Wheel re-sharpening has become a subject of growing
interest to some of our customers. Experience has shown
there is no loss in the quality and productivity of
re-sharpened wheels when compared to new wheels. To meet
MacInnes' high standards, our wheels may be re-sharpened 3-4
times (depending on the angle) and they will retain the same
performance characteristics as new wheels.
It is our very high precision and close manufacturing
tolerances that make it possible for us to re-sharpen our
wheels successfully and economically. Re-sharpened wheels are
actually processed through our finishing operations in the
exact same manner as new wheels. The resulting re-dressed
wheels are of the same quality as new except that the OD is
about .003-.005 inch smaller than the original.
We will re-sharpen only
MacInnes wheels and require a
minimum quantity of 20 wheels all of the same angle. The
savings of such a program is approximately 35% when compared
to using all new wheels. Contact us for more details or help
in setting up a re-sharpening program at your plant.
