FabTech 2017

FABTECH 2017 - November 6th through 9th, 2017 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois

For 65 years, Walter has been developing high performing, leading-edge products for metal fabrication, welding, and finishing. The technology and solutions being displayed at this year’s FABTECH underscore Walter’s underlying commitment to help fabricators meet the ever-changing needs of the industry and their customers.

Walter will be holding interactive live demonstrations of their Surfox™ electrochemical weld cleaning system and will be performing hands-on trial sessions of their industry-leading Zip Cut™ cut-off wheel, Xcavator™ anti-vibration grinding wheel, and will showcase new products including the E-Weld Plasma™ anti-spatter solution and the cost-effective Flexsteel™ zirconia alumina flap disc line. The following innovations will be on display at the Walter booth B35013:

Surfox™: Walter will be displaying three completely redesigned Surfox™ weld cleaning systems, the Surfox™ 305, the 205 and the Surfox™ Mini. The 305 and 205 use an electrochemical process to clean and passivate welds on stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium. The redesigned machines are exceptionally powerful, rugged and replaces time-consuming manual operations such as mechanical abrasion or extremely hazardous solutions like pickling paste.

Like the larger versions, the redesigned Mini has been engineered to allow operators to clean TIG or spot welds on aluminum as well as stainless steel. This unit features a compact, lightweight design that makes it ideal for field work such as equipment repairs, installation or touch-up work.

Flexsteel™:The newest addition to Walter’s trimmable flap disc line, Flexsteel™ is a multi-purpose flap disc designed for high stock removal, rough blending and deburring. Flexsteel™ features a specially engineered zirconia alumina abrasive grain blend that self-sharpens with less pressure. FABTECH visitors that stop by can see the Ford Mustang that they could win by participating in the Test Drive Flexsteel™ and Take Home a Mustang contest.

Surfox™: Walter will be displaying three completely redesigned Surfox™ weld cleaning systems, the Surfox™ 305, the 205 and the Surfox™ Mini. The 305 and 205 use an electrochemical process to clean and passivate welds on stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium. The redesigned machines are exceptionally powerful, rugged and replaces time-consuming manual operations such as mechanical abrasion or extremely hazardous solutions like pickling paste.

Zip Wheel™:The new Zip Wheel™ has been re-engineered from the ground up, offering even higher efficiency and better performance than its predecessor, making it the top cut-off wheel in its class. Experience the power of the Zip Wheel™ that offers faster, cooler, freer cutting, while resisting twisting and bending.

E-Weld Plasma™: E-Weld Plasma™ is a ceramic anti-spatter solution that is applied to laser and plasma cutting tables to reduce the buildup of slag. By using a new arm-mounted applicator, users can quickly and easily coat large surface areas. This simple preventative measure significantly decreases the amount of time needed to clean slag off cutting tables, which translates into significant cost savings for fabricators.

FABTECH attendees will experience Walter’s demo stations and product displays in its 1,000 square foot booth and have the opportunity to meet our team of application experts. Visitors who come by the Walter booth will learn about new products and productivity programs that can positively impact their business.
