Walter Surface Technologies’ New Heavy-Duty Ironman™ Grinders Built for the Toughest Jobs, Exceptional Performance

Windsor, CT, May 24th, 2018 – Walter Surface Technologies, the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, has introduced the industry’s hardest working heavy-duty grinders: the Ironman™ and Ironman™ PS.

Designed for strenuous, prolonged use, the Ironman™ and Ironman™ PS feature an ergonomic rat-tail design, perfect balance, 1,750 watts of power, 6-inch wheel capacity, a QUICK-R™ instant release function, and the Walter Stabilizer™ that reduces vibration and extends the life and productivity of abrasives by up to 30%.

The Ironman™ PS offers the same durability and high performance as the Ironman™, but with added safety features. Its “deadman” switch and mechanical brake stop grinding wheels from turning within 2 seconds of relieving the trigger, and cutting wheels within 1.5 seconds, thus minimizing workplace risks and offering users even greater safety.

“The Ironman™ and Ironman™ PS grinders are our most powerful, most productive heavy-duty grinders with 6” wheel capacity,” says Ryan Boyd, Product Manager of Tooling and Power Tools at Walter Surface Technologies. “Their physical design, power, and cutting-edge features make them the perfect tool for the most demanding jobs—and the best heavy-duty grinders in the marketplace.”

Built to meet the large-scale needs and exacting standards of the aerospace, military, naval, energy, transportation, and other industries and sectors, Ironman™ heavy-duty grinders can be used in a wide range of grinding and cutting operations.
