Very few manufacturing companies can say that they have more than two centuries worth of experience. Even
fewer can say that they’re still family-owned, and continue to offer the products that brought them success all
those years ago. Though PFERD’s product lines have grown considerably over the course of 200-plus years, they
have continued to manufacture the items that started it all—farrier files.
For those unfamiliar with German, PFERD actually means
“horse” in English. When the first farrier file was produced in
1799, its sole purpose was to maintain horses’ hooves. However,
PFERD’s file product line has grown considerably since then, and
many of the hand files and accessories are now used in a variety
of industries, from aerospace manufacturing, to pipeline development, even nuclear energy.
Currently, PFERD has a wide range of files available, which include, but is not limited to, wood rasps, machinists files, key files,
diamond files and car body files. One of the more innovative and
unique offerings include the CORINOX® file, designed specifically for use on stainless steel and exotic alloys. These files have a
Swiss pattern cut for precise removal, leave no corrosive residue
on the workpiece and resist loading, which is why they are some
of the best in the industry.
PFERD also has a premium line of diamond files, in which
diamond grit is electroplated onto precision-forged and ground
blanks. Diamond files are ideal for hardened steels and other
hard metal components when it comes to secondary deburring
and finishing applications after cutting, punching, press/extrusion
and profiling dies, as well as for filing workpieces made of glass,
ceramics, and fiber-reinforced plastics.
The company offers multiple resources to support its file
program. For challenging or unusual applications, where choos-
ing the right file might be an otherwise daunting task, PFERD has
created a useful product selection guide. This guide takes into
account the general application and material requirements of a
particular job and helps narrow down file options. Additionally,
PFERD has established itself as an industry leader in file design and manufacturing—customers around the
world TRUST BLUE for their filing needs. Visit pferdusa.com or contact customer service at (800) 342-9015 to
