Weiler’s line of bonded abrasives deliver consistency and performance to Metal Fabrication professionals. This high quality line includes cutting, grinding and combination wheels that are available in performance tiers, offering a choice between long life, fast cut, or both.
Cutting wheels play a vital role in productivity and profitability, especially in large-scale metal fabrication operations. At Weiler Abrasives, we make cut-off wheels you can count on when your customers are counting on you.
Our cut-off wheels offer incredible versatility. In our extensive selection, you will find cutting wheels tailored to these challenging industries and applications:
When constructing or repairing a pipeline, professionals need cutting wheels capable of performing well in harsh conditions and lasting over long periods of time. Weiler Tiger Aluminum Oxide depressed center cutting wheels deliver the right combination of performance and value when cutting steel and other metals. The depressed center provides added clearance when working at a constrained angle and .045 wheel thickness is ideal for cutting applications in fab yard or field repairs.
Our cutting wheels support fabrication shops by providing aggressive cut-rate and long wheel life. Whether you are working with aluminum, armored steel, high-nickel alloys, Inconel®, steel, stainless steel, titanium or tool steel, we have a cutting wheel designed specifically for the job at hand.
In shipbuilding, nearly every component needs fabrication — from the ship's large external structures to smaller pieces like pipes, stairs and handrails. While automation can assist with the manufacture of larger structures, smaller structures require cutting and grinding by hand before and after welding. Our cutting wheels help shipbuilders get the job done quickly and safely so you can meet tight deadlines.
No matter what type of product you manufacture, you must consider precision and cost at every step of the process if you want to satisfy clients and stay ahead of the competition. Our high performing cut-off wheels improve operational efficiency and drive down costs.
Keeping facilities up and running is more than a full-time job. You need a cutting wheel that can perform on a variety of demanding applications because the project is different each day. At Weiler Abrasives, we also understand that holding up a repair because you don't have the right cutting wheel is unacceptable. We'll work hard to get you the products you need whenever and wherever you need them so you can keep your facility running smoothly.
For stainless steel cutting applications in the food processing and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries, we offer contaminant-free cutting wheels. These abrasive products contain less than 0.1% sulfur, chlorine and iron.
Abrasive cut-off wheels can complete a wide variety of challenging tasks. However, for a cutting wheel to perform its best, you need to put it to work in an appropriate application. Choosing the right type of cutting wheel helps ensure operator safety and maximize productivity. At Weiler Abrasives, we manufacture a range of innovative cutting wheels, so you can find an option that meets your expectations for:
By offering plenty of options, we make it possible to find the best cutting wheels for your business. Our knowledgeable team members will work closely with you to identify a wheel capable of solving your operational challenges, giving you a competitive edge.
Different cut-off wheels work with different tools. For the best results and safe operation, it's important to choose a cutting wheel for the tool you plan to use that fits the tool you are using. Always compare the maximum RPM's on your cutting wheel to the RPM rating on your grinder. Never use a cutting wheel when the grinder RPM rating is higher than what the wheel is rated for.
Die grinders are versatile, handheld rotary tools capable of performing a variety of tasks with the right attachments. Ideal for precision work, these small tools run on compressed air, power cords, or battery power. When used with portable cut-off wheels, die grinders can cut through metal efficiently.
An angle grinder is a popular power tool used for cutting, grinding and polishing applications. The head of the angle grinder sits at an angle to the drive shaft, which is how these tools get their name. Although right angle grinders are small enough to handle easily, they offer enough power to tackle difficult cutting applications.
A chop saw cuts by moving up and down, not side to side. With a cutting wheel from Weiler Abrasives, you can use your chop saw to create straight and precise square cuts.
Unlike portable saws, which you can take with you to any job site or location, stationary saws come fixed to a base, making them productive tools in fabrication shops and industrial facilities. Stationary saws provide more power than portable alternatives and make it easier to measure cuts. When used with a stationary saw, our abrasive cutting wheels can help you cut pieces for fabrication quickly and accurately while minimizing safety risks.
Two of the power tools most commonly used with our cutting wheels are die grinders and angle grinders. Both of these handheld tools allow operators to cut metal and other hard materials from anywhere. However, angle grinders and die grinders perform better in different applications.
Die grinders are relatively small devices best suited to precision work and tasks in tight spaces. Angle grinders, on the other hand, provide more horsepower than die grinders, making them ideal for deep cuts and tough materials. Though they rotate more slowly than die grinders, the larger surface area of an angle grinder cut-off wheel means these tools cut faster.
Die grinders and angle grinders both have their place in your workshop. If you're not sure whether your application will most benefit from a metal cut-off wheel for an angle grinder or a die grinder, the helpful team at Weiler Abrasives will give you the assistance you need to make the right call.
