CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels introduces Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels for use with metals, including stainless steel. The new line of Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels expands CGW's existing Quickie Cut line of cut-off wheels.
Using advanced technology, the flexible Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels cut 14 percent more than the best-producing cut-off wheels in the same category. Designed for enhanced free-cutting action, the new wheels require less effort while eliminating the wheel sticking in aggressive work pieces. In addition, the new wheels reduce stress on the work piece by causing minimal burning, and reduce the need for extra cleaning and/or deburring.
Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels for metal and stainless steel are type 1 shape, made from aluminum oxide grain with 60 grit size and are 0.035-inches thick. The new cut-off wheels are available in 4-½- and 5-inch diameters with 7/8-inch arbor holes. The wheels are contaminate free, containing less than 0.1 percent iron, sulfur or chlorine for rust-free and corrosion-free results.
The new Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels are ideal for work on thin sheet metals, metal and stainless fabrication, small cross-sections and steel reinforcements.
"The new Premium Quickie Cut Cut-Off Wheels are powerhouse cut-off wheels. We proudly offer a free test wheel program to help end users experience how effective these wheels cut," said Joe O'Mera, president, CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels.

- aluminum oxide
Aluminum oxide, also known as corundum, is used in grinding wheels. The chemical formula is Al2O3. Aluminum oxide is the base for ceramics, which are used in cutting tools for high-speed machining with light chip removal. Aluminum oxide is widely used as coating material applied to carbide substrates by chemical vapor deposition. Coated carbide inserts with Al2O3 layers withstand high cutting speeds, as well as abrasive and crater wear.
Shaft used for rotary support in machining applications. In grinding, the spindle for mounting the wheel; in milling and other cutting operations, the shaft for mounting the cutter.
Rotary tool that removes hard or soft materials similar to a rotary file. A bur’s teeth, or flutes, have a negative rake.
Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
- grit size
Specified size of the abrasive particles in grinding wheels and other abrasive tools. Determines metal-removal capability and quality of finish.
