The world's best tools for sanding curved surfaces
The pneumatic flexible orbital sander FS 42070 A is a unique, worldwide patented pneumatic flexible sander specially designed for sanding curved surfaces. The sander has a connector for an external dust extraction system and is equipped with speed control.
With this sander you can quickly and easily sand ideal curves and surfaces. Due to its size and high flexibility, this type of abrasive plate is particularly suitable for sanding smaller or medium-sized surfaces or surfaces with low radius of curvature. Abrasive plate is especially suitable for auto body repairs, shipbuilding and repairs, production of furniture, models and composite industry.
The sander is designed for sanding concave and convex surfaces. The sanding paper is fastened with Velcro. The abrasive plate is torsionally flexible.

Sanding CURVED surfaces is demanding
The main reason is because unlike a wall, ship or car bodies are not flat. They are curved. Unfortunately, ordinary tools are not. With a rigid spatula or a rigid sander, you can notice that it is connected only partly with the surface. More curved the surface is, smaller contact between spatula or sander and your material is. This means uneven layers of filler and badly sanded surface. If you do it ruthlessly, your material suffers. If you want to do it precisely, you sooner or later understand, that you do not have enough time to make it perfect.
See a test that shows our principles:
Sanding curved surfaces without the right tools is hard! The operator needs to be a very skilled person because every bad move can cause an unevenness or damage.
It is also very time-consuming activity which is in other words very expensive for companies. No wonder companies like Boeing, Delphia yachts or Škoda Auto use our products.
What the right tools do for you?
- Save a lot of time
- Save costs of a material
- Versatile usage
- Eliminates the human factor
- Perfect result every time
When surface quality is on the first place
The first concept of FLEXISANDER/FLEXICAT tools was developed by Petr Froněk, INNOVIA company founder, during the construction of steel yachts. The basic idea was to develop a tool that would greatly simplify and facilitate the process of very difficult filling and sanding of hulls.
Based on these requirements, a special flexible board has been designed, which is evenly pressed against the filled or sanded surface by means of a plurality of levers. By doing so, it simply creates the desired ideal convex or concave curved surface.
Already during primary testing, significant time savings have been achieved, with the perfect surface quality. Additionally, the tools fundamentally eliminate the so-called human factor.
The first inspiration was for all the well-known and generationally proven car wiper principle. This simple and worldwide everyday principle has been successfully used in the design of the entire FLEXISANDER range of flexible hand-held and machine-driven tools such as control bars, filing plates, hand sanding plates and sanders.
