WALTER SURFACE TECHNOLOGIES IMPROVES WORKER PRODUCTIVITY WITH THE NEWLY REDESIGNED XCAVATOR™ GRINDING WHEEL WITH COMFORT MAX™ TECHNOLOGY
June 28th, 2017
Walter Surface Technologies, a global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, introduces the Xcavator™ with Comfort Max™ Technology - a uniquely engineered grinding wheel that reduces grinding time while increasing operator comfort and overall plant productivity in industrial metalworking applications.
The innovative Xcavator™ integrates the latest advancements in Type 27 depressed center grinding wheels. By incorporating Comfort Max™ Technology at the hub of the wheel, it helps minimize vibration, and provides operators with more comfortable, ergonomic working conditions, without sacrificing performance and safety.
“Grinding is one of the toughest, most demanding tasks in the metalworking industry because of the excessive noise, dust, and vibration,” explained Marc Brunet-Gagné, Product Manager of Bonded Abrasives at Walter Surface Technologies. “With Comfort Max™ Technology the new Xcavator™ reduces operating vibrations by up to 15% when compared to its predecessor. This allows for a smoother, more comfortable grinding experience, which helps to reduce fatigue and vibration-induced pain in the hands and arms of the operator - all without sacrificing performance” concluded Brunet-Gagné.
Tested on some of the world’s hardest metals – including tungsten carbide and tempered steel, the Xcavator™ with Comfort Max™ Technology helps ensure optimal power transfer from operator to working surface. It also features Walter’s patented UHR (ultra-high removal) multi-layer manufacturing technology to prevent edge flaking – keeping the wheel symmetrically round for added safety and longer life.
Ideal for use on steel and stainless steel, Xcavator™ with Comfort Max™ Technology is free of materials such as iron, sulfur, and chlorine.
The completely redesigned Xcavator™ with Comfort Max™ Technology is now available. For more information visit walter.com.
