CGW-Camel Grinding Wheels has expanded its high performance Super Quickie-Cut line with the introduction of .075 cut/grind combo wheels. The new combo wheels are designed to allow for cutting and grinding with one wheel for reduced production times and costs. The combo wheels’ .075-inch thickness produces fewer sparks, minimal burrs and removes less material for faster working and reduced cutting resistance. Manufactured with three complete layers of fiberglass and a high-quality grade aluminum oxide grain, the wheels are made to easily grind stainless steel and steel. By angling a right-angle grinder at a 90° position, the new combo wheel cuts; when positioned at a 30° angle, the wheel grinds. The wheels are available in a type 29 shape, 46 grit size and in 4-½- and 5-inch diameters with 7/8 or 5/8-11 arbor holes. Developed for contaminate-free results, the combo wheels are ideal for stainless steel and steel applications.

    Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve its solderability during lead-free assembly processes and for a long storage life of PCBs.

    Surface finish types for commercially supplied stainless steel sheet are detailed in various standards. ASTM A480-12 and EN10088-2 are two; BS 1449-2 (1983) is still available, although no longer active. These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel. Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
