Wagner’s new generation of airless guns
Recently launched at FARBE AUSBAU & FASSADE fair in Germany, Wagner’s new range of Vector airless guns are packed full of state of the art spray gun technology for the professional painter.
Ergonomically designed for comfort when spraying and designed with an extra light trigger pull, the Vector guns are a revolution in comfort and control and are also designed for peak performance.
There are two guns in the range, the Vector Pro and Vector Grip, and both are suitable for use with water and oil based paint products.
The Vector Pro is ideal for use with a wide range of paints, stains and lacquers, while the new lighter trigger and one-touch trigger lock are two advantages of the new gun design. The ergonomic handle has been redesigned for easy cleaning, with extra-large grooves and sits comfortably in the hand with the addition of a hand rest. The new swivel design rotates easily for better manoeuvrability, while a built-in filter wrench makes gun filter changes quick and easy without the need for additional tools.
Interchangeable grips and second trigger
In addition to the advantages of the Vector Pro, the Vector Grip includes numerous other improvements for the user. In an industry first for airless spray guns, the Vector Grip has ergonomically designed interchangeable handle grips. This allows the user to customise the grip and contoured palm support to suit the size and shape of their hand.
This also enhances comfort, while decreasing fatigue when spraying. The grips are available in three different sizes with the medium size coming as standard with the gun.
Another added bonus with the Vector Grip is the addition of a second trigger. The grip comes complete with a four finger trigger and two finger trigger. For painters accustomed to spraying with a four finger trigger, they may find that the new ultra-light trigger pull on the Vector Grip (30 per cent lighter) ensures that spraying with a two finger trigger is a more natural fit to the hand. Spraying has never been easier.
The Vector Grip has a much longer service life than comparable guns. The robust packings, arotatable ball seat, removable ball and spring assembly that is isolated from the material flow, all guarantee extra longevity and exceptionally low costs on wearing parts. Now users can get twice the life out of the gun by simply reversing the seat and changing the ball. Added built-in hooks also allow the gun to be easily hung almost anywhere during work breaks, including a chair, ladder or scaffolding.
Wagner’s engineering and design teams were rewarded with the Vector guns recently being nominated for a prestigious German Design Award for 2017. The German Design Award recognises innovative products and designers who are leading the way in the German and international design scene.
“The Vector product line is taking airless spray technology to the next level. The ergonomics and extra-light trigger offer ground-breaking improvements for the user, whose needs were the main focus during development,” product manager at J. Wagner GmbH, Owen Baker said.
