Overview: There are a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance. Applications range from hand grinding to disc cutting.

They can be used at all stages of a work process, for making preliminary cuts and scores in materials, or for fine polishing and finishing.
