Walter Surface Technologies announces the launch of the new ZIP ONE TYPE 27, the latest addition to the ZIP ONE line of the high performance extra thin cut-off wheels, designed for optimal cutting in thin gage metal (under 1/8”, 3mm thick). With the same ultra-thin design as the current 1mm ZIP ONE TYPE 1 (FLAT) cutting wheel, the breakthrough ZIP ONE TYPE 27 features a special raised centre for extra rigidity, durability and thinness. The unique design of the TYPE 27 center hub allows for a larger cutting surface than standard progressive hubs, while enabling straighter, sharper, more precise and higher speed cuts for flush cutting applications.
Featuring the same ultra-thin cutting wheel features as the ZIP ONE TYPE 1, the new ZIP ONE TYPE 27 is a specially reinforced, bonded wheel with a unique, proprietary mix of high performance abrasives that delivers the thinnest, straightest cuts while resisting bending. Unlike competing TYPE 27 models which can be deficient in terms of durability, rigidity and straight cuts, the specially engineered ZIP ONE TYPE 27 features a raised centre that ensures long-life and true straight cuts with minimal friction and no vibration, ideal for both plunge and flush cutting applications. Manufactured with an iron-free mix, ZIP ONE TYPE 27 cuts cooler and faster and is guaranteed not to contaminate stainless steel. It avoids discoloration of the work piece and cuts burr-free, reducing post-cut finishing. Formulated for high performance, the ZIP ONE TYPE 27 wheel has a significantly longer life compared to other ultra-thin wheels, offering more cuts per wheel and the lowest price per cut.
