Tool safety is critically important to FEIN. It’s one of the reasons the company has been a leading power tool manufacturer for more than 140 years. Customers trust the world-class company to produce high-quality tools that will allow them to be more productive and work safe.
Safety is always top of mind when the company designs and produces its power tools, including its range of grinders. Available in compact, large and die grinder varieties, FEIN grinders have a reputation for offering robustness, durability and safety, which is why they are used for many applications in industries from foundries and steel fabricating to shipbuilding.
For example, its new Rat-tail grinders feature an ErgoGrip handle, which offers better grip and control, resulting in greater safety. It also offers the ideal handle configuration, reducing operator fatigue. In addition, the ergonomic handle provides maximum grip contact between hand and machine, which allows the Rat-tail grinders to be operated safely on every application. The Power versions also feature integrated safety interlock switches to prevent the tool from starting on its own following a power outage. Other safety features include soft-start, overload and jam protection. The non-slip adjustable safety guard also provides additional safety for the operator.
FEIN’s GSZ line of die grinders also offer many ergonomic and safety features. For example, the grinders’ low vibration and ErgoGrip handle help reduce operator fatigue and injuries. The die grinders are extremely smooth running with a secure hold and control because of the ergonomic design.
The FEIN Fillet Weld Grinder KS 10-38 E features an anti-vibration handle to help reduce injuries. It also includes an adjustable spark guard to keep the operator safe from sparks and debris.
Meanwhile, the company’s line of large angle grinders feature a soft-start for safe handling, fully adjustable safety guard and rear adjustable handle to provide maximum control and safe use of the grinders.
There are many more examples of how the company has integrated best-in-class safety features into each and every one of its tools.
