Bosch recently announced their new PROFACTOR 18V high-powered cordless tool line. The new system uses their exclusive CORE18V batteries and equipped with BITURBO Brushless technology. PROFACTOR is specifically designed with professionals in mind so they can tackle the toughest jobs around the worksite.
Bosch PROFACTOR CORE18V Battery
The PROFACTOR system is a combination of Bosch’s CORE18V battery platform and the cutting-edge BITURBO Brushless motor. The CORE18V battery system features the most advanced technology in the industry. The 21700 battery cell technology produces higher currents for a longer period of time. Copper endplates, welded cell connectors, and power rails reduce resistance and maximize efficiency. Therefore, tools can draw higher currents from the battery longer.
There are three types of CORE18V battery packs available from 4Ah, 8Ah, and 12Ah. Bosch PROFACTOR tools are fully compatible with any existing 18V battery, but work best with the two larger batteries. The 8Ah battery will maximize the efficiency of the tool and provide a charge for most or all of a typical work day. The 12Ah pack is a new addition to the CORE18V battery line. Unlike the 4Ah and 8Ah, the new battery only works with PROFACTOR tools.
BITURBO Brushless Technology
Few cordless options provide the power needed to tackle higher-end construction, such as concrete, metal, plumbing, and more. The PROFACTOR’s BITURBO Brushless technology is engineered to offer cordless solutions on tough job applications. The brushless motor, drive train, and optimized in-tool electronics take full advantage of the additional power generated by CORE18V 8.0 Ah and 12.0Ah PROFACTOR batteries.
Complete System Cooling
Working on tough projects creates heat, which is the number one enemy of cordless solutions. That heat pushes the tool and battery too hard, creating performance concerns, ultimately resulting in lost efficiency. PROFACTOR’s Complete System Cooling alleviates any heat problems. BITURBO Brushless technology dissipates heat out of the tool, so the motor and high-powered electronics stay cool. COOLPACK 2.0 Technology removes heat from the battery. As a result, there is better conduction for a cooler battery. Finally, the Hell-Ion Turbo Charger with Power-Boost mode and active air cooling allows for faster charging. It does this by moving heat away from the battery during the charging process.
