Find PFERD at PRI 2017

From December 7-9, 2017, racing leaders from around the world will converge at the 30th annual Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show at the Indiana Convention Center  in Indianapolis. For racing professionals, this is the premier event to learn about new products and industry trends.

Unlike consumer-focused auto shows and race events, PRI brings together manufacturers, distributors, fabricators, and professional race teams and representatives. This gives everyone a chance to see what types of new products and services are available, and gives buyers a chance to update their supplier list. Because all attendees have a professional stake in the event, there are more opportunities for meaningful business connections.

PRI 2017 looks forward to hosting more than 1,100 exhibitors in over 3,400 booths. Suppliers will show off recent advancements in automotive racing products and in the motorsports industry as a whole. There will be numerous networking and educational opportunities, with conferences, seminars, and other events taking place around the Indiana Convention Center that week.

Visitors can find us in the Yellow Hall, at Booth 5443.  We’ll have our full product offering on display, highlighting some unique products especially useful for

Grinding Discs
POLIFAN CURVE radial flap discs

fabricators in the auto and racing industries.  Products such as our POLIFAN®-CURVE – the patented radial flap disc that lets you easily grind those challenging fillet welds, our CC-GRIND® SOLID,  a super-aggressive grinding wheel that’s hard to beat, our 3” cut-off wheels for fast, easy cuts and our unique High Performance carbide burs that quickly remove high amounts of stock and come in material specific designs for materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and cast iron.

To learn more about the show and to register, visit PRI 2017 online. Also be sure to follow us on Twitter before or during the event for updates! We look forward to connecting with you at the show!

Improve Productivity with PFERD’s Specially Designed Carbide Burs

PFERD’s High-Performance line of carbide burs offers what an ordinary bur can’t. Designed for specific applications on specific materials, these burs deliver optimum performance and value.

These burs offer the advantages of reduced overall cost with reduced consumption, and maximum material removal, which all contribute to their superior cost-to-performance ratio.  

Many of the burs in this line are uniquely designed for outstanding performance on some of the most commonly machined metals:

  • STEEL Cut for Steel and Cast Steel: Delivers maximum performance with smooth but aggressive operating action. High stock removal leads to significant time savings while lower thermal loads protect the work piece.
  • INOX Cut for Stainless Steel: Innovative tooth geometry enables outstanding stock removal and longer tool life to achieve high-grade quality finishes when processing Austenitic and Duplex Stainless. Yields up to 100% increase in stock removal and generates less heat preventing material discoloration.
  • CAST Cut for Cast Iron: Provides very good chip removal, up to 100% when compared with conventional cross cut burs, with significantly increased aggressiveness. Less vibration and noise leads to smooth milling operation.  
  • ALU/NF Cut for Aluminum and Non-Ferrous metals: ideally suited for coarse machining, these burs generate high stock removal in material such as aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper, bronze, and brass.

Application specific burs that deliver unique benefits in the areas of increased productivity are also included in the high performance program:

  • EDGE cut for Edge Profiling: A complete system that is ideal for edge beveling, radiusing, and chamfering that saves time in process piping, plumbing, and pump design applications.
  • MICRO cut for high surface finish : Ideal for both hand-held and automated machining tasks, this unique solutions combines good stock removal and a very fine surface finish, reducing labor time in secondary finishing applications.

Our goal at PFERD is to offer “single-source” solutions for hand finishing, grinding, cutting, and specialty applications. With this High-Performance line of carbide burs, we offer material-specific burs that result in increased productivity and user comfort.
