The Benefits Of Abrasive Wheel Training

The use of abrasive wheels in the building trade is commonplace, and as such abrasive wheel training is an essential part of good abrasive or grinding wheel use. By ensuring that certain safety procedures are followed in every single instance of abrasive wheel use, the risk of being hurt or even killed by a faulty piece of equipment is drastically reduced. As anyone who has used an abrasive wheel in the workplace probably knows, these wheels are made of extremely tough materials such as diamond or silicon carbide. The actual abrasive material might be boron nitride, manufactured diamonds, ceramic aluminium oxide, aluminium oxide or one of various others. Those using such a device will no doubt have had abrasive wheel training. If a wheel is damaged in any way, it can shatter with terrible results - ranging from minor injury right through to death. Serious injury is the more probable of the two. It is important not to attempt to grind wood with an abrasive wheel as it is possible that this will clog the pores ...


Types Of Abrasive Blasting Techniques

In the world of metal parts and machineries, rust and corrosion are regular frustrations. For manufacturers, rough surfaces when there shouldn't be any and the presence of contaminants are worries. Thankfully, a simple yet effective process known as abrasive blasting can address all these concerns.Like its name indicates, abrasive blasting is the process of literally blasting a surface with abrasive material to smooth, remove impurities and to etch it. Like pressure washing, the amount of force used determines how well and how quickly desired results can be produced. Typically, the process doesn't use wet fluid as the power source. Air is utilized instead except in the case of wet abrasive blasting which uses water.Wet abrasive blasting: The use of water aside, wet abrasive blasting is a gentler process as the medium acts as a cushion against the oft times overly harsh action of abrasive materials. Damage is minimized and the chance of preventing foreign material from being blasted into the surface is reduced...


Abrasive grinding discs

Abrasive material is the material used to roughen the surface of other materials (generally to give it a matte,satin or beaded finish) and abrasive discs are used to cut or to shape up materials like metal, wood, plastic and so on. Abrasive grinding disc is basically made of abrasive grain and binding material. Durability of the disc for sharpening or shaping surfaces depends on the bond between abrasive grain and binding material and the ratio of abrasive to bonding material, in volume. As the disc becomes older, abrasive grain starts to fade out and the disc starts getting dull.various profiles or cross-sections are also obtainable from such discs using some tools.Abrasive grinding discs are classified based on the abrasive material, base mold, wheel structure, abrasive grain size etc. and they may have various different grades, different structures and different sizes. Majority of abrasive grinding discs contain bonds made up using ceramic, feldspar etc. This ceramic wheels are fired in electric, gas-fired...
