High removal grinding wheel
- March 11, 2014
Xcavator is a new high performance grinding wheel from Walter Surface Technologies designed for demanding grinding jobs in fabrication shops.
Tested on some of the world's hardest resources, including tungsten carbide, tempered steel, Inconel, Hardox, and Boron steel, Xcavator's aggressive, coarse front layer of enriched Zirconium grain has gone through rigorous testing to help deliver the industry's highest removal rates, claims the company.
The grinding wheel features a strong disc base/backing for more powerful and aggressive grinding action. It also features Walter patented UHR multi-layer manufacturing technology to prevent edge flakiness, keeping the wheel edge symmetrically round for more safety and longer life.
"Today's demanding fabrication environments require the utmost in power when it comes to grinding wheel technology and Walter has developed the new Xcavator to deliver this. Grinding represents a major part of shop costs and Xcavator stands tall as a heavy-duty grinding wheel that helps save time, save money and is built to last," says Jean-François Dubois, director of marketing, Canada, Walter Surface Technologies.
Created for use with powerful grinding machines, it removes more than 30 per cent more grams per minute compared to other ultra high removal wheels, while at the same time absorbing vibrations, allowing this durable wheel to cost-effectively outlast all other grinding wheels in this category, according to the company. Free of materials such as iron, sulfur and chlorine, the grinding wheel is virtually guaranteed not to contaminate surfaces such as stainless steel, claims the company.
