Ergonomic abrasive discs
- Published: July 8, 2018
Walter Surface Technologies has unveiled its new ErgoFlex abrasive disc.
Walter says the new disc offers a safer, more ergonomic, yet equally powerful alternative to traditional grinding wheels.
Combining a type 29 disc design and Walter’s proprietary Cyclonetechnology, ErgoFlex is designed for smooth weld blending on both flat and curved surfaces. It allows for a more comfortable working angle than type 27 depressed centre grinding wheels, along with cleaner, quieter grinding operations. With an aggressive 36 grit or higher abrasive grain blend, ErgoFlex removes material fast with minimal gouging risk.
“For manufacturing professionals looking to balance safety, ergonomics, and productivity, ErgoFlex is the perfect solution,” says Marc Brunet-Gagné, product manager of Bonded Abrasives at Walter Surface Technologies. “ErgoFlex offers the same power and speed as traditional grinding wheels, but with 95 per cent less dust, 50 per cent less noise, 50 per cent less vibrations, and better ergonomics. It’s also less likely to gouge materials, thus increasing efficiency and cost savings.”
Designed for heavy manufacturing, pipeline construction, metal fabrication, and other industrial needs, ErgoFlex is suitable for use in a wide range of grinding operations including grinding welded steel and stainless steel, heavy grinding, weld removal, and beveling.
