Bosch Announces X-Lock Interface for Fast, Simple Grinder Wheel Exchange

Bosch X-Lock Interface Makes Fast, Simple Grinder Wheel Exchange a Snap

Advanced interface makes accessory change up to 3x faster than conventional interface

Mt. Prospect, Ill., Jan. 14, 2019 – Bosch is the acknowledged leader in development of professional interface systems for power tools – interfaces so technically advanced that they’ve become industry standards. Today, the company has added another breakthrough to that impressive history with the introduction of the X-Lock interface for grinders.

Bosch metal-cutting and grinding abrasive wheels with the X-Lock mount offers a wheel change that’s three times faster than conventional interfaces. X-Lock wheels are ejected with a lever pull and firmly connected without the need for a spanner wrench or flange nuts. An audible snap tells the user that the wheel is installed securely on the tool.

“X-Lock promises to bring another level of performance and ease of use for trade professionals who rely on a grinder to get the job done each day,” said Anastasia Llamas, channel/product manager, Bosch Power Tools. “Of all the interfaces that Bosch has created (e.g. SDS, jigsaw, oscillating), the angle grinder interface has proven to be one of the most intricate. But the innovative design of Bosch X-Lock addresses the need for functionality greater functionality in a go-to jobsite tool.”

The X-Lock accessories not only provide faster change-out for grinders with X-Lock mounts, but most are backward compatible with standard 7/8 In. mounts. High-quality wheels will cover core grinding applications including but not limited to bonded discs, flap discs, wire wheels, and diamond blades.
