Innovative Products of America (IPA) offers its #8150 4.5" diamond grinding wheel. The disc’s three-dimensional contour with topside abrasive coating and thin profile edge enables cutting, back cutting, gully cutting and bead finishing with one wheel.
Featuring a diamond-abrasive coating, the disc cuts fast and clean and maintains its size and shape throughout its long life, the company says. That means consistent reach and performance when dressing welds, accessing corners and more.
Advanced grinding equipment gives this shop the flexibility and automation it needs to serve customers with either rapid-response or high-volume jobs.
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.
The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.
