Unitised and Convolute Metal Finishing Wheels

Unitised and convolute wheels can save a lot of time by eliminating several stages of traditional metal polishing methods.  With the right product at the right speed you will be amazed what can be accomplished.  Below (click the 'More Information' tab) are just a few of the application opportunities that these wheels open up. Please contact us if you would like advise on how technical wheels can best help you to improve your process and finish.

These wheels are formed from re-processed non-woven abrasive to give a light texture with the characteristic of controlled aggression. Unitised wheels are cut from slabs and are usually supplied in maximum thicknesses of 13mm. Convolute wheels are cut from a 'log' which has been rolled from the base material before final baking. The abrasive material is thus in a spiral or convolute profile within the 'log'. The wheels can then be cut to almost any thickness, with 25mm and 50mm being popular widths. The most aggressive will remove welds whilst the finer grades will brighten the metal leaving fine finishes. 

Our selection is separated in to 4 catagories:

Unitised General Use Wheels: for fixed spindle machines. Wide range of sizes and grades available.

Convolute General Use Wheels: For fixed spindle machines. From 150mm upwards. Ideal solutions for fine finishing hard alloys.

Wheels for Finit-Easy Machines: All of these wheels are 6" / 150mm diameter and are either 3mm or 6mm in width.

Spindle Mounted Unitised Wheels: Convenient for finishing shapes and profiles with air tools or drills.
