Walter Surface Technologies’ New ErgoFlex™ Abrasive Discs with Cyclone™ Technology Transform Grinding Operations

June 13th, 2018


Walter Surface Technologies, the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, has just unveiled its new ErgoFlex™ abrasive disc—a safer, more ergonomic, equally powerful alternative to traditional grinding wheels.

Combining a type 29 disc design and Walter’s proprietary Cyclone™ technology, ErgoFlex™ is designed for extremely smooth weld blending on both flat and curved surfaces. It allows for a more comfortable working angle than type 27 depressed center grinding wheels, along with cleaner, quieter grinding operations. With an aggressive 36 grit or higher abrasive grain blend, ErgoFlex™ removes material fast with minimal gouging risk.

“For manufacturing professionals looking to balance safety, ergonomics, and productivity, ErgoFlex™ is the perfect solution,” says Marc Brunet-Gagné, Product Manager of Bonded Abrasives at Walter Surface Technologies. “ErgoFlex™ offers the same power and speed as traditional grinding wheels, but with 95% less dust, 50% less noise, 50% fewer vibrations, and better ergonomics. It’s also less likely to gouge materials, thus increasing efficiency and cost savings.”

Designed for heavy manufacturing, pipeline construction, metal fabrication, and other industrial needs, ErgoFlex™ is suitable for use in a wide range of grinding operations including grinding welded steel and stainless steel, heavy grinding, weld removal, and beveling.

ErgoFlex™ abrasive discs with Cyclone™ technology are now available.
