Contact Wheels FAPI-KS/V

Lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® and plastic foam are attached alternately to the aluminium hub of the contact wheel FAPI-KS/V. While the width of the lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® should be kept constant, the width of the plastic foam lamellae can be varied. The wider the plastic foam lamella is, the more aggressive the contact wheel will be.

The height of the coating or the length of the lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® and plastic foam can be varied depending on the application (standard: 25 mm). The longer the lamellae are, the less rigid the material becomes, which in turn reduces the aggressiveness of the contact wheel.

Advantages

Because of their lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® and plastic foam, contact wheels of the FAPI-KS/V – series are extremely aggressive contact wheels.

Benefits of contact wheels with this design:

  • Maximum removal rate
  • Plastic lamellae provide optimum cooling of the abrasive belt
  • Wear-resistance
  • Oil-resistance
  • Grease-resistance

Because of these outstanding properties, contact wheels of the FAPI-KS/V – series have proven themselves in the market over decades. The FAPI-KS/V – series continues to play an outstanding role even with our newest developments.

Applications

The contact wheel FAPI-KS/V is used in particular when high abrasion is required in a short time (for example for surface grinding). But even lightly rounded workpieces can be ground without difficulty using this contact wheel.

Grinding: surface grinding, cylindrical grinding, profile sanding

Grinding method: dry grinding

Operation: automatic grinding, portable machines, pedestal grinder/backstand, robotic grinding

Dimensions

Diameter: 150 to 450 mm
Width: 20 to 200 mm
Lamellae high: 25 mm
Hole: as per specification

Other dimensions on request!

Coating Hardness

The hardness of the lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® can be differentiated into three levels. The spectrum extends here from a medium soft lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® with 60º Shore (A) to an extra hard lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® with 90º Shore (A).

The correct lamella hardness always depends on the individual application.
