A cutting wheel is a wheel made from an abrasive compound used to cut through materials like steel and aluminum. When used with a die grinder, angle grinder or chop saw, the wheel spins at a fast rate. As the cutting disc spins, the sharp abrasive removes stock from the metal work-piece being cut. The result is a cutting action that's both fast and precise.

Using innovative technology and state-of-the-art equipment, we manufacture a range of high-quality bonded cutting wheels to help your company work more efficiently and gain a competitive advantage in your industry.

Industries like food processing, automotive and pharmaceutical manufacturing use our cutting wheels because of their ability to streamline common cutting tasks while keeping workers safe and costs manageable.
To get the most utility out of your cutting wheels, you need to find options that meet your application requirements. Choosing the right cutting disc helps ensure your safety and maximize your efficiency. At Weiler Abrasives, we will work closely with you to identify the best cutting wheel for your business. Some of the factors our knowledgeable experts consider when making a recommendation include the material you want to cut, the thickness of work-piece, the space you have available, and the type of grinder you will use with the cutting disc.
From small wheels for die grinders to large wheels for gas saws, chop saws, and stationary saws, we manufacture cutting wheels in a range of diameters and thicknesses, which makes it easy to find an effective option for your application. With the right size cutting wheel, you can complete jobs faster and avoid the frustration and safety hazards that come with using the wrong equipment.
Thinner cutting wheels tend to remove less material during a cut. Thicker wheels remove more material, but they also tend to last longer. When selecting a wheel, always choose the thinnest wheel that will perform the cut while maintaining desired product life.Our cut-off wheels range in thickness from 0.035 inches to 3/32 inch, and in diameter from 2 inches to 14 inches.
Selecting the best wheel type for your application increases wheel effectiveness and user productivity. There are the two types of bonded cutting wheels commonly available today. Type 1 cutting wheels, are flat to allow for deep, straight-on cuts. The second type is a depressed center wheel, commonly called type 27. The type 27 depressed center provides additional clearance when working at constrained angles.
Both types of cutting discs have their uses, and your personal preference may influence your decision. If you are not sure which type of wheel will improve your operations most, our team can discuss your project and help you evaluate the options.
