Suhner (Australia) announces a new line of grinding wheels designed to address the complexity of aluminium machining.
For over a hundred years now, Suhner has been focusing on custom solutions, quality and precision. As an internationally acclaimed specialist and provider of cost effective and efficient solutions for surface treatment, Suhner Abrasive Expert is setting quality standards all over the world in the field of specialised abrasives and equipment.
Thanks to a wealth of advantages, aluminium is an indispensable part of many sectors, including automotive, aerospace, machine building and facade design, as well as lightweight engineering and mould making. High stability, optimal casting properties, low weight and corrosion resistance are some of the advantages of this material. However, despite its ability to realise complex solutions, aluminium presents great challenges in machining, and specifically in grinding aluminium workpieces and casts.
Suhner’s KFS AL type heavy-duty fibre wheels
Machining aluminium workpieces requires an optimal combination of abrasive and drive unit for efficiency and cost control. Suhner’s new heavy-duty fibre wheels deliver particularly impressive removal rates and service life when operating at speeds up to 8000 rpm. Thanks to its special coating, the wheel can handle all aluminium alloys, without lubricant and without clogging. The new KFS AL type fibre wheels are available with the usual grain sizes of 36, 60, 80, and 120.
SUN-fix SB AL type grinding wheels
One of the most important advantages of the new SUN-fix SB AL type grinding wheels from Suhner Abrasive Expert is the specially developed coating, which prevents the workpiece from overheating and aluminium particles from clogging the wheel. No additional lubricant is needed for the grinding process, helping to cut costs. The new SUN-fix grinding wheels for aluminium are available with the turn-on and roll-on attachment and with the usual grain sizes of 36, 60, 80, and 120.
KPS AL type eccentric grinding wheels
Suhner Abrasive Expert offers the new KPS AL type six-hole grinding wheel with Velcro fastener for eccentric grinding machines. These grinding wheels deliver an impressive performance on aluminium, are extremely robust with high edge strength, and can easily withstand extreme stresses for precision work in corners and on edges. The new eccentric fibre wheels are available with the usual grain sizes of 80, 120, 150, 180, and 240.
