Cut off Wheels and Accessories

Sample preparation cut-off wheels available in various diameters. Wheels are designed to give best possible burr free sectioning. It is recommended that Kemet Universal Fluid for re-circulating cooling systems be used. (Large diameters available on request).

Abrasive Cut-Off Wheels

Selecting the right cut-off wheel is important to ensure samples are not burned or distorted and can also save time and money. The most commonly used abrasive cut off wheels are Silicon Carbide (for non-ferrous metals) and Aluminium Oxide (for ferrous metals) Hard wheels are used for cutting soft materials while soft wheels are recommended for cutting harder materials.
