Order Wheels & Consumable Tooling

TLC stocks  tungsten carbide, platinum and diamond cutting wheels in many configurations of 4.0 mm and 2.5 mm diameters:

  • Standard, satin finish or unpolished, variety of angles
  • TAP, polished or unpolished, variety of angles
  • Deep Cut  (2.5 mm only)
  • Diamond or diamond impregnated
  • Platinum

Wheel specifications, (angle, ID, OD, thickness, and grind - polished(satin)/unpolished, all contribute to resultant cutting quality and afterbreak yield. There are guidelines to follow for each type of substrate (soda lime, borosilicate, alumina silicate, quartz, sapphire, etc.), but each one may vary.

To determine an optimum wheel for each product requires test and analysis for each substrate. Unfortunately, there is no "set" formula of cutting parameters, as there are many variables.
