Weiler Abrasives has expanded its offering of small-diameter cutting and snagging wheels for high-speed die grinders to include Tiger AO, Tiger Zirc and Tiger Ceramic. These 2" to 4" diameter wheels are designed for long life and fast cutting. The 38-item expansion provides end users in the metal fabrication and ship building industry with increasing levels of cutting performance to choose from. The Tiger wheels are available with ¼" and 3/8" arbor hole sizes.

Tiger AO cutting wheels feature an aluminum oxide grain and are said to provide even, sharp, clean cuts. A hard bond extends wheel life when cutting steel. Like the Wolverine wheels, Tiger AO wheels are available in thicknesses of 0.035", 1/16", 1/8" and ¼".

Tiger Zirc cutting wheels have a thickness of 0.035". The wheels feature sharp zirconia alumina grains that are said to retain a high cut rate throughout the life of the wheel, making them an ideal choice for cutting steels as well as cast iron.

Even on stainless steel and hard-to-grind metals, Tiger Ceramic cutting wheels’ self-sharpening grains reduce discoloration by cutting at lower temperatures with less friction and less effort, the company says. The wheels are available in 1/16" thickness.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.
