Case Study: Z-WEB Discs and Aerospace Fabrication
ARC Abrasives teamed up with an aerospace fabrication company to test the effectiveness of Z-WEB Quick-Loks to their current surface conditioning quick-change discs. For a more in-depth analysis, download the white paper to read about how ARC helped increase production and efficiency to further impact their bottom line.
The primary focus was to compare the performance of the Z-WEB Quick-Loks to the current surface conditioning quick-change discs. The challenges that the company faced involved:
- Performance and efficiency of current quick-change discs
- Discs becoming too hot and causing loading
- Frequent changeovers
Operators used 3″ MED Z-WEB Quick-Loks finish small aluminum aerospace components more efficiently than the current surface conditioning discs. The Z-WEB disc also completed each component in a much faster speed and lasted longer, leading to more completed sides and less time spent on disc changeover.
