Glass Accessories Int’l, will debut the new Toyo Trac Wheel (TC-70), oil glass cutter at GlassBuild America, October 19-21, 2016.

The Toyo Trac Wheel is a revolutionary new wheel featuring mirco-notches along the edge of the wheel.

Trac Wheel notches provide traction for the wheel as it starts rolling on the glass, reducing chances of the wheel skipping especially at the start of a score.

Manufacturing applications featuring this new wheel yield a significant increase in wheel life, clean scores and clean breakouts.

The longer wheel life is attributed to reduced pressure being required to keep the wheel rolling on the glass.

The notches which create traction for the wheel are measured in microns and not visible to the naked eye so there will be no effect on edge quality.

Starting in the first quarter of 2017, the TC-70 will be available in both Pattern and Straight blade options.

Trac Wheel replacement blades will be available at the same time as the cutter and will fit all Toyo cutters which currently accept the TC-10H and TC-17H blades.

A Trac Wheel option is anticipated to be available on multiple handle styles later in 2017.

Pricing for the Toyo Trac Wheel is expected to be the same as other Toyo cutters with similar handles.
