Walter Surface Technologies has released its Zip Titan and Chopcut Titan abrasive cutting disks designed for cutting titanium and brass with exceptional efficiency. Both the Zip Titan and Chopcut Titan are made with a silicon-carbide-based formulation to prevent the materials being cut from overheating, the company says; keeping the metal cooler helps to preserve the mechanical properties and surface integrity of titanium and brass.
The products are both said to offer a longer lifespan than other, similar disks. The company explains that the efficient cutting action of the wheel prevents it from overheating, which is the number one risk for cutoff wheels. These disks are intended to provide more cuts per wheel as well as faster and freer cuts, increasing job productivity and lowering costs.
The Zip Titan is part of the company’s Zip family of cutting wheel products designed for cost savings through longer tool life and more cuts per wheel. The Chopcut Titan belongs to the Chopcut family of products, designed for performance cutting on portable chop saws.
