Abrasive cutoff wheels are common in manufacturing. You will see them in car shops, construction sites, tool shops, medical manufacturing, and more.
If you don’t know what you’ve learned, they will be very dangerous. Fortunately, there are two ways to avoid disaster:
1. Clearly understand the safety of the grinder.
2. Choose the right abrasive cutoff wheel for the job at hand and the materials used.
The second part is more difficult because there are many types of abrasive cutoff wheels. But please don’t be disappointed, we can teach you all the knowledge you need to know!
Please read on for more information.
abrasive cutoff wheels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and each abrasive cutoff wheel has a different purpose. Some sharpen and cut, while others are polished and smooth.
The abrasive cutoff wheel shape you choose should match the application type.
Straight abrasive cutoff wheel
You can always see them. The most basic abrasive cutoff wheels are used in workshops around the world. They are most commonly used to sharpen tools such as chisels and lawn mower blades. You may be alone at home.
2. Large diameter abrasive cutoff wheel
Large diameter wheels are like straight wheels, but they are bigger. These wide surface wheels grind the exterior of a circular object such as a cemented carbide blank. It is also used for OD grinding, especially in the oil and thermal spray industries.
Large diameter abrasive cutoff wheels have a maximum manufacturing distance of 36 inches.
3. Wheel cup
One of the most common applications for grinding cup wheels is to polish stone or concrete. But as long as the grit is small enough, the cup-shaped abrasive cutoff wheel can do fine work, such as removing paint and removing adhesive.
In some applications, depending on the size of the abrasive, a cup-shaped abrasive cutoff wheel is typically used for resharpening and polishing.
4. Abrasive cutoff wheel
The dish-shaped abrasive cutoff wheel looks like a cup-shaped abrasive cutoff wheel, but it is shallow and has a thin surface. Their narrow shape allows them to fit into tight gaps, and the cup gear will never reach. Otherwise, they can be used for cup wheels.
5. Segmented abrasive cutoff wheel
Segmented wheels can be made in a variety of styles. 6A2, 1A1, 2A2T. The main difference of the abrasive cutoff wheel is that instead of a continuous abrasive rim, the abrasive section is divided and applied to the abrasive cutoff wheel. The ASA offers the following shapes – hexagonal, pelletized and fan shaped. Contact the ASA for a more detailed discussion.
When used with cooling or lubricating fluids, these grinders quickly remove large quantities of material without damaging the work surface. Each section creates a canal that uses centrifugal force to deliver fluid to where it is most needed.
6. Cutting surface abrasive cutoff wheel
The cutting plane wheel cuts into the object by grinding away the material. The width of the edging is usually very narrow and will fall off a lot at a time.
These precision tools can be used for everything from cutting tiles to shaping serrations.
The abrasive cutoff wheel uses abrasives such as diamonds and cubic boron nitride to abrade the surface area of the object.
The particle size determines the size of the abrasive. Finer abrasives can polish and sand the sand. The coarse abrasive is used for grinding or deburring.
