When you require more torque or high precision to get the job done, Dremel has the tool for you.
Power meets precision with the Dremel 9100 Fortiflex heavy duty flex shaft tool. The Fortiflex is designed to be the ideal rotary tool for people engaging in detailed projects requiring both power and precision. The tool’s powerful 2.5 amp(1/5 HP) motor provides high torque at low speeds making it perfect for power-carving, shaping, and grinding applications. Its flexible shaft includes a patented bearing system for durability and cool operation during extended use. The precision handpiece is engineered for control and comfort and its three-jaw chuck enhances versatility by accepting accessories with shank sizes from 0 to 5/32-inch. The Fortiflex is controlled with a variable-speed foot pedal and allows you to match tool speed to the application, hands-free.
Powerful 2.5 amp motor (1/5 HP)
A powerful motor does more than deliver power. The robust 2.5 amp motor on the Fortiflex provides the required solid torque at slow speeds and its ball bearing construction ensures smooth running and a longer life. In addition, a powerful motor runs cooler and more efficiently because it’s not being taxed by the loads being placed on it. The result is that Fortiflex shines when it is called upon in wood carving and similar high torque applications that require both a delicate hand to add a subtle flourish or added control, yet deliver the sustained power to remove hardwood or drill metals.
Variable-speed foot pedal
Look Ma, no hands! Dremel has put all the speed control of Fortiflex right there on the tip of your toe so that your hands are free for doing the important stuff. With a speed range of 0 to 23,000 rotations per minute, you can match tool speed to your work for optimal results. In low speeds, use the Fortiflex for sanding, drilling, and using bristle brush accessories. Use higher speeds for cutting, carving, engraving, and polishing applications.
Because the motor is suspended on a hook during use, your primary interaction with the Fortiflex is its precision handpiece. Made of aluminum for durability and light weight and machined to exacting tolerances, its mere 1 inch diameter fits comfortably during extended periods of use, and its cylindrical shape feels good in either the right or left hand. A grooved handpiece provides added grip for a steady, secure feeling to enable detailed, precise work.
The three-jaw chuck holds bits securely and accommodates any size accessory with a shank size up to 5/32-inch (4.0 mm). This ability to accommodate many sizes of bits lets you use a wide variety of accessories to accomplish numerous applications.
Heavy-duty flex shaft
Added control for precision jobs is one of the greatest advantages of the flex shaft because it removes the weight of the tool from the user’s hand. The flex shaft delivers the power of the motor to the handpiece, so we’ve designed it to stay cool with the use of an exclusive bearing system that reduces friction and minimizes vibration. Fortiflex is a flexible flex-shaft. With a length of 36 inches and a bend-radius of 6 inches, this flex shaft can reach around tight corners and into hard-to-reach areas making it ideal for woodcarving, drilling, engraving, polishing, and more.
For those of you who own the previous Dremel heavy duty flex shaft tool or flex shaft tools made by other popular manufacturers, Fortiflex can accept the handpieces used on those tools. Allowing handpiece interchangeability provides you with a wide range of comfort choices and lets you maintain the investment you’ve already made in flex shaft handpieces.
