Coated abrasives – fabrication
Shaping by high-performance stamping
Our abrasives are shaped using cutting blades and a yoke-type punch. High-performance stamping machines are used to make simpler formats. These machines use precision tools with carbide dies which allow multiple formats to be stamped simultaneously during each stroke. This places high demands on the accuracy of the tool and the stamping machine.
Shaping using laser technology
The application of laser technology during abrasives manufacturing makes it possible to manufacture abrasive discs with very small holes and a large number of holes per disc. Today, this technology is used especially in the manufacture of multi-hole abrasive discs. The hole pattern of the FiboTec discs provides improved dust extraction, significantly reduced clogging and longer life of the abrasive material.
