Flexovit Has Introduced a NEW Patent Pending Product – CAPSTONE™

Flexovit USA, Inc. has introduced CAPSTONE™ – a new, patent pending, cupwheel alternative!

Capstone™ is a grinding wheel designed as an alternative product to Type 6 and Type 11 cupwheels. It is designed to be used on the same tools and applications as non-reinforced cupwheels but is fully reinforced for maximum safety.

The Capstone™ has a fast metal removal rate with less pressure, and without gouging the work surface. 

Capstone™ wheels fit completely under Type 11 guards.  They are built with 4 full layers of high tensile fiberglass reinforcement for maximum workplace safety.

Telegraph Road Race

August 12, 2018 – Herman Van Leeuwen hosted the 7th annual Telegraph Road Race at Flexovit USA, Inc. in Angola, NY. Herman is the MIS Supervisor at Flexovit and is a member of the Checkers Running Club. Each year he hosts the Telegraph Road Race at different locations, and each year donations raised go to a charity of his choice.

This year, Telegraph Road Race raised $1,400 from 60 runners for Footsteps of Western New York. Footsteps of Western New York is a foundation to help children and adults who suffer from cerebral palsy.

The objective of the Telegraph Road Race is to listen to “Telegraph Road”—a song by Dire Straits—for 14 minutes and 18 seconds and run as far as you can.

This year’s male winner was Christopher Smykal with a distance of 2.5 miles, and this year’s female winner was Sabrina Quiros with a distance of 1.93 miles!

Once the Telegraph Road Race came to a finish, Flexovit’s plant manager Bob Riehle gave a tour of the manufacturing facility, and Josue Natal, the grinding test technician, gave a grinding demo to conclude the event.

Congratulations to everyone who participated and helped an important cause!
