Weiler Abrasives (Cresco, PA) has expanded its popular Tiger brand of abrasives to include cups, cones and plugs for metal fabrication, including fab shop, tool sharpening, pipeline, rail frog construction and shipyard applications. Tiger AO cups, cones and plugs are designed to deliver the right combination of performance and value. The aluminum oxide grains, along with a strong bond, provide a long product life and a consistent cut rate for grinding metal.
The Type 11 cup wheels for grinders are precision balanced to ensure smooth, vibration-free operation and reduce operator fatigue, while wearing at the appropriate level to maximize grind rates. An innovative safety nut locks in place to increase safety and prevent separation. Zinc-plating prevents oxidation, which eliminates contamination, and keeps threads clean for easy mounting and removal. The cup wheels are available in 4-, 5- and 6-inch diameters and are ideal for heavy metal removal, grinding, rough beveling and removing cracks or flaws.
