From steel pipe to hard concrete, having the right cutting wheel makes all the difference when using cut-off machines.
A high quality cutting wheel is essential for getting the maximum performance from your cut-off machine. Our cutting discs meet the highest quality standards and can be relied upon for precise cutting and safe machine operation on construction sites, during roadworks or in rescue operations. This is possible thanks to innovative production techniques and the optimal coordination of STIHL cutting discs and cut-off machines.
STIHL cutting discs can be divided into two main categories: abrasive cutting wheels and diamond cutting wheels. Here’s how they differ:
STIHL abrasive cut-off wheels are made of fibreglass, resin binders and abrasive corundum. These materials are mixed, shaped and fired to bond the components and produce the finished product. The special treatment of the wheels, as well as the triple fibreglass matting, ensures flawless stability in use – even at the highest speeds. Abrasive cutting discs are significantly cheaper than diamond cutting discs, and their strengths lie in cutting structural steel.
Diamond cutting discs are the all-rounder of cutting wheels and are universally suitable for cutting a wide range of materials such as natural stone, concrete and asphalt.
The inner wheel is made of special steel, which is additionally hardened, tempered and pretensioned. This treatment of the master blade ensures that the disc remains stable and reliable even under heavy loads – and at top speeds of 360 km/h.
The diamonds are not only positioned correctly on the cutting segment of the cutting wheel by means of a high-pressure sintering process, but are also optimally bonded within the segment. Sintering at a high heat creates an extremely durable compound without any gaps, which allows for optimal cutting performance. The finished cutting segment is welded to the master blade. In contrast to directly sintering the discs, this process enables an extremely robust connection, which optimally transfers the power of the cut-off machine to cut even the hardest materials.
STIHL cutting wheels work perfectly with our cut-off machines, ensuring that you can work efficiently, comfortably and safely. Developing the components together allows us to achieve a long service life with fast, precise cutting. The special manufacturing and processing techniques we use to produce our cut-off wheels result in less vibration during cutting. Our wide selection includes the right cutting wheel for your specific application and working conditions, allowing you to get the most out of your cut-off machine.
STIHL cutting discs meet the highest quality standards and are optimised for use with STIHL cut-off machines. Of course they're compatible with other manufacturers cut-off machines too.
The special manufacturing and processing techniques we use to produce our cut-off wheels guarantees that you can work efficiently, ergonomically and safely.
