Snagging Wheels

Snagging Wheels Manufacturer

Hindustan Abrasive’s Snagging Wheels are popular among metal fabricators, steel mills, shipyards etc.


Snagging Wheel is an indispensable tool for grinding. The choice of the wheel decides the crushing quality and grinding cost. Each snagging wheel has a certain range of application according to its own characteristics. Thus, the grinding process should rely on specific conditions such as:

  1. The material properties of the grinding part
  2. Heat treatment methods
  3. The shape of the part
  4. Size of the part
  5. The Shape of processing and technical requirements

Snagging Wheel Selection

The choice of snagging wheel is often based on three factors are:

  1. Roughness,
  2. Life requirements
  3. Milling efficiency requirements.

The granularity of the abrasive shows about the roughness. The hardness and size of the grinding wheel convey data about milling efficiency.


Markings Placed on the labels of Snagging Wheel Discs

When choosing to snag discs, the user should pay attention to the markings placed on their labels (or right on the circle), with the help of which manufacturers seek to convey the information about products to customers. Pictograms with images of gloves, headphones, and a respirator will remind users of the safety rules when working with snagging disc.

There are also high-tech snagging wheels in the market, which include ceramic alumina. It produced by gel sintering technology. Grinding wheels based on this material can grind and even cut almost any material. Cutting should buy a disc with a large grain whereas for grinding fine grain size discs are perfect. The smaller the number on the disc marking, the larger the abrasive.

Functional Use of Snagging Wheel

We distinguish snagging wheel used for snagging grinding in the following types:

  • Cutting Wheel
  • Grinding Wheel

The primary purpose of the cutting wheels is to cut all kinds of metal profiles of iron, steel, and non-ferrous metals. Cutting discs make grooves of different depths in the metal and cut off the armature.

It uses snagging wheel for cleaning, polishing, and grinding of metal surfaces. That is why the thickness of this abrasive circle is greater than the cutting wheel. Using this abrasive wheel, you can remove fine chips from the material with the help of hard particles are in the grinding wheel.

It uses Snagging wheel for stripping metal workpieces and plastic parts, which allows getting a perfectly flat and smooth surface. It belongs to the category of consumables intended for stripping rust, traces of welding, paints, and varnishes, etc.

Snagging Abrasive Wheel related FAQs

1. What is Snagging Grinding ?

Grinding process which removes large amount of material without surface finish requirements called Snagging or snagging granding.

2.What is grit size of snagging wheel?

Grinding wheels are divided by size and type of grinding grain. It is also customary to distinguish the quality of the connection of solid grains in a circle. Today on the shelves of construction stores, you can buy grinding wheels with abrasives from aluminum oxide. Carbon steels, hard alloys, cast iron, and wrought iron, can be ground with such circles. For soft metals (copper, bronze, etc.), stone and rubber; silicon carbide grinding wheels are perfect.

3.What is size of outer diameter of snagging abrasive wheel?

The width of the circle must correspond to the tool. Rings of different sizes are available – from 80 to 500 mm. But only some of them are suitable for household angle grinders. The size also matters: the larger the diameter of the circle, the higher the angular velocity, and, the higher the cutting speed of the metal.

4.What kind of grinders use snagging wheels for grinding process?

Abrasive discs for small-sized angle grinders with a power of less than 1500 W. Abrasive wheels for large angle grinders with a power of up to 2600 W There are also circles designed for installation of stationary equipment only. Their main differences are external dimensions and optimally rotation speed.
