Because resinoid bonded abrasive cutting wheels offer portability and affordability, they are popular for many hand-held metal cutting applications. Here are some things you must know about them and how they should be used to help extend their product life, benefit your operator safety, and improve your shop productivity and efficiency.
The complicated array of convolute wheels being used on the production floor can confuse operators who find it difficult to select the right one for their specific deburring or finishing job. But now a new system simplifies all of that, reducing lost time in selection and downtime due to rework, increasing cost savings through higher productivity.
Ideal for heavy grinding applications on even the toughest metals, this new grinding disc is at the forefront of abrasive technology, providing metal fabricators with more comfortable, ergonomic working conditions and the highest removal rate for steel and stainless steel.
Choosing the right equipment and consumables to grind a fine finish on stainless steel can get the job done faster with less operator fatigue. Here are nine ways to create a smooth surface in some typical finishing applications.
Typically caused by improper brush use or using the wrong brush for the application, long wire breakage does not fall under normal brush wear. It can be a costly problem that also poses safety hazards for operators and other workers in the area. Here are some ways to help prevent this issue so that you can get longer life and optimal performance from your power brushes.
Here are some insights on how to address the varying levels of surface finishing requirements that depend on industry demands and the eventual end use of the finished product.
Marc-André Aubé is their new president and chief operating officer.
Brian K. Kobylinski succeeds Jeffry N. Quinn, who remains chairman of their board.
Tim Lee is responsible for working with customers on their cutting requirements, particularly large diameter cutoff wheels.
Ideal for automotive, hydraulic, pneumatic and industrial applications up to 36 in, large diameter Flex-Hone tools from Brush Research Manufacturing can be run with virtually any rotating spindle, are self-centering, self-aligning to the bore and self-compensating for wear.
The unique abrasive structure of the advanced ceramic grain in PLANTEX CERAMIC flap discs from CS Unitec reduces heat when grinding to prevent heat discoloration on the workpiece, but provides maximum removal to save time and extend service life.
The Norton Red Heat R983 suite of abrasive belts and discs from Saint-Gobain Abrasives includes flap discs and quick-change discs that are ideal for a broad range of applications in welding, MRO, transportation and aerospace.
