“When redesigning our CP872 standard die grinder, we had in mind the increase in power, but overall efficiency was our primary target, in order to make the best use of compressed air resource in workshops. That is why we optimized it by increasing the power by 56% up to 0.6hp, while reducing at the same time the air consumption by 21%. All in all, this means you can work faster and easier, while saving on the compressed air cost.” Says Lucas Bryk, Global Product Marketing Manager at Chicago Pneumatic tools.
