Selecting the right cut-off wheel ensures freedom from burn and distortion and is the best way to save time and consumables. Correct cutting produces specimens which are in perfect condition for the next preparation steps. The most commonly used abrasives for the cutting of different materials are Silicon Carbide and Aluminum oxide. Silicon carbide is suitable for non-ferrous metals whereas Aluminum oxide is referred for ferrous metals. Hard wheels are used for cutting soft materials while soft wheels are recommended for cutting harder materials.
Metallurgical Supplies develops a history breaking cutting wheel named the SuperCut. SuperCut wheels are used to obtain superior cut surfaces. Metallurgical Supplies SuperCut series wheels are suitable for routine laboratory applications requiring a balance between wheel life and performance.
