Walter Surface Technologies ZIP+ XTRA, a new cutting wheel for heavy-duty steel and stainless steel applications
Cutting through steel and stainless plate, bolts, and other metal materials takes a toll on cutting wheels. But Walter Surface Technologies has a new wheel design that far outlasts other brands subjected to such heavy-duty use: the ZIP+EXTRA.
The 1/19″ thick ZIP+ XTRA replaces the existing ZIP+ and features Walter’s exclusive, patented rib design to reduce friction on the surface for faster and cooler cutting.
With these added features, this new cutting wheel is the ideal solution for metal fabricators, manufacturers and contractors who are looking for a fast, smooth and efficient cut for their most demanding applications.
ZIP+ XTRA’s durability and speed is the result of a new formulation of zirconium grains that are more durable against the toughest materials.
“The product is called ZIP+ XTRA because we wanted to emphasize that this cutting wheel is extra safe, extra strong and extra tough”, said Marc Brunet-Gagne, Product Manager at Walter Surface Technologies.
“With this new formulation, we are able to produce a product that can cut through the most demanding cutting applications with ease and therefore reduce costs associated with wheel changeover as well as costs related to the amount of wheels used throughout the year,” says Brunet-Gagne. “In addition, the ZIP+XTRA produce less dust when compared to other competitive wheels, making this wheel a safer solution for workers and the work environment.”
