Vehicle Manufacturer Reduces Cost of Abrasives By $12,000 Annually

Challenge: 

An asphalt roadbuilding equipment manufacturer was quickly going through their current cut-off wheels, which was adding up in cost.  The manufacturer was looking for a wheels with a longer life, and less expensive cost. 

Solution: 

LineDrive suggested the CGW 36381 4 ½” Fast Cut Wheel for the manufacturer to trial.  The CGW wheel lasted longer than the previously used wheel and cost 33% less. 

Cost Avoidance:  

The manufacturer purchases about 1,000 wheels per month.  With the new CGW wheel being a dollar less than the old wheel, and lasting longer, the manufacturer will save $12,000 a year in wheel costs.
