Designed for optimal cutting in thin gage metal (under 1/8 in., 3 mm thick), Walter Surface Technologies says ZIP ONE TYPE 27 features a special raised center for rigidity, durability and thinness. Its center hub also allows for a larger cutting surface than standard progressive hubs, while enabling straighter, sharper, more precise and higher speed cuts for flush cutting applications, the company says.
“ZIP ONE received tremendous market acceptance from its launch this past January. The ZIP ONE TYPE 27 is expected to hit the market with as much excitement,” says Patrick Lapointe, vice president of research and development, Walter Surface Technologies. “The product has been three years in the making and our engineers have delivered an ultra-thin cutting wheel that not only offers the most durable and rigid TYPE 27 in the industry, but one that provides sharper, straighter and more precise cuts when compared to competing TYPE 27 products. That’s a key technical distinction that results in better productivity for the customer.”
