Substance used for grinding, honing, lapping, superfinishing and polishing. Examples include garnet, emery, corundum, silicon carbide, cubic boron nitride and diamond in various grit sizes.
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.
Stringy portions of material formed on workpiece edges during machining. Often sharp. Can be removed with hand files, abrasive wheels or belts, wire wheels, abrasive-fiber brushes, waterjet equipment or other methods.
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.
Weldcote introduces its new, high-quality Slitter INOX-Prime grinding wheels that offer excellent cutting speeds per cut with minimal burr and a smooth finish.
Weldcote Slitter wheels are available in 4-1/2-inch and 6-inch sizes with a standard 7/8-inch arbor hole. Designed for precise and quick cutting on high-quality steel, these thin abrasive wheels constructed of high-quality, mono-crystallized grain are manufactured in Germany using a patented manufacturing process.
“Due to the world-class, patented German manufacturing process, these new slitter wheels that we offer are the highest quality, contaminate-free wheels on the market,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “Our Slitter wheels provide a precise and quick cut.”
Suitable for applications on carbon-based steels and stainless steel, Weldcote Slitter wheels are contaminant free and offer excellent work finish without altering the work surface. They are ideal for use in aeronautical, nuclear and food industries.
