Basic Knowledge of Abrasive Wheel Products

Posted by on March 26, 2021 in Education

In the industrial world of engineering for cutting and grinding it must use a tool often called abrasive wheel. Abrasive Wheel is widely used in metalworking workshops. Small, medium to large home industries such as automotive, shipping, metal mills, construction, oil and gas, and aviation. For mildsteel iron, steel to stainlees steel certainly adjust the specifications on the product. Abrasive wheel is very diverse according to its usefulness, including grinding wheel and cutting wheel. Grinding stone is a stone that is used the same as milling machines, namely conducting the process of initation on certain materials. Only the initation is very smooth, and the wasted material does not look like milling. The wasted material from this grinding is very small like dust. While cutting stones are stones that are used only for cutting materials such as iron, non-ferrous metals, stainlees steel, aluminum, stone, marble, granite, glass, etc. The additions that must be considered in knowing the abrasive wheel is certification or standards owned, such as those owned by the brand abrasive wheel NIPPON RESIBON.

How can we understand the usefulness of the abrasive wheel itself? Well to avoid mistakes in choosing the stone you want to use should pay attention to the information listed on the label of the stone, here is an explanation of the parts on the label abrasive wheel:

  1. Product Name Logo,
    There are internationally registered trademarks
  2. Lot Number,
    Listed lot number or production code
  3. Speciation
    The existence of specification codes for grit and quality
  4. Application (media)
    The existence of a specification icon for the usefulness and function of the stone
  5. Safety Symbol (Pictogram)
    There are pictograms for working safety guidelines
  6. Maximum operational speed (m/s) and maximum rotation speed allowed (rpm)
  7. Size
    To find out the size of the stone (mm)

Thus after knowing the information listed on the label abrasive wheel and its understanding is expected so that the wearer can more easily determine what abrasive wheel to wear. In addition, it can also minimize the possibility of errors in choosing abrasive wheels.
