Contact wheels FAPI-VUS/RE

The contact wheel FAPI-VUS/RE is an alternative to the FAPI-VUS/RE. It has a coating of alternately arranged lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® and covered Moltopren foam lamellae.

The overall height of the coating must also be selected based on the respective application.

The alternating Vulkollan® and Moltopren foam lamellae make the contact wheel especially soft and adaptable.

In practice, this contact wheel is used mainly for the finishing of lightly cambered or rounded workpieces. Because of the different densities of the material heat dissipate very well during grinding process.

Advantages

The contact wheels of the FAPI-VUS – series are coated only with lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan®

Benefits of contact wheels with lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® :

  • Highly elastic (adaptable)
  • Wear-resistance
  • Oil-resistance
  • Grease-resistance

Because of these outstanding properties, contact wheels of the FAPI-VUS – series have proven themselves in the market over decades.

Applications

Contact wheels FAPI-VUS/RE are used in particular to achieve a high-quality finish on heavily profiled or heavily rounded workpieces in a very short time.

Grinding: cylindrical grinding, profile sanding

Grinding method: dry grinding

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

Dimensions

Diameter: 75 to 450 mm
Width: 20 to 200 mm
Lamella height: as per specification
Hole: as per specification

Other dimensions on request!

Coating hardness

The hardness of lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® coating can be differentiated into three levels. The range extends here from a soft lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® coating with 25º Shore (A) to a hard lamellae of foamed up Vulkollan® coating with 45º Shore (A).

The right lamellae hardness always depends on the individual application.
