Walter Surface Technologies (Montreal, Quebec) aims to enhance productivity in metalworking shops with the launch of its redesigned Zip Wheel. The new abrasive disc offers even higher efficiency and better performance than its predecessor, says Walter, and has been re-engineered from the ground up. The new Zip Wheel is made with Walter’s proprietary grain blend, so the disc cuts faster than ever through steel and stainless steel, which helps reduce project times and increase productivity at job sites. Other features include:
- Increased rigidity, which allows for consistently straighter cuts.
- A patented reinforced rib design on each side that allows for cooler cutting, offering improved durability.
- Greatly improved lifespan, due to the new and improved bond matrix used in the manufacturing process. The company estimates these wheels will provide twice the cuts of other industry wheels.
- A reduced ecological footprint, by lasting longer and reducing the amount of dust it creates. The results are a more favorable work environment.
