Abrasive Wheels

Abrasive Wheels are used to grind or cut through a range of materials such as metal or masonry.  The abrasive compound that makes up the wheel performs the same function as the teeth in a saw.  When rotating at high speeds, the abrasive compound cuts away tiny pieces of the material.

We offer certification on Abrasive Wheels from the following awarding body: NPORS.

We accept SDS Individual Training Account (ITA) funding for this course.
