Mini flap discs offer threaded R mount
Weiler Abrasives Group has expanded its
line of Tiger® BobCat mini flap discs and
made design improvements to help extend the discs’ life to 1.5 times greater than
original BobCat flap discs. The discs also
now feature a threaded button R mount, as well as the current
threaded arbor S mount, to fit a variety of backup pads.
The flap discs are suitable for grinding and finishing jobs in
hard-to-reach areas and for weld blending and edge chamfer-
ing in metal fabrication. When the application calls for aggres-
sive grinding, the flap discs are designed to shed cloth and ex-
pose new grain. They remove three times more material over
the life of the disc than a comparable blending disc, the com-
pany says, and operate best on steel, stainless steel, structural
steel, and cast iron.
Available in angled and flat styles, the discs are designed for
use on right-angle die grinders.
Self-clinching stainless steel
flush nuts provide strong
threads without protruding
PEMSERT® self-clinching flush nuts
from PennEngineering® are suitable
for attachment applications in thin
metal sheets that require load-bearing
threads stronger than tapped holes but
must remain flat without any protrusions on either side of the sheet. They
can be installed before sheet bending
and forming to provide threads for mating hardware in sections that otherwise
would be inaccessible for fastener installation after chassis are formed.
The hexagonal head and clinch technology help ensure high axial and tor-sional strength in service. The nuts install permanently, will never loosen or
fall out, and leave surfaces unmarred
to enhance the functional and cosmetic
qualities of assemblies, the manufacturer reports.
Spinning lathes reproduce
parts with precision
International Technologies Inc. offers the Premo series vertical spinning
lathes from Abacus Maschinenbau.
They feature a polymer concrete frame
for improved vibration dampening, vertical main spindle for better flux, four-way tool revolver, laser-measured rollers, and an ergonomic design.
The metal spinning systems are powered by Beckhoff TwinCAT CNCs running
Premo-Kompakt process-oriented software. Additional software packages and
customized programming are available
for the most advanced applications.
The machines use servo drives on all
axes for high positioning accuracy and
precise part reproducibility, the company states.
Part diameter is 24 to 48 in., forming
height is 20 to 28 in., and forming weight
is 440 to 2,200 lbs. Pressing forces are 10
to 75 kN.
