The SG Blaze and TwinStar flap discs feature Quick Trim, a flexible, easily trimmed plastic back plate that enables full use of the flaps to reduce material and labor costs. BlueFire flap discs feature zirconia alumina plus abrasives for an increased cut rate and longer life compared to conventional zirconia products on carbon steel and weld. Merit Metal abrasives use an engineered blend of two high-performance zirconia products to provide a good starting specification when price is a primary consideration, the company says.
The company’s SG Blaze Rapid Strip non-woven, right-angle discs feature SG ceramic alumina grain for faster cutting and increased life. They are suited for stripping rough rust and scale off of metal parts while remaining flexible enough to avoid gouging the base material, the company says. Vortex Rapid Blend right-angle discs feature a high-performance engineered grain and improved resin bond system, providing aggressive, fast stock removal and a fine finish in deburring and blending operations.
BlueFire depressed center wheels are an upgrade from the company’s Charger line and feature a combination of the SG and Norzon grains. They range in size from 4" to 9" with thickness ranging from 1/8" to 1/4". Depressed center wheels are designed to handle the most severe right-angle grinding applications, from heavy stock removal and rough blending to notching/cut-off.

The grinding machine features a grinding spindle mounted on maintenance-free hybrid roller bearings for high peripheral speeds of as much as 150 m/sec., and in combination with the machine’s CBN high-speed technology, cycle times and setup times can be significantly reduced.
