    Jon Blake ran our 4-1/2 x 1/4 Aluminator Grinding Wheel on 6061 aluminum for 2 minutes. Watch the full test below.
     

    This quick test shows Aluminator removing 33.9 grams of 6061 in 2 minutes. The Aluminator also has major longevity. In this test comparing the Aluminator and other similar wheels on the market, the Aluminator ran for 12 minutes, 148% longer than the average time of wheels A, B, and C.

    Rex-Cut’s Aluminator Grinding Wheel removes an average of 75% - 90% more 6160 through the life of the wheel compared to a sampling of other aluminum grinding wheels on the market. The Aluminator grinds aluminum fast, without loading, and provides a very consistent metal removal rate for the entire life of the wheel. The Aluminator has zero lubricates added to the construction of the wheel, reducing the need for clean after grinding.

    This premium wheel also runs noticeably smoother allowing for safer conditions for grinding operators. Below is the availability of the Aluminator Grinding Wheel.
