Becker Pumps at IWF Tradeshow 2016

Vacuum Pumps for Woodworking

Becker Continues to Dominate the Woodworking Industry with the VTLF Pump

IWF 2016 / August 24-27, 2016 / Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA

Becker Pumps Corp. Booth No. 5455

Becker exhibited at this year’s International Woodworking Fair (IWF) in Atlanta. On display was the industry’s go to workhorse, the VTLF oil-less vacuum pump, Advantage-W woodworking system and new clear cover filters and cyclonic separators. Becker used the IWF show to launch their new Maintenance Kit, everything required to increase the performance and longevity of Becker pumps.

Woodworking Vacuum Pumps

Of great interest to visitors was 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 trusted and highly popular VTLF 2.250 vacuum pump.

The VTLF 2.250 is an updated version of the VTLF 250 which has been the mainstay of the woodworking industry. The new VTLF is quieter and cooler running with features designed for easy maintenance and the woodworking environment.

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.

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 vacuum hold down!

The Becker Booth: The Place To Be

This was the most successful IWF show with the highest volume of visitors both OEMs and end users than ever before. As part of the new Maintenance Kit launch, Becker held a daily raffle to win a highly-coveted Becker “Authentic” pocket tee, hat and a free Maintenance Kit. When visitors registered for the daily drawing, they received a coupon for 20% off a Maintenance Kit. Special show deals resulted in sales right at the booth.

This show was a great success for Becker and post show activity is indicating a very strong 2017 for the woodworking industry.

Becker is definitely the #1 Choice for Vacuum Hold-Down and Best in Class in the Woodworking Industry!
