Vacuum Pumps for Woodworking

Becker Continues to Lead the Woodworking Industry with the VTLF 2.250 Vacuum Pump

AWFS 2017 / July 19-22, 2017 / Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

Becker Pumps Corp. Booth No. 9604

Becker exhibited at this year’s AWFS Trade Show (Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers) in Las Vegas. On display was the industry’s #1 vacuum pump used for CNC hold-down, the VTLF 2.250 oil-less vacuum pump, along with the Advantage-W woodworking system and new clear cover filters and cyclonic separators.

Becker also showcased drawings for their Maintenance Kits and cyclonic separators, everything required to increase the performance and longevity of Becker pumps.

Of course, the new VTLF 2.250 is oil and water free as expected. This pump includes an inlet filter with a surface 50% larger than our previous model; this will extend your maintenance interval.Visitors were able to see the reputable Advantage-W woodworking system incorporating multiple pumps, controls, and up to three stages of inlet filtration all stacked on a single frame that occupies no more floor space than a single pump. The Advantage-W system uses Becker’s venerable VTLF 2.250 vacuum pump … an updated version of the VTLF 250 which has been the mainstay of the woodworking industry.  Quieter and cooler running, the new VTLF is ideally designed for easy maintenance and the woodworking environment.

Another new feature is the Becker innovative clear cover filter technology which provides a visual indication of when the filters need cleaning. Features of the Becker VTLF 2.250 make it the clear choice for CNC vacuum hold-down!

The Becker Booth was Definitely The Place To Be

With signage throughout the Show Floor, the highest volume of visitors, both OEMS and end users, easily found Becker at Booth 9604 and they were not disappointed!

Becker is definitely the #1 Choice for CNC Vacuum Hold-Down and Best in Class in the Woodworking Industry! In addition to all of the equipment on display, Becker held a daily raffle to win a Maintenance Kit or cyclonic separator.  Special hammer tool gifts were given to anyone wearing a Becker T-Shirt sent out in advance of the Show … just as a thank you of customer appreciation!    AWFS was a great success for Becker and further solidifies their strong position in the woodworking industry.
