Metabo Choice Cuts Line of Grinding Wheels Offer Versatility for Use in Numerous Applications

WEST CHESTER, Pa. June 2009 – Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers its expanded Choice Cuts line of thin cutting wheels matched to specific applications.

The Choice Cuts line features four wheel types with a wider selection of job-matched premium abrasive grains and engineered resin bond formulas to provide optimum cutting speeds and wheel life.

Ideal for cutting steel and ferrous metals such as smaller diameter rods, rebar and angle iron, the economical Original Slicers are 0.040” thick cutting wheels.  These aluminum oxide wheels, the industry’s fastest cutting wheels, have the flexibility necessary for flush cutting.
The 1/16” LongLife Original Slicer wheels are engineered for extended life cutting of thin wall steel and stainless steel sheet metal as well as thin wall pipe and tube.
Slicer-Plus high-performance cutting wheels are 0.045” thick with the ability to perform aggressive, cool cutting on all metals.  Specially-coated aluminum oxide blended grains and a proprietary resin bond create wheels ideal for the toughest applications including thicker sectional cuts in steels, stainless steels, heavy rebar, harder metals, heavy wall pipe and angle iron.

Choice Cuts’ extreme performance cutting wheels, the Super-Slicers, are 0.045” thick and feature a specially formulated blend of high-performance abrasive grain for optimum life and cutting speed.  This makes the Super-Slicers ideal for extreme applications such as thicker stainless steels, high tensile alloys, inconels, chromes, hastalloys and other extremely hard metals.

All wheels in the Choice Cuts line are available in 4.5” x 7/8” and 6” x 7/8” diameters.  Both the Original Slicer and Slicer-Plus are available in Type 1 and Type 27 versions, while the Super-Slicer is offered as a Type 1 cutting wheel.  Each features two full layers of high-strength fiberglass for added user safety.
