Rental Solutions – The EDCO Advantage

The EDCO Edge Advantages of diamond tooling products means nothing without the quality and consistency to help customers achieve their project goals.

The benefits of using diamond tools on the job site are endless. Diamond is known as the hardest substance in the world, and it also possesses other qualities that make it a prime candidate for concrete cutting and grinding.

The EDCO Magna-Trap Diamond Tooling is 10 x 10 x 40mm. When compared to similar products, some claimed to be 40mm but actually measured 39.5mm.

They are ideal for grinding asphalt, asphalt over concrete, stone, pavers, brick, block, granite, marble, porcelain, ceramic tile, glass, glass tile and metal. Customers rely on these materials to get their jobs done quickly and efficiently.

Not all diamond tooling equipment is created equal and sacrificing quality for price could end up costing users more. Many customers don’t know the cost of diamond tools replacement until costs are totaled. When looking for an equipment and parts partner, EDCO can give rental centers and their customers a competitive edge over other suppliers due to the quality and reliability of EDCO equipment.

Users will immediately notice a consistent shape and higher quality diamond used by EDCO vs. other brands. EDCO has tested and field-proven its diamond tools to last longer than its competition, providing customers a better value for the money.

A better build from the beginning: choosing
the correct bond based on aggregate is key.

Rental centers need to partner with manufacturers that produce consistent quality. Those that insert inferior, cheaper bond material as filler to reduce price does the customer and the application injustice. The customer may pay a cheaper price because the manufacturer used a less expensive matrix material in lieu of what the specification requires, but life expectancy suffers. Usable diamonds fall out prematurely. This is wasteful and reduces productivity.

Creating a better and more consistent bond to improve product lifecycle takes time, effort and a more involved manufacturing process, all of which EDCO commits to when creating a superior product. During the EDCO manufacturing process, material is sintered at 1,472F/800C for less than 30 seconds. Other products use a very basic bond powder that is sintered at 1,952F/ 900C for 15 minutes. These higher temperatures for a longer time can affect product quality.

While other companies produce 10 to 15 segments at a time, EDCO uses a higher quality alloy metal powder for better diamond retention and consistent production, one segment at a time. This leads to a longer lasting life for the tool.

EDCO pays attention to size, concentration and grit.
Not all diamond grinding tools are built the same. EDCO tooling uses a strong 27 percent diamond concentration, compared to the 15 to 18 percent finer concentration others use; EDCO’s diamond tools are built to outperform. Using a finer diamond can make it appear there is more diamond in the segment, but when broken down to parts per karat, these tools will most likely wear out much faster than EDCO grinding tools.

Grit also matters. The grit number indicates the size of the abrasive grains used when making a grinding segment, dot or button. The grain sizes range from coarse to very fine. When compared to similar products, EDCO engineers have found that other manufacturers marked with an #18 grit were mostly #30/40 grit, while rounds marked #30 grit were #40/50 grit.

True #16/18 grit diamond mesh is much more expensive than #30/40 and the finer grits EDCO uses bring extra value to customers. Other manufacturers use this bait-and-switch tactic when marketing their tooling. They label their packaging as one item that is a bit more expensive, but actually made up of less-expensive materials.

It’s extremely difficult to test each piece, which is why it’s always best to partner with a vendor like EDCO. EDCO’s integrity is on the line and only puts its name on quality, accurately made tooling.

EDCO doesn’t cut corners when it comes to true product size. The EDCO Magna-Trap Diamond Tooling is 10 x 10 x 40mm. When compared to similar products, some claimed to be 40mm but actually measured 39.5mm. EDCO rounds are 26mm x 10mm while other samples measured 25.5mm x 9.5mm.

Reliable replacements equal peace of mind.
If a customer needs to get replacement parts fast, EDCO offers fast shipping and packaging that ensures EDCO products arrive intact and ready to work. EDCO offers free shipping on orders and even a next-day shipping option.

The training to succeed.
Using EDCO Magna-Trap diamond grinding tooling give customers an edge on the job site and the EDCO team backs its products with industry-leading training and education. EDCO makes sure customers know how to correctly use EDCO products so they get the most out of their diamond tool investment.
