the number of orbits performed. Random orbital movement is, at present, the best compromise in terms of effectiveness and surface treatment quality.

The RUPES R&D and Design departments have paid particular attention to the design and ergonomics of the BigFoot polishers. The perfectly balanced machine body, the practical handgrip, the silent operation, and the minimum vibration are some characteristics that help make BigFoot the market’s most versatile and sought-after system.

The dual-function anti-spinning shroud is designed to protect the operator against the moving parts and act as a clutch for the backing pad, preventing further stress on the foam polishing pad when it is not in direct contact with the surface.

The speed controller on the handle is both practical and easy to use. The speed of the polisher can also be regulated during use, thus avoiding any interruption of the polishing operation.

Press the button on the LEFT-hand side of the handgrip while polishing locks the on-off switch. This allows the operator to move his/her hands freely to different gripping positions while the tool operates.

The attention to detail is not limited to innovative and attractive design. The modern lines and exceptional technical quality are combined with a number of details resulting from meticulous research aimed at achieving maximum operator comfort.
