FABTECH 2016 – A Great Event for the PFERD Team!

Another FABTECH Expo has come and gone, and at PFERD we believe that 2016’s version was a huge success!  FABTECH’s importance in the fabrication, welding and finishing industries is reflected in the strong attendance both in number of attendees and in the vast number of geographical markets around the world visitors represented.  This year’s FABTECH drew attendees from 120 countries with a total of 31,110 visitors over the three day event.

FABTECH gives us at PFERD an invaluable opportunity to meet face-to-face with end users.  We had several visitors this year that brought their metalworking challenges directly to our booth.  Not only does this give us an opportunity to use our expertise to solve problems, but it provides us with an opportunity to see some of the unusual applications our customers deal with on a daily basis.

FABTECH is a premier venue for us to highlight the breadth of our portfolio and demonstrate the innovative solutions we bring to users.  Unique, innovative products such as our  CC-GRIND®-SOLID grinding disc, POLIFAN-CURVE® flap disc and DUODISC® cutting and grinding disc were featured in our grinding booth where visitors saw firsthand how these products perform in true applications, and the benefits these products bring to their everyday tasks.

While we are well known for our grinding, cutting and surface finishing applications with hand tools, our brush station gave visitors a first-hand look at our power brush solutions for industrial applications on CNC and robotic machines.  Work pieces and videos highlighted deburring applications with our M-BRAD® composite brush portfolio which focused on overall value through optimization of work processes was a primary focus of our message to visitors.

The PFERDVALUE® program  which highlights how our products and solutions address concerns with operator health and safety, as well as delivering cost savings and productivity increases really resonated with attendees.  A fun and interactive way we were able to demonstrate factors such as noise, vibration, haptics and emissions was with our interactive ERGOCUBE displays.  These displays gave a simulated physical experience of how PFERD’s products improve upon these key areas of concern for operators in the metalworking industry.

As PFERD is committed to being an innovative, solutions-oriented manufacturer, we look forward to interacting with both current and future end-users at the FABTECH show. It is an annual highlight of the imagination, innovation, and expertise of the PFERD team, and we can’t wait for FABTECH 2017!
