As a leading supplier of abrasive products to industry, Abtec provides grinding wheel and cutting disc training courses to individuals and companies throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The use of bonded abrasive that includes cutting and grinding discs and wheels has often, quite rightly, been seen as requiring safety training. Used incorrectly a bonded product could shatter sending debris in all directions at speeds in excess of 150 mph/241 kph. Injuries to operators and those in close attendance can be devastating or even fatal.
In the last few decades portable cutting, grinding, sanding and polishing machine use has increased dramatically. the demand for new and revolutionary abrasive products for these machines has been matched by the abrasive manufacturers. World renowned abrasive manufacturing companies that include Norton St.Gobain, Tyrolit, Sait Abrasives, Swiss Industrial Abrasives (SIA), Bibielle, Starcke, Hermes and many more have invested in producing products that previously would have been unavailable. In the case of the angle grinder it is now possible to grind, cut, sand and polish:
Almost any material including wood, metals, plastic, glass, stone and composites.
Remove substantial amount of material and achieve mirror finish on stone based products as well as many metals.
Increase productivity and safety by using new long-lasting and highly efficient abrasive and bonds.
Many of these new products are not bonded abrasive but coated abrasive.
Consequently safety training in the use of these products requires a different emphasis. If a coated product were to break up in use then the effects for the operator could be substantially different. However many of the other hazards and dangers could result in the same outcome as bonded abrasive. Therefore it is vital to consider training for operators of these products and machines.
