Manufacturing applications involving cutting and material removal in aluminum are particularly challenging. Cutting discs get clogged up and are simply not efficient or effective.
Some users have resorted to circular saw blades and have used them in angle grinders.
At a glance this seems viable, however not only is it extremely dangerous. You can see a list of many of the accidents reported in the USA for using circular saw blades.
The accidents go from finger amputation, laceration and death.
The Risks of Using a Circular Saw Blade in an Angle Grinder
You may wonder “Why?”
Well, simply put, the risk of a kick-back is huge, particularly when this circular saw blades are used for beveling, back gouging, fillet welds, weld repair, leveling and weld preparation.
So high is the risk, and so common are the accidents that some people have come up with some creative nicknames for Circular saw blades used in angle grinders; they include Ninja blade, death blade, widowmaker, just to name a few.
At TFT-PNEUMATIC we understand workers need to perform beveling, back gouging, fillet welds, weld repair, leveling and weld preparation in aluminum and other materials.
Circular Saw Blade Alternative – TFT Milling Disc
This is why we offer the TFT Milling Disc. Designed to be used in angle grinders that does not kick back regardless of whatever position it is put in, and is efficient and long-lasting. It can also be resharpened up to 9 times depending on the type of disc.
We consider it to be the perfect weld preparation tool, not only for aluminum but also for Inconel, Ni-Cr alloys, stainless steel, Titanium, Duplex, Super Duplex, Hastelloy, Magnesium, and other applications.
Depending on the material each disc has been engineered with different numbers of teeth, max RPMs, pitch, material and surface coatings in order to be material-specific and maximize safety, speed, lifespan, and overall experience.
Feel free to reach out to us and discuss specific applications, we would love to hear from you.
