Powered by the Bosch CORE18V Battery Platform, PROFACTOR Delivers Next-Generation Power and Runtime to Tackle the Toughest Jobs
MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bosch Power Tools, a global leader for power tools and power tool accessories, today announced the release of its PROFACTOR high-powered cordless tools, powered by its exclusive CORE18V battery platform and equipped with Bosch BITURBO Brushless™ technology. Delivering power that outperforms its corded counterparts, PROFACTOR cordless tools give professionals the freedom to take on the most demanding applications on one battery platform.
“After thousands of hours of development, we are thrilled to cut the cord with this impressive line of professional cordless solutions,” said Corey Hinkel, Lead PROFACTOR Product Manager for Bosch Power Tools. “Offering more power and flexibility than corded tools, PROFACTOR simplifies jobsites by delivering a line of solutions designed for the industry’s most demanding applications – all powered by a single 18V battery platform.”
At the heart of this new high-powered cordless system is Bosch’s best battery technology – the CORE18V battery platform. It features advanced cell technology, cutting edge design and Bosch-exclusive COOLPACK™ 2.0 technology. With a design including copper end plates, welded cell connectors and power rails, the batteries provide reduced resistance and greater efficiency, allowing tools to draw higher currents from the battery. With the PROFACTOR-optimized CORE18V 8.0 Ah and the new PROFACTOR Exclusive CORE18V 12.0 Ah batteries, professionals can power the full PROFACTOR tool lineup from a single platform, eliminating the need for multiple battery platforms on the jobsite.
PROFACTOR tools feature Bosch BITURBO Brushless™ technology, which pairs a high-performance brushless motor and drive train system with powerful magnets and optimized in-tool electronics to take full advantage of the additional power generated by the CORE18V 8.0 Ah and 12.0 Ah PROFACTOR batteries.
