POWER MEETS PRECISION WITH THE NEW DREMEL® FORTIFLEXTM HEAVY DUTY FLEX SHAFT TOOL

The new-to-market Dremel 9100 Fortiflex heavy duty flex shaft tool provides high torque at low speeds, perfect for power carving, shaping and grinding applications.

MT. PROSPECT, Ill. – January 1, 2014 - The Dremel brand is introducing a powerful new rotary tool to its line—the Dremel 9100 Fortiflex. The Fortiflex heavy duty flex shaft tool is designed specifically for users engaging in detail projects requiring both power and precision. The tool's 2.5 Amp (1/5 HP) motor and flexible shaft make it great for power carving, woodworking, jewelry making and metalworking projects. 

"Since the discontinuance of the most recent Dremel flex shaft tool, Dremel users have called for a rotary tool with more power, but without losing precision and detail,  and the Fortiflex is just that," said Ed Pchola, Director Product Marketing. "The new Fortiflex tool combines power and precision in one tool, perfect for users who require a tool for detail work."

The tool's flexible shaft includes a patented bearing system for durability and cool operation, and the precision hand piece is engineered for control and comfort even with extended use. The flexibility of the shaft resists kinks and accepts most standard hand pieces. A variable speed foot pedal also allows users to match tool speed to the application.

 

Power and Precision

  • The tool features a powerful 2.5 Amp motor that delivers the required torque at slow speeds, while running smoothly and ensuring a longer life.
  • The heavy duty flex shaft adds control to precision projects, as it removes the weight of the tool from the user's hand.
  • A variable speed foot pedal frees up the user's hands, and boasts a speed range of zero to 23,000 RPM.
  • A three-jaw chuck holds the bit securely and accommodates any size accessory with a shank size up to 5/32" (4.0 mm).
  • An interchangeable hand piece is compatible with previously offered Dremel flex shaft tools. Made of solid aluminum for durability, the precision hand piece features a grooved grip for a steady, secure feel.

Catalog Number: 9100-21

The Dremel 9100 Fortiflex heavy duty flex shaft tool is available at select industrial and woodworking tool retailers nationwide, for an MSRP of $239 USD.
