Every machine shop is graded by its tool selection. You might have the nicest belt sander in the world, but that won’t help you finish metal products. To create a good workshop, a variety of abrasive products is the key solution. Choosing the right abrasive products can mean the difference between a finished job and a job that still needs some work done. We sell two types of flexible grinding wheels that can polish your metal tubing to shiny perfection.
Our flexible grinding wheels can give any metal a nice look. The type-27 flexible FAC grinding wheel comes in two different sizes. The smaller wheel will not cover as much ground as the larger one, but it will give you better control. This is nice for tubing metal. The small wheel measures 4-1/2″ x 1/8″ x 7/8″. The larger version measures 5″ x 1/8″ x 7/8″. This tool can grind and finish at the same time. When your production rates are already slipping, these can save you precious time. These tools do not require any loading or glazing, either. Both wheels have available grits ranging from 36-80 densities. Get a variety of grinding discs so you can always have one on hand.
If you are looking for a safer work atmosphere, check into our plantex flap discs. These are made from a backing plate which is made from pure HEMP. Polypropylene is then used to bind it to the wheel. Not only will you be safer using a tool like this, your workbench and products will be as well. There are no fiberglass or epoxy resins to worry about with these types of discs. They can be repaired as well as any other type of disc. Just check out our variety of disc sizes to pick the right one for your shop. We have some special cool top discs that are fantastic for stainless steel applications. They will not leave burn streaks on your finished products.
