Weiler Abrasives' cutting, grinding, combo wheels

Tiger 2.0 zirconia alumina and aluminum oxide cutting, grinding and combo wheels from Weiler Abrasives are designed for demanding metal fabrication industries like shipbuilding, pressure vessel and heavy equipment fabrication. They help cut through inefficiencies, safety issues and labor shortages that prevent companies from doing their best work.

Weiler Abrasives Tiger 2.0 Cutting, Grinding and Combo Wheels“We understand that our customers’ production environments are ever-changing and many are challenged with doing more work with less labor. We listened to their feedback to determine what they want and need in their abrasives,” said Tony Hufford, category manager – metal fabrication at Weiler Abrasives. “The result is wheels that offer fast cut-rates with extended life that we developed through countless hours of trials and validation to provide the best product to market.”

In addition to offering fast cutting speed, Tiger 2.0 wheels last up to 40% longer to increase efficiency in operations’ cutting and grinding applications. The wheels feature an award-winning blotter design that includes an industry-first, patent-pending Optimum Use Line. The line is a visual indicator that helps the operator use the wheel to its full life. This innovation reduces changeovers, allowing for greater productivity while also reducing waste and abrasive spend. In some cases, users experience three times more efficiency than with their previous abrasives.

Tiger 2.0 grinding wheels feature anti-chipping technology, an advanced bond formulation that reduces uneven edge wear and chipping to improve safety and the user experience and extend wheel life.

All of the wheels deliver smooth, predictable cutting and grinding — making the work safer. The addition of a QR code on the wheels makes it convenient for operators to access crucial safety information where and when they need it.

Weiler Abrasives took today’s labor shortages into consideration when formulating the Tiger 2.0 wheels. The wheels produce consistent results among different users to reduce training time and minimize rework. The wheels also make cutting and grinding easier to lessen operator fatigue and improve employee retention.

Tiger 2.0 wheels are available in Type 1, Type 27 and Type 28 options. These wheels range in size from 4 to 9 inches and are intended for use on portable angle grinders.
