Wagner Launches Revolutionary FLEXiO® 890 Portable Paint System

Spraying with more control and less fatigue and featuring self-contained storage

MINNEAPOLIS, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The FLEXiO 890 is the newest addition to the FLEXiO family of indoor/outdoor paint sprayers that helps DIYers paint for longer periods of time with less fatigue. With the X-Boost® turbine housed in the base, which stays on the floor, the sprayer is lighter and perfect for longer projects: a group of interior doors, a set of lawn furniture or even a long hallway.

Tackle a gamut of painting projects: indoor or outdoor, large surfaces or detailed work. The patented iSpray® nozzle sprays any coating and is ideal for painting broad surfaces. The nozzle is designed to turn thick paints into a controllable pattern with even coverage for painting wide areas fast. A Detail-Finish nozzle is included for small projects and fine finishing.

Apply any type of paint, from unthinned interior and exterior latex to oil-based paints, stains, sealers, and urethanes: The FLEXiO 890's X-Boost turbine provides three times the power of traditional units, providing the power needed to atomize paint for a smooth and even finish with any type of paint, even unthinned interior latex paint. Three controls  – for airflow, spray pattern and material flow – all on the handle for making quick adjustments for desired results.

"We designed the FLEXiO 890 to make spraying less tiring over long periods of time," said Jon Beaton, Wagner product manager. "Our goal was to help consumers get their indoor or outdoor projects done quickly and with great results."

Change easily from one color or type of paint to another: Two nozzles and two paint cups come with the FLEXiO 890's Lock-n-Go system. A simple click and twist allow for the gun and cup assembly to be easily removed, allowing quick color or material changes.

Enjoy comfort and ease of use: In addition to helping reduce fatigue when spraying broad surfaces, the FLEXiO 890 is 50 percent quieter than traditional, airless sprayers and comparable to a hairdryer.  

Clean up and store easily:  The FLEXiO 890's nozzle and cup are quick to detach and easy to wash. For storage, the X-Boost Turbine is housed inside the sturdy "X-Boost Power Box," which also accommodates the hose and nozzle assemblies when not in use. 

"With controls for the speed of air flow, width of the spray and fan pattern, the FLEXiO 890 can be used to paint broad interior surfaces without concern for overspray – and without the tedious effort associated with brushes or rollers. Prep work only requires basic masking," said Beaton. 

MSRP for the FLEXiO 890 is $199 and available at home improvement stores and found on the retailer's online store. Visit wagnerflexio.com for additional information on FLEXiO products, and

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
