Mirka® AOS-B Cordless Sander Wins Red Dot Design Award

The Mirka AOS-B 130NV has been awarded the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017.

The AOS-B 130NV is a 1-1/4” 3mm orbital sander, while the AROS-B 150NV is a 1-1/4” 5mm random orbital sander. These tools feature rechargeable Lithium-ion battery technology, which allows the battery to recharge in just 40 minutes or less and can last for up to 16 hours of use.


The AOS / AROS tools excel in sanding tight areas and corners while providing comfort for longer periods of sanding without fatigue, and delivers outstanding control over the sanding process. The AOS / AROS provides consistent performance and speeds can be adjusted from 4,000-8,000 rpm. The quick-lock system makes changing the backing pad fast and easy. Mirka has an extensive line of abrasives for the AOS / AROS tools for woodworking, industrial and automotive applications.


The internationally organized competition “Red Dot Design Award” appraises the best products of the year. In order to appraise the diversity in the field of design in a professional manner, the Red Dot Award breaks down into the three disciplines: Product Design, Communication Design and Design Concept. With its origins dating back until 1955, the award is organized by Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen and is one of the best-respected design competitions in the world.
