Weiler Abrasives has expanded its offering of small-diameter cutting and snagging wheels for high-speed die grinders to include Tiger AO, Tiger Zirc and Tiger Ceramic. These 2" to 4" diameter wheels are designed for long life and fast cutting. This product expansion provides end users in the metal fabrication and ship building industry with increasing levels of cutting performance to meet their needs. The Tiger wheels come in 1∕4" and 3∕8" arbor hole sizes. 
Tiger AO cutting wheels feature an aluminum oxide grain to provide even, sharp, clean cuts along with a hard bond to extend wheel life when cutting steel, according to the company. These wheels are available in thicknesses of .035", 1∕16", 1∕8" and 1∕4".

Tiger Zirc cutting wheels are designed for high performance and have .035” thickness. These wheels feature sharp zirconia alumina grains that retain a high cut rate throughout the life of the wheel, and are designed for cutting steels, including structural and cast iron. 

For maximum cutting performance, even on stainless steel and hard-to-grind metals, the Tiger Ceramic cutting wheels have self-sharpening grains to reduce discoloration by cutting at lower temperatures with less friction. They also require less effort to use, minimizing operator fatigue, and are available in 1∕16" thickness.

Weiler Abrasives’ small-diameter wheel offering also includes Type 1 Tiger AO and Wolverine AO snagging wheels for die grinders, as well as Type 27 Tiger AO wheels. This expansion builds on Weiler Abrasives’ offering for die grinders, which includes Tiger Bobcat Mini Flap Discs, flap wheels, blending discs and wire end brushes.

  • Drag Finishing of Delicate Parts

    For complex parts with high surface finish specs, production deburring and surface prep can be done using the drag finishing process whereby the parts to be deburred and finished are mechanically dragged through the media while attached to fixtures—thus preventing the parts from contacting one another.
