Cork Grinding & Polishing Wheels
The åtto KF711 Cork wheel range is suitable for the wet and dry grinding, polishing and centerless grinding of saw blanks, cutlery, turbine blades, as well as medical implants.
The åtto KF711 products offer a flexible bond while maintaining abrasive properties, thus offering a polished finish with excellent stock removal. Suitable on Manual, Automatic and Robotic machines.
The special composition of the KF711 allows the wheel to adapt to varying conditions without generating excess heat or loading.
Cork Centerless polishing wheels
åtto abrasives Cork Wheels uniquely combine the properties of natural cork particles and abrasive grits in a special rubber matrix.
This allows for a consistent finish with no material alteration along with the following benefits:
These wheels are perfect for the polishing and super-finishing of components such as:
- Taper Roller Bearings
- Shock Absorbers
- Hydraulic Piston Rings
- Steering Rods
åtto abrasives mounted points
The åtto abrasives mounted points for grinding and polishing applications do not load or smear and provide a consistent surface finish.
åtto mounted points are ideal for achieving a satin and polished finish. The points are suitable for de-burring, blending and mottling, as well as removing rough areas, small burrs and scratch marks and are an ideal choice for cleaning and defining grooves. For applications in stainless steel fabrication (dairy, pharmaceutical), automotive, aerospace, cutlery and jewelry sectors.
åtto abrasives Quick Change Discs (QCD`s)
åtto Abrasives is a leading manufacturer of rubber bonded precision abrasives. Part of our extensive rubber-bonded range are the QCD`s. These Quick-Change Discs provide exceptional grinding, deburring and blending flexibility in smaller areas. So you can accurately work around those tricky areas.
Their design makes fast work of disc changes to maximize your productivity. While they are highly effective for grinding and polishing of various metals such as stainless steel and Titanium.
Here at åtto Abrasives we offer a wide selection of approved specifications, and as always we can provide customisation specifications to meet any specific requirements that you way have.
