EVERYTHING YOU WANT FROM A GRINDING WHEEL: REMOVE, THE UNIVERSAL SOLUTION FOR DRY SQUARING PORCELAIN STONEWARE

REMOVE is the new “universal” grinding wheel designed by International Chips for dry squaring porcelain, technical and glazed stoneware with the aid of the know-how synergies and testing capabilities available within the Surfaces Group.

The group’s Ceramics division confirms its dynamism and innovative capabilities for the development of new application solutions, which push quality and production standards ever higher. The result is a new Grinding Wheel concept, now presented to the market: REMOVE, a truly universal wheel thanks to outstanding performances that guarantee:

  • greater sharpness
  • longer lifetime
  • better finishing
  • easier production line management
  • perfect adaptability to different materials
  • improvement in plant performances

“We ourselves were amazed by the results achieved during testing,” states Paolo Besati, CEO of International Chips. “We didn’t expect such high performances and the feedback exceeded our expectations: REMOVE does exactly what you want it to do, and keeps doing it over time. It delivers very high stock removal rates, unusual for resin-bond wheels, and it works to excellent standards with the same settings for exceptionally long times, with no need for new adjustments, and with no reduction in sharpness.”

“Usually a grinding wheel of this kind is used at high speeds, and operating temperatures are between 50° and 70°,” Paolo Besati continued, “but we also used this wheel on extra-thick materials, which require much slower speeds since the amount for removal is much greater. In these cases, working temperatures reached up to 120°, but the REMOVE wheel kept on functioning efficiently. Usually, with standard grinding wheels, at such high temperatures the binder melts, losing sharpness and diamond as well. REMOVE maintains its sharpness and its self-sharpening capability.”

It is undoubtedly an innovation, not comparable with any other type of grinding wheel.

It’s versatile, able to work perfectly at both low and very high feed speeds. It maintains the line setting, without excessive stock removal, closure or blunting, thanks to its self-sharpening capability.

It’s adaptable, providing its impressive sharpness and precision on all possible types of material and on slabs of varying thickness, such as strips, tiles or extra-thick stoneware.

It’s convenient, delivering exactly what the line needs for a given process, and keeping the setting and results constant over time. It reduces the need for operator intervention when plant settings change, simplifying control procedures. It also optimises production, in terms of increased productivity levels, because it guarantees higher stock removal rates than other grinding wheels, thanks to its high percentage of bare, extremely sharp diamond, and its lifetime is 20-30% above average.

REMOVE is finally available on the market and comes in a single Grinding Wheel type in the HS – HT – HZ variants depending on grain.
