Master sharpens focus on saw grinding wheels

Master Abrasives has released a new range of MASTER SAWPRO grinding wheels with a high-technology bond system specially engineered for the saw sharpening industry.

The new SAWPRO range of wheels uses a resin bond developed for a cool-cutting action and longer life than alternative wheels. They are specially designed for manufacturing and re-sharpening high speed circular saws and sharpening of tops and faces of carbide tipped saw teeth.

SAWPRO wheels are available in superabrasive and conventional abrasive grains in all shapes and sizes. The popular industry specifications are the 14F1 CBN wheels which are suitable for Loroch machines and Diamond wheels which suit most Vollmer machines for top and face grinding applications.

Ian Meredith, Applications Engineering Manager, commented: “Our team has developed the SAWPRO range to deliver excellent performance with a cool cut whilst offering great value for money. For the 14F1 CBN and Diamond wheels, we will be holding stock of the most popular wheel sizes and grades.”

Master Abrasives launched the SAWPRO line of grinding wheels at the recent GrindTec exhibition in Germany where they were amongst the 600-plus companies that presented their latest grinding solutions. The key advantages of the high-technology bond system used in SAWPRO wheels were well-received by visiting engineers who work in the saw sharpening industry.

“There was a lot of interest shown for SAWPRO grinding wheels at the GrindTec event in March where we launched the new product. Industry was missing a high-quality product for saw grinding that is also cost-effective, but the Master brand now fills that gap with this range. We can offer full support with wheel selection and trials through our dedicated applications engineering team and overseas distributors to help manufacturers achieve their saw production and re-sharpening requirements.”
