Eccentric or random-orbit sanders


Lijadora excéntricas

Ponceuse excentrique

An eccentric sander is a tool designed mainly for fine sanding and finishing of surfaces and materials such as wood, metal, glass, and plastics. Usually it comes with a round sanding pad which is positioned off-centre on the drive shaft and which can rotate freely or with restricted guidance parallel to the surface.

With restricted guidance the removal rate is substantially increased and coarse sanding is made possible. With integrated dust extraction, adjustable electronic control and optional smooth starting , the random orbit or eccentric sander has many potential applications.
