Imagine that if every time you had to replace a worn tyre on your car, you had to buy a whole new wheel as well. Not only would it be hugely expensive, it would also be hugely wasteful.
Fortunately, somebody soon realised that since the wheel rim would be less likely to require changing, it would be cheaper and less wasteful to separate the two components and only replace the worn part — the tyre.
POMDI has reached the same conclusion when it comes to diamond grinding wheels and tools.
After all, what's the point of throwing away the whole diamond cup grinding wheel when only the diamond surface is worn out?
If the shank attached to the diamond surface doesn't wear and can be reused, why not use it again? Why not replace just the worn part, and so reduce both cost and waste?
This is the idea behind 3NEO, a new technology invented, developed and recently launched by POMDI as part of the Q-LEAN project to eliminate waste and lower costs.
POMDI's 3NEO technology means you only have to replace the worn diamond surface, helping you to minimise your operating costs.
3NEO not only lowers your overheads, it also raises your productivity, as it makes changeover times 15 times faster than with conventional tools. What's more, on top of cutting costs and changeover times, POMDI's 3NEO technology means you only need to hold one fiftieth of the stock.
3NEO's sophisticated patented locking system holds the shank and diamond ring securely in place whilst in use, but allows you to detach them with a simple click when the worn ring needs replacing.
POMDI's 3NEO diamond rings are universal and fit any machine, meaning you only have to stock them in your usual range of grain sizes and types — there's no need to stock a selection of complete tools. With POMDI's new 3NEO technology, you can attach any grinding ring to any shank.
Contact us to find out more about how POMDI's new and revolutionary 3NEO technology can help you:
- Reduce stocks, as the manufacturer or distributor can supply replacements within 24 hours.
- Reduce costs by only replacing the worn diamond ring, not the whole tool.
- Reduce costs by cutting changeover times when the diamond ring needs replacing.
Adopt POMDI's 3NEO technology today and be part of the revolution sweeping the flat-glass diamond grinding wheel and tool sector.
