“High Speed Wheels” are BDT’s new peripheral wheels for CNC machines for glass and Dekton processing with high performing features in terms of speed and quality results. The idea behind these wheels is to highlight their special feature, that is to say working speed. The market is now requesting high quality, more performing and faster tools, and the advantage cannot only be the result, but also savings in time and ease-of-use.
The entire BDT staff has been working for some months on the design of a new range to satisfy all requests coming from end users and distributors. And that’s what Bovone Diamond Tools has decided to challenge… with three types of wheels: flat edge wheels, trapezoidal wheels and routers. The particular feature of the flat profile wheels is the new design of the sectors, which are smaller and set more closely together; as a result, they can reach speeds of 10 metres/minute, operating at 7,500 rpm.
The trapezoidal wheels are made differently compared with traditional ones and have a different grit size. Accordingly, they can reach speeds of up to 8 metres/minute, again at 7,500 rpm. The new routers also feature the modified sector design and can reach speeds of up to 50 per cent higher than traditional ones, being estimated to operate at around 12,000 rpm. The wheels were tested on a new machining centre recently purchased to allow in-house testing of peripheral wheels, and thus represent the result of this important investment. The excellent results obtained with glass processing were repeated with Dekton, showing its very close relationship with glass.
