GOF 1600 CE Professional
Bosch is expanding its range of routers in the 1600W class: the Precision Plunge Router GOF 1600 CE Professional is designed especially for cabinetmakers, joiners, shopfitters, window builders or interior fitters. With its transparent sub-base and LED lighting, it allows for a clear view of the work surface and router bit, enabling precise work results. When performing plunge cuts with router bits in the shank range of 8 to 12 mm or when working on edges, its powerful motor with Constant Electronic offers sufficient power reserves for fast and constant work progress even under load. The plunge capacity of 76mm ensures high flexibility in all demanding routing applications.
A particular advantage of this new precision plunge router is the 'After-Lock' fine adjustment. This enables a routing depth that has already been locked to be readjusted in a 1/10mm range saving time and enabling high precision.
The tool also offers a reinforced column holder in the base plate for a precise plunge function, and has a spindle lock. Its flat housing cover allows the router to be easily stood on its head to enable fast router bit changes or easy adjustment work.
GMF 1600 CE Professional
The GMF 1600 CE Professional is a powerful plunge and fixed-base router with 'Trigger Control'. Bosch offers the Plunge and Fixed-Base Router GMF 1600 CE Professional as an alternative version to enable optimum tool control for copying work. The â€œTrigger Controlâ€ â€“ a switch system in the handle â€“ is unique to combination routers and enables professional tradesmen to guide the tool perfectly from the beginning. This is a major advantage for the user, because until now all combination routers always had to be switched on at the motor housing, meaning that one hand had to be taken off the handle to start the tool.
The GMF 1600 CE Professional offers the widest range of applications among hand-held routers, while simultaneously offering a high level of convenience. Its 1600-watt powerful motor can be fitted tightly in both the plunge unit and the fixed-base unit using an SDS locking system. The fixed-base unit can also be used in semi-stationary router tables.
Further advantages of the GMF 1600 CE Professional include, as with the GOF 1600 CE Professional, 'After-Lock' fine adjustment, transparent sub-base, LED lighting, reinforced column holder in the base plate, spindle lock and flat housing cover for easy router bit changes and adjustment work.
These Bosch routers will be available at Bosch stockists from July 2012 and come complete with a high-quality, fine-adjustment parallel guide, and dust extraction accessories.
