Producing decorative surfaces
With ceramic abrasive grain, it is possible to produce a striking grinding finish.
High material removal rate and minimal depth of roughness with long service life
Ceramic abrasive flaps ensure optimal end results
Ideal in confined spaces
Easily resettable synthetic resin core for best results in confined spaces without damaging work piece being machined.
Flap wheels achieve optimal performance at a recommended cutting speed of 15–20 m/s. An ideal compromise between the removal rate, surface quality and temperature load of the work piece and the service life of the flap wheel. The maximum permissible rotation speed (min-1) must never be exceeded for safety reasons. Flexible shafts, electric and pneumatic straight grinders can be used as tool drives.
Service life and heat development:
The low contact pressure and circumferential speed increase the service life of the flap wheel and minimise the temperate load on the work piece.
Increasing the removal rate should be achieved by switching to a rougher grain rather than increasing the contact pressure.
High cutting speeds with low contact pressure produce fine roughness. Increasing the contact pressure with low cutting speed increases the depth of roughness. The softer the material to be machined, the greater the depth of roughness (when using the same grain size).
Safety is only guaranteed if the clamping length is 15 mm and the specified maximum rotation speed for open shaft lengths is not exceeded. Follow general working and safety precautions.
