The UTG 9R
Designed for use on tube and pipe product, we see today, this tool used widely with clients producing or doing repair work on balustrade and handrails.
The UTG will wrap around the work-piece, avoiding the potential to create flat spots and is used for not only cutting a final grain or blending the surface, but also used with coarser belts , to remove welds. We’ve commonly seen this tool used in conjunction with 3M Surface conditioning products, in handrail reclamation or restoration work. ATS has and engages demonstration UTG tools and we carry a wide range of abrasive belts at all times.
Please contact us if you would like an onsite demonstration of the UTG tool to gain a full understanding of its potential.
The UKC 3R
Another very popular tool in the stainless market is the Suhner UKC 3R fillet grinder. This tool is designed to reach into hard to access corners and areas that normally would create problems, when dressing, removing or blending tight corner welds.
This tool has variable speed, soft start and plenty of power and the UKC is of great value when shaping or coving welds. We’ve seen the tool used to clean burn marks, remove weld shape and commonly used as a step before sisal cutting and final mirror finishing work. At ATS, we’ve fitted up and offered this tool with a wide range of abrasives, from non woven unitised wheels of various grades and flexibility right up to the range of specialist finishing wheels offered by Rexcut USA, all of which are in stock.
