Experiencing new X-LOCK tools at first hand


Participants around the globe participate in product launch

(Burgwald, Wunsiedel)

Osborn and Dronco have developed tools for the new X-LOCK angle grinder system from BOSCH. The portfolio includes cutting and grinding discs, flap wheels, cup brushes, bevel and wheel brushes and diamond cutting discs. The patent pending new products were shown in action for the first time as part of a presentation and application demonstration, with experts on hand to answer questions.

Simple system, safe and quick assembly
Osborn and Dronco are partners selected by BOSCH to develop accessories for the new X-LOCK angle grinders. Thanks to the new system, accessories such as the cutting discs and brushes produced by Osborn and Dronco can be mounted quickly and easily to these new angle grinders. Compared to conventional angle grinders, it is up to 5 times faster to change accessories. An audible "click" indicates that the accessories are securely engaged. Errors are practically eliminated, because accessories requiring a specific rotational direction, such as diamond discs, can no longer be mounted incorrectly. Even protruding nuts are not a problem with X-LOCK angle grinders.

Compatibility with conventional angle grinders
The X-LOCK tools from Osborn and Dronco are backward compatible, i.e. they can also be used on conventional angle grinders. This is useful when there is no X-LOCK angle grinder available on site.  There is no need for a second tool set. The backwards compatibility of Osborn brushes is also unique worldwide (patent pending).

Particularly stable
The Dronco cutting discs are manufactured especially for safety. The metal rings are sandwiched between the glass fiber fabrics and bonded to the discs to form an extremely resilient connection within the cutting disc (patent pending). This production process guarantees the highest possible stability and safety.    



Presentation with live stream
Osborn and Dronco presented the new X-LOCK tools near Wunsiedel at a VIP event in May of 2019. The easy handling and performance of the new products was be demonstrated in application demonstrations. The invited guests were also able to try their hand at using the tools themselves. A tour of the Dronco production facility, discussions with sales and application experts and an evening program rounded off the event for the international guests.

Sales launch in May
The X-LOCK portfolio of Osborn and Dronco will become available starting May and will evolve further according to customer orders. A brochure with all products is available and can be downloaded.
