Milwaukee, WI— PFERD INC., a global manufacturer and distributor of abrasives, brushes and power tools, will highlight its precision products and power tools as well as its PFERDVALUE® program in booth N2004 at FABTECH 2016, November 16-18, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. 

The company will present featured products from its comprehensive line of metal cutting and finishing products such as files, burs, brushes, grinding and cutting wheels and power tools with focus on its POLIFAN®-CURVE flap discs for rough and finish grinding applications and its thin cut-off wheels, among others. Integrated within the exhibit will be interactive demonstrations on PFERDVALUE®, a program addressing increased operator efficiency, health and safety as well as process optimization.

The interactive displays will allow visitors to experience the four cornerstones of PFERDERGONOMICS®… reduced vibration, noise and emissions and improved haptics, which increases operator comfort by reducing operator force and effort during metalworking applications.

PFERDEFFICIENCY®, the other component of PFERDVALUE® focuses on work-in-process to ensure cost savings and productivity increases. The thrust of the program lies in four basic tenets: Energy savings, waste savings, time savings and resource savings. PFERD offers innovative and high performance solutions that achieve results in the shortest time possible, save energy, generate less waste and contribute to higher productivity to maximize a user’s resources. 

The featured products in the exhibit will be POLIFAN®-CURVE flap discs, which bring significant advantages to rough and finish grinding applications. The unique and patented configuration gives POLIFAN®-CURVE three fully-usable working surfaces as opposed to the single surface of a conventional flap disc, making this tool perfect for grinding fillet welds as well as unusual curves.

The lineup of thin cut-off wheels ≤.045 in.) will also be featured. Thin cut-off wheels can substantially reduce vibration, noise and dust levels, as well as improving working conditions, all leading to increased productivity.
