Unionized Ironworkers Prefer the Ductile Iron Safety Blade and Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter

Welding and Metalworking Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesUnionized ironworkers love the Ductile Iron Safety Blade and Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter for their speed, durability and safety. Just read what they’ve written:

“The grinding wheel performs very well when removing heavy amounts of material and is very durable. I would say that it works best for heavier removal of material when a nicer finish is not desired. It seems to be a well-made product that works well for what (it) is suited to.”  – Training Coordinator, Iron Workers Local #25, Novi, MI

“In general your vacuum brazed product will last much longer a (sic) create less dust then (sic) conventional abrasive blades. I feel that an iron working contractor engaged in decking will find your blade very useful – lots of savings in changing out the abrasive blades which wear out very quickly and due to the size it should stay on the saw and be less likely to be lost or stolen.” – Apprentice Coordinator, Iron Workers Local #3, Pittsburgh, PA

“Your product (Safety Blade Grinder/Cutters) are 75% more effective than our common abrasive blade and has a definite plus for heavy removal of steels. In addition I agree that it is not probable that it will explode in operation like abrasive blades do, produces 90% less sparks and dust which keeps our shops cleaner and is a very earth friendly, green product.” – Director, Iron Workers Local #5, Upper Marlboro, MD

Ductile Iron Safety Blades and Safety Blade Grinder/Cutters cut and grind faster than abrasive blades and grinders because of their thick coats of vacuum-brazed diamond, which have been proven on ductile, cast, grey, angle and black iron; stainless, carbon, hardened, mild and galvanized steel; non-ferrous materials like bronze, copper, chrome, zinc and lead; high nickel-content materials; and Hastelloy superalloys.

They’re also tougher and safer than abrasives because they’re made of solid steel. Their solid steel designs outlast abrasives by at least 150 to 1. They also won’t explode or shatter, increasing your safety, and won’t emit hazardous silicon carbide fibers, increasing worksite health and reducing your health insurance costs and downtime.

Cut and Grind Faster, Safer and Longer with Desert Diamond Industries’ Vacuum-Brazed Diamond Blades and Diamond Grinders

Desert Diamond Industries’ vacuum-brazed diamond tools are faster, safer and longer lasting than abrasive blades and grinders.

Faster – Our vacuum-brazed diamond blades and diamond grinders have thick coats of diamond (up to 85 percent concentration) vacuum brazed onto their surfaces. These thick diamond coats allow our diamond tools to grind and cut faster than abrasive grinders and blades.

Safer – Our vacuum-brazed diamond blades and diamond grinders are made of solid steel. They won’t shatter or explode during cutting and grinding like abrasive blades and grinders, increasing your safety. They also won’t emit silicon fibers during grinding and cutting, like abrasive grinders and blades, increasing worksite health and reducing your downtime.

Longer Lasting – Our vacuum-brazed diamond blades and diamond grinders last longer than abrasive blades and abrasive grinders. In fact, one of our vacuum-brazed diamond blades or diamond grinders can outlast at least 150 abrasive blades or grinders! That can reduce your replacement blade and grinder costs and save you money in the long run.

The Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter – Better on Metal than Abrasives

Welding and Metalworking Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesThe Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter grinds faster, longer and safer than abrasive wheels and stones. It grinds faster because of its thick vacuum-brazed diamond coat (up to 85 percent concentration), making it an extremely aggressive grinder on ductile, cast, grey and angle iron; carbon, stainless, hardened, galvanized and mild steel; non-ferrous materials like bronze, copper, chrome, zinc and lead; high nickel-content materials; welds; and welding slag. It grinds longer because of its solid steel design, which can outlast abrasives by 200 to 1. Its solid steel construction also makes it safer than abrasives, because it will not shatter, explode or emit hazardous silicon carbide fibers during grinding.

Red Deer, AB, Canada Welding Instructor on the Safety Blade Grinder/Cutter

Articles from Desert Diamond IndustriesThe 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.

[emphasis ours]

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.
