PFERD receives Innovation Award 2016

The Cologne Trade Fair (Koelnmesse) and the German Hard Goods Federation (Zentralverband Hartwarenhandel e. V. (ZHH)) present PFERD with the “EISEN 2016 Innovation Award” for the world first ALUMASTER High Speed Disc.

The world first announced beforehand proved to be a true innovation and impressed the jury straight away. Dr Peter Dültgen, one of the judges and Director of the German Tool and Material Research Foundation (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e. V.), explains the difference between the ALUMASTER and conventional grinding tools such as reinforced grinding wheels and flap discs, “The tool the jury awarded the prize for uses cutting inserts. I thereby do not generate dust, but defined chips!” The engineer holding a doctorate degree adds that this results in tremendous advantages in terms of health protection and explosion prevention and that an external extractor unit is no longer needed. He therefore concludes, “All in all, it is an innovative product!”

With more than 200 years of experience as a tool manufacturer and numerous innovations “engineered by PFERD”, the company once again demonstrates its position as a pioneer in the industry in 2016.

You will find more information about the PFERD world first ALUMASTER here or come and see PFERD at the International Hardware Fair in Cologne, 6 – 8 March 2016 · hall 10.2, booth F001.
