The vacuum-brazed, solid steel Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter is the perfect grinder for welders and metalworkers alike. Here’s what a welding instructor in Red Deer, AB, Canada has to say about them:
Comments from the users of your product are very favourable. The discs are very aggressive when used for angle grinding or facing of pipe. Typical resin discs quickly glaze over and/or wear unevenly (i.e. radius the edges) making them ineffective where as [sic] the [Safety Blade Grinder/Cutters] will repeatedly produce flat surfaces suitable for root face (land) preparation on pipe sizes up to NPS 6”. The holes in the disc also allow the operator to monitor the progress of the preparation without removing the grinder from the surface. Because of the aggressive grit there is an increase in vibration experienced by the grinder operator but is not intrusive. As a non-consumable type of disc the amount of air bourn [sic] particulate is almost nil, greatly reducing the hazards to the users and occupants of the work area. At this point in time we do not have information on the cost effectiveness of using the [Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter] vs. others.
The Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter is so aggressive, as this instructor noted, because of its thick coat of vacuum-brazed diamond (up to 85 percent concentration). It also reduces airborne particulates because of its solid steel construction. In fact, it doesn’t emit any silicon carbide fibers, like abrasive wheels and stones, during cutting or grinding.
In addition, its solid steel design won’t contaminate surfaces like abrasives, so welders spend less time cleaning and brushing and more time welding and earning money. The Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter also increases worksite safety because it won’t shatter during grinding, like abrasives.
