Zipwheel Cordless Cutter

January 01,2015

Walter Surface Technologies launches ZIPWHEEL cutter, a cordless cutter that can drive a 6" cutting wheel. The ZIPWHEEL cutter is specifically designed for metal workers who are consistently on-location without access to a power supply. This tool utilizes the latest battery technology and features an exclusive Ventilated Charging System.

The system comprises of an 18V/5.2Ah battery, allowing workers to perform more cuts between charges. In addition, the ventilated charging station quickly charges the battery while also extending its life by keeping it cool during the charging process. Similar to other Walter power tools, the ZIPWHEEL cutter provides efficiency and reliability as it leverages state-of-the-art technologies including DYNAMAX electronics for RPM control and consistent speed under load, bevelled gears to reduce noise, and a front retaining plate and rear bushing to prevent misalignment and reduce vibration.

"We've incorporated the latest technology to engineer the ZIPWHEEL cutter and produce this one of a kind heavy-duty and lightweight cordless cutter" said Stephane Drainville, Product Manager at Walter Surface Technologies. "This one tool will reduce downtime by allowing users to make more cuts between recharges. And with the Ventilated Charging System, battery-life is extended too. All of which leads to reduced production costs. Furthermore, with the ability to use a 6" cutting wheel on a cordless cutter, it will easily increase performance and production rate. It is the ultimate tool for on-location workers."

The ZIPWHEEL cutter is designed to be used with Walter's high-performance ZIP family of cutting wheels. By combining both products together, users have the perfect cutting technology in hand.

    Cylindrical sleeve, typically made from high-grade tool steel, inserted into a jig fixture to guide cutting tools. There are three main types: renewable, used in liners that in turn are installed in the jig; press-fit, installed directly in the jig for short production runs; and liner (or master), installed permanently in a jig to receive renewable bushing.
