Rupes Our history is composed of achievements, challenges, ideas, and international successes. In 1951 the RUPES 123 Stork is launched and instantly becomes an international hit that sparked the continued evolution of existing machine tools. In 1962 RUPES introduced the new TP/PC drill, the first tool in the world with body in technical polymer instead of a traditional cast metals. The new plastic material reduced tool weight and improved electric insulation, becoming an international standard. Moreover, this material improved the worker safety, since it creates a double insulating protection with low weight and excellent durability. Next RUPES revolutionized the world of sanding by launching the first electric random orbital sander, BR 8 in 1968. To preserve the user’s safety, a dust removal system was integrated in all the RUPES sanders and in 1974 the first electric palm sander was introduced: The LE 7, a machine designed single handed operation. 1985 marked the introduction of new vacuum systems, both centralized and mobile. These systems were aimed at the removal of dust generated in smoothing processes, and developed the RUPES “Energy Car”, the first mobile trolleys equipped with vacuum, designed to be easily moved around the workplace. In the year 2000 RUPES earned another star of excellence for the full assembly line automation of the electric motor manufacturing process. 2008 represented a revolutionary change for orbital polishing. The creation of the LHR 150 with its 10 mm diameter random orbital movement, a larger orbit than had ever been seen before in this application. 2010 Under the brand BigFoot, the bar was set even higher in the world of car finishing and detailing. This new system offered random orbital polishers with 15mm and 21mm orbits, forever changing how technicians would approach the process of polishing and refinishing.

Exclamation Press Release: The BigFoot word is spreading fast - Rupes Bigfoot on TV this Sunday

BigFoot Polishing System on TV

The BigFoot word is spreading fast.

RUPES S.p.a., producing professional solutions since 1947, is experiencing a success even bigger than expected as regards the BigFoot random orbital polishing system, a real spearhead among its tools.

After the very positive feedback from all around the world, this innovative method caught the attention of another media: German TV channel Pro7 will show professional users while using it, explaining its features and strengths; it is expected that about 2,9 million people are going to watch this event.

During the shooting of the programme, the two detailers, Alex and his wife Anja, were able to exploit all the potential of the BigFoot polisher, pads and abrasives on the super-car McLaren Mercedes SLR.

First of all they have the chance to present the new BigFoot Kit, which wraps all the elements for a perfect finish in a functional bag. They then go ahead working on the car clear coat and achieving the maximum gloss possible. Alex speaks enthusiastically about the whole process: RUPES BigFoot guarantees zero holograms, perfect finish and surprising shine with a significant reduction of time and complexity, turning out with excellent results also at the very first step. This innovative and handy system is making a revolutionary change in the detailing and car body shop world!
