Abrasive Wheels Training with ITS

Abrasive wheel training is broken down into 2 categories:

  • Mobile cutting and grinding abrasive wheels
  • Bench grinders.

Mobile abrasive wheels are handheld and are commonly used on-site and powered in a number of ways including battery, 110v and petrol engines.

Bench abrasive wheels tend to be fixed on a pedestal or bench and are powered by mains electricity.
