Press Release Summary:
Providing more than 10 dBA noise reduction, SILENTIO resinoid-bonded, fiberglass-reinforced grinding wheel is suited for working on steel and SS to maximum speed of 80 m/sec, has damping feature for high run-out, and is available in 4 diameters in 115-230 mm range. Intended for machining SS at up to 80 m/sec, SUPER-THIN cut-off wheel is manufactured by using specially coated abrasive grain and fiberglass reinforcement.

Abrasive Discs for Grinding and Cutting Steel
Two new abrasive products with improved performance characteristics for freehand grinding and cutting have been introduced by Tyrolit.
One is the SILENTIO grinding wheel, which combines maximum stock removal rates with long life and noise reduction of more than 10 dBA. The sound level as perceived by the operator and others in the vicinity is said to be halved.
The resinoid-bonded, fibreglass-reinforced wheel is a Tyrolit 3-star premium product, introduced during the manufacturer's recent rebranding exercise of its entire range. The wheel is ideal for working on steel and stainless steel to a maximum speed of 80 m/s and has a novel damping feature for better run-out. Four diameters are available in the range 115 to 230 mm.
As an added benefit, vibration is also lower than for other discs on the market, which operators say they can feel immediately they start grinding.
Another new 3-star product for machining stainless steel at up to 80 m/s is the SUPER-THIN cut-off wheel, an innovation that the Austrian firm introduced back in 1992.
By using specially coated abrasive grain, optimising the bond system and including newly developed fibreglass reinforcement, a dense matrix has been created that promotes safety in use and long service life, despite the wheel's 1 mm to 2 mm thickness, depending on diameter (115 mm to 230 mm).
The wheel is free-cutting for aggressive machining and the thin profile has the effect of reducing dust, noise and machine load, leaving a clean, accurate cut with good surface finish. Rough sides avoid the risk of jamming and kick-back during cutting.
