Innovation ALUMASTER has won another award

At EuroBLECH, August Rüggeberg GmbH und Co. KG was presented with another coveted award for the innovative ALUMASTER High Speed Disc – the EuroBLECH award.

In the category of surface technology, the unique milling disc prevailed over a fully automatic belt grinding machine from Peitzmeier Maschinenbau and a machine for edge rounding from Karl Heesemann. PFERD was the only abrasive manufacturer that was nominated for the award. Heinz-Wilhelm Hans, Head of the PFERD branch office in Achim, accepted the award at the sheet metal working technology exhibition in Hanover.

“The EuroBLECH award will get a central spot in our PFERDAKADEMIE, right next to the EISEN 2016 innovation award and the gold medal for innovative products (ITM),” says Frank Henn, Head of Marketing at PFERD, proudly. “People and therefore also the topic of occupational safety are always at the focus of all our efforts. With the ALUMASTER High Speed Disc, we were able to solve a central problem in aluminium machining.”

Thus, Henn emphasizes a unique property of the innovative milling disc: It does not generate explosive or respirable dust, as grinding tools which have conventionally been used do. “The fact that our product is receiving such recognition now confirms that the intensive research and development work has been worth it,” he adds.

August Rüggeberg GmbH und Co. KG looks back on more than 200 years of experience and has advanced many products from an idea to a bestseller. The long-established company is always solution-oriented and full of ideas in the area of custom-made tools as well, which users from all over the wold appreciate.
