Abrasive Cut-Off Wheel
Abrasive cut-off wheels are designed to give the user a fast, comfortable cut while providing long life and performance advantages over conventional products. They are ideal in metal fabrication, maintenance repair and general industrial applications.
Fixed-base cut-off wheels are used on fixed based machines where the work is securely clamped and the wheel adequately guarded, and the design of the machine is such that the cut-off wheel operates in a controlled cutting plane.
Wheels intended for use on masonry are made with a silicon-carbide abrasive, while metal-cutting wheels contain either zirconia or aluminum oxide, depending on their intended use. Silicon carbide is the hardest of the three types and aluminum oxide is the softest, a distinction that becomes important as a wheel is used and abrasive particles fracture to expose fresh cutting surfaces. Silicon-carbide abrasive particles are sharper and harder, and thus continue cutting efficiently on concrete or other masonry surfaces. A softer wheel would glaze over in this application due to the abrasive particles wearing down instead of fracturing.
