Acme Grinding wheels are produced on equipment specially designed to give precise control of each step in the mix-press-bake-finish process. Presses ranging from 50 to 3,000 ton capacity are used to assure uniform product density. Ovens are driven by state-of-the-art computerized controls. Speed testing is done on equipment utilizing precise control under high horsepower loads.
Quality is only as good as the people and systems making the product, and at Acme we have the best. We manufacture to the highest quality standards and are capable of meeting your quality system requirements. Quality audits are conducted at programmed intervals; control is maintained throughout the manufacturing and customer relations process.
Acme grinding wheels, when used correctly on properly maintained and guarded machines, are a safe cutting tool. However, if they are misused, abused or inappropriately applied they can have a very dangerous potential. Always use the right wheel for the job. Safety booklets and literature covering a wide range of applications and the ANSI B7.1 Standard for the Use, Care and Protection of Abrasive Wheels are available free by writing, e-mailing or calling Acme. Contact us any time to discuss your safety concerns. This is just part of the service we provide to our customers.
