Weldcote Announces High-Quality A-PRIME PLUS Line of Cutting Wheels

KINGS MOUNTAIN, NORTH CAROLINA – October 2020 – Weldcote, a division of Zika Group, introduces its high-quality, German-made line of A-PRIME PLUS slitter-style, cutting wheels.

Designed for applications using high-power, right-angle grinding machines, Weldcote’s A-PRIME PLUS cutting wheels are manufactured of aluminum oxide using an innovative granulation process technology that provides higher performance and extended life.

The complex, multi-step, granulation process allows for even distribution of the wheel’s abrasive grains because each abrasive grain is coated with resins and fillers. The resulting homogenous distribution of the abrasive grain, along with a unique, patented chemical additive, enhances the wheel’s performance and delays its natural aging process.

“The unique granulation process technology from Germany creates an exceptionally high-performing wheel that provides a consistent, high-quality finish,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “Users of this new A-PRIME PLUS cutting wheel will notice that the wheels last longer and don’t stall out as standard wheels often do.”

Available in Type 1 and Type 27, Weldcote’s A-PRIME PLUS cutting wheels are available in 4-1/2″, 5″ and 6″sizes with a grit of 46. Offering a high value-to-price performance, the new A-PRIME PLUS cutting wheels offer low burring and reduced sparks. They are also suitable for low-power grinding machines.
