June 1, 2015 11:19 AM

Michigan City, IN (06/2015) – The AWFS®Fair is a showcase for the woodworking industry’s newest advances. It’s also the place to find one well-established mainstay of the industry – DEKKER Vacuum Technologies. DEKKER is a major supplier of vacuum pumps, systems and solutions for woodworking manufacturers around the world.

DEKKER will exhibit at Booth 10140 of the AWFS®Fair 2015, produced by the nonprofit Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers®, to be held July 22 – 25 in Las Vegas.

DEKKER provides vacuum solutions for a wide range of wood and plastic applications, including:

  • CNC Routing
  • Drilling
  • Engraving
  • Laminating
  • Milling
  • Polishing
  • Thermoforming
  • Veneering

DEKKER’s Vmax™ and Vmax VFD™ oil-sealed liquid ring vacuum pump systems, featuring the Titan series™ liquid ring pump (capacities from 35 to 5,000 CFM) are the only systems on the market with a full 3-year warranty. The systems are sawdust tolerant handling carryover of soft solids without damage to the internal parts of the pump, because they feature grease-lubricated external bearings isolated from the pumping chamber and no metal-to-metal contact inside the pumping chamber. Titan pumps tolerate sawdust and other contaminants far better than other vacuum pumps. For larger capacity pumps, the Maxima-K series pumps feature capacities up to 39,000 CFM.

Rodney Weeks, DEKKER Regional Sales Manager for the West Coast, and Jay Dressander, DEKKER Director of Sales, will host the booth.

“DEKKER always benefits from having a presence at AWFS,” said Dressander. “Networking with top woodworking professionals and company representatives allows us to stay on top of the latest trends and innovations in the industry. We return with insights and information that drive our gold-standard service.”

“DEKKER’s vacuum pumps and systems continue to be the heavy-duty solutions that woodworking and furniture-making operations demand,” said Weeks. “Also, there is an emphasis on plastics and the plastics fabrication market at this year’s AWFS®Fair. DEKKER is a core resource for the plastics industry as well.”

AWFS®Fair 2015 will be attended by thousands of woodworking manufacturing professionals from around the world for an in-depth presentation of the latest advances and developments in the industry. It’s a one-stop opportunity to network, learn and acquire relevant information, strategies and solutions to make their operations more competitive and more profitable.

The AWFS® is the largest national trade association in the U.S. serving the entire home and commercial furnishings industry.

DEKKER also provides DuraVane™ 100% oil-free (dry) rotary vane vacuum pumps and systems (capacities from 2 to 100 CFM) and DuraVane™ lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps and systems (capacities from 2 to 710 CFM) designed for woodworking, vacuum chucking and lifting applications.
