PFERD christened its new abrasive grain VICTOGRAIN. “The precision-formed, triangular shape of the high-performance abrasive is one of the reasons for the grain’s superior performance,” explained Jörn Bielenberg, CEO of the Marienheide based manufacturer of solutions for work on surfaces and cutting materials.
The triangles of abrasive grain in the VICTOGRAIN are identical in shape and size, and their cutting edges are applied to the work piece at the optimum angle, meaning that each individual grain needs very little energy to penetrate the work piece. In this way, the user benefits from an efficient machining process with fast work progress, a long tool life and a reduced influx of heat into the work piece. In addition, a lower level of performance is required of the drive system:
“VICTOGRAIN products can even achieve their extremely high performance levels on commercially available angle grinders,” said Bielenberg. The triangles of abrasive grain in the VICTOGRAIN are fixed to the substrate on one of their sides. This means they are securely fixed in place and, together with their slim design, offer an extremely large chip space in order to further improve machining efficiency. The structure of the triangular VICTOGRAIN has also been specially adapted to maximise results. The very small crystals inside the triangles ensure optimum wear characteristics as sharp cutting edges are always exposed, although only the minimum amount of the abrasive grain or the triangle breaks off.
“VICTOGRAIN is among the most effective abrasives worldwide,” claimed Jörn Bielenberg, emphasising the strategic importance of the new high-performance abrasive. He added, “A series of comprehensive tests under a wide variety of conditions have demonstrated that it is vastly superior to conventional ceramic oxide grain, not to mention special derivatives and developments based on ceramic oxide grain.” This makes VICTOGRAIN an extremely promising proposition on the market: for PFERD and retailers in particular. “What’s more, VICTOGRAIN offers end users a level of profitability that provides a buffer in terms of costs, which is always crucial,” said Bielenberg.
VICTOGRAIN tools are available now as COMBICLICK fibre discs, COMBIDISC abrasive discs and midget fibre discs, CC-GRIND-SOLID and CC-GRIND-FLEX variants in a range of dimensions.
