High Speed Buffer:
There are several types of buffers popular today with the professional
detailer. The first is the rotary high-speed buffer. Ranging from
below 1000 RPMs to 3000 RPMs, most have a variable trigger device in
order to regulate speed. This is the most popular machine of any shop,
but care must be taken in order to prevent too much friction and ďburn
ď the paint.
This machine requires skill to operate, but once the operator becomes
proficient, it is a very effective and time saving tool. The most
common attachment for this machine is the hook & loop backing plate.
Secondary attachment system is the old style connection device: the
bolt on rubber plate.
Random Orbit Buffer:
The next machine used in the reconditioning process is the random
orbital machine. RPM ranges vary, but this machine creates a movement
like a planet on a lopsided orbit. The movement does not build up as
much heat like a rotary buffer so itís safe in the hands of a
beginner. However, it canít replace the high-speed buffer because it
canít cut as aggressively. Random orbitals are commonly used with
smaller foam pads during the finishing stage.
Professional Gear Driven Buffer:
The orbital rotation of this innovative polisher simulates the
circular movement of the human hand while polishing. At the same time,
the polisher's highly smooth running facilitates a careful, precise
finish and even offers what is necessary for hologram-free polishing.
That's just what this polisher, with its ergonomically designed knob
handle, was made for.
The positive drive ensures a uniform movement, even under load, thanks
to constant lift. Taken in conjunction with the large stroke length
there is also the possibility of removing existing holograms from
black finishes. Thanks to the direct orbital drive, very little heat
develops on the surface, which is ideally suited to
temperature-sensitive finishes. The accelerator trigger switch and
speed selection allow for a controlled acceleration to the optimal
speed. Note: the machine's orbital movement has been optimally adapted
for the special back pad included with it.
