PFERD precision files meet the most exacting standards of dimensional accuracy, cutting performance, and durability. Compared to machinist files, precision files are smaller, easier to handle, and more exact. They are used in jig, fixture, and tool making, specifically in mold and die fabrication (e.g., for punching, forming, forging and stamping in volume production environments). Precision files are designed for assembling and building complex devices and machines to the highest precision standards. PFERD's high-quality precision file assortment includes tanged files, needle files, handy files, riffler rasps, and riffler files.
