Weiler Corp.’s line of Tiger and Vortec flap wheels are designed for aggressive cutting action and increased productivity in a variety of industrial applications. Suited for medium- to high-production environments, Tiger wheels are said to offer a high cut rate and long life. Vortec flap wheels also offer a high cut rate, but are better-suited for low- to medium-production applications, the company says.
All of the company’s flap wheels feature a solid hub construction, enabling them to be rated at a higher rpm for improved performance and smooth, chatter-free finishing. Tiger and Vortec wheels can be used in a variety of applications, including cleaning, edge blending, deburring and mismatch removal on machined parts; smoothing metal, plastic and wood; final finishes on metal surfaces; and finish prior to painting and plating. The flap wheels also can be used for blending and finishing on dies, molds, tools, tubing and channels.
