Walter Surface Technologies’ New ErgoFlex Abrasive Discs with Cyclone Technology Transform Grinding Operations

Windsor, CT June 13 th, 2018 – Walter Surface Technologies, the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, has just unveiled its new ErgoFlex™ abrasive disc—a safer, more ergonomic, equally powerful alternative to traditional grinding wheels.

Combining a type 29 disc design and Walter’s proprietary Cyclone™ technology, ErgoFlex™ is designed for extremely smooth weld blending on both flat and curved surfaces. It allows for a more comfortable working angle than type 27 depressed center grinding wheels, along with cleaner, quieter grinding operations. With an aggressive 36 grit or higher abrasive grain blend, ErgoFlex™ removes material fast with minimal gouging risk.

“For manufacturing professionals looking to balance safety, ergonomics, and productivity, ErgoFlex™ is the perfect solution,” says Marc Brunet-Gagné, Product Manager of Bonded Abrasives at Walter Surface Technologies. “ErgoFlex™ offers the same power and speed as traditional grinding wheels, but with 95% less dust, 50% less noise, 50% less vibrations, and better ergonomics. It’s also less likely to gouge materials, thus increasing efficiency and cost savings. ”

Designed for heavy manufacturing, pipeline construction, metal fabrication, and other industrial needs, ErgoFlex™ is suitable for use in a wide range of grinding operations including grinding welded steel and stainless steel, heavy grinding, weld removal, and beveling.
