Aka-Piatto Diamond Grinding Discs

For materials with a hardness higher than 150 HV, the best possible choice is the Aka-Piatto. Aka-Piatto is a multi-layer diamond grinding disc that can replace at least 100 - 200 pieces of SiC Paper. It has a consistently high removal rate and will provide absolutely plane specimens with perfect edge retention.For plane grinding of soft materials with hardness below 150 HV or very ductile materials with a higher hardness Grinding Paper can still be the correct choice, but harder materials will greatly benefit from the Aka-Piatto. Depending on the size and the hardness of the samples, Aka-Piatto P80 – P320 is used for plane grinding.

                         Aka-Piatto and Aka-Piatto+ Grinding Discs Information Video

 

Usually a single plane grinding step is sufficient when grinding with Aka- Piatto. The absolutely plane samples make it possible to speed up the following fine grinding step.

Details of these diamond grinding discs can be found in our web shop by following these links. Aka-Piatto and Aka-Piatto+
