Frequently Asked Questions

Should I use Alox or Zirconia belts with my Belt Sander?

It is important to use the correct material so that you can reduce the time you spend changing belts.  Aluminium Oxide would be the standard for working on wood as it has an open coat grain structure and provides long life and a fast cut.  Zirconia would be the high performance option for hard wood sanding as it has an aggressive cool cut.  Hope that helps but please call us if you would like to discuss your individual application further.

My process generates a lot of dust, what is the best sanding disc to use?

It is really important to ensure the health and safety of you and other operators by minimising the possibility of ingesting dust.  A net backed disc with good extraction ensures a virtually dust free environment.  There is an added benefit as full-service dust extraction and the correct abrasive consumable also prevents clogging and so extends the life of the disc, making it more cost-effective.  Hope this helps!  Call us if you have any other questions at all.  

What can I do if burn marks are left on metal plates after cutting?

We have come across this problem before, where customers had to pickle the piece in nitric acid to remove the mark but were still left with a high amount of contamination and dulling and so had to spend  more time on the piece trying to brighten it with a series of mops and paste.

We source a fantastic pickling solution RC LITE INOX which stops black burn markings.  It is tough on the burn marks but keeps the original bright polished finish and gives a much better finish than treating with mops and paste.  It also saves time and time is money as they say!  Please call us if you have any other questions about this solution and we will be happy to help!
