Metalworkers are often on-location without access to a power supply. Now Quebec-based Walter Surface Technologies has the solution — the Zipwheel cutter, a powerful cordless cutter that can drive a six-inch cutting wheel.
This unique tool utilizes the latest battery technology (an 18V/5.2Ah battery) and features an exclusive ventilated charging system, allowing workers to perform more cuts between charges. In addition, the ventilated charging station quickly charges the battery while also extending its life by keeping it cool during the charging process.
Similar to other Walter power tools, the Zipwheel cutter provides unrivalled efficiency and reliability as it leverages state-of-the-art technologies, including Dynamax electronics for RPM control and consistent speed under load, bevelled gears to reduce noise, and a front retaining plate and rear bushing to prevent misalignment and reduce vibration.
“We’ve incorporated the latest technology to engineer the Zipwheel cutter and produce this one-of-a-kind heavy-duty and lightweight cordless cutter,” says Stephane Drainville, product manager at Walter Surface Technologies. “This one tool will reduce downtime by allowing users to make more cuts between recharges. And with the ventilated charging system, battery-life is extended, too. All of which leads to reduced production costs. Furthermore, with the ability to use a six-inch cutting wheel on a cordless cutter, it will easily increase performance and production rate. It is the ultimate tool for on-location workers.”
The Zipwheel cutter is designed to be used with Walter’s high-performance ZIP family of cutting wheels. By combining both products together, users have the perfect cutting technology in hand.
