Important tips on using and selecting the correct carbide bur:

  • The selection of shape and diameter is based on the workpiece and application.
  • Tanner offers the following carbide bur shapes: SA – cylinder shape, SB – cylinder end cut, SC – cylinder radius end, SD – ball shape, SE – oval shape, SF – tree shape radius end, SG – tree shape, SH – flame shape, SJ – 60 degree cone shape, SK – 90 degree cone shape, SL – 14 degree taper radius end, SM – cone shape, and SN – inverted cone shape.
  • Selection of cut is based on the material and finish required.
  • Double Cut burs have teeth that provide excellent stock removal on hard materials. They reduce bounce and chatter, offer excellent operator control, and produce a fine surface finish
  • Non Ferrous burs are recommended for soft materials that tends to load and pack in the flutes. These burs have open, aggressive cutting edges that allow easy chip flow and minimal clogging.
  • When using carbide burs, start at lower speeds and increase speed until the desired result is achieved.
  • When placing the carbide bur into the die grinder, it should be inserted into the collet as far as possible to minimize overhang.
  • Carbide burs should be feathered into the cut with even pressure to avoid digging into the material.
  • Do not apply excessive pressure, it can slow the spindle and chip cutting edges. Let the bur do the cutting.
  • Never encapsulate the bur in the cut.
  • Carbide burs, if used properly, will outperform HSS burs by 50:1.

Rollgliss R350 Rescue and Positioning Kit

One of the most versatile and efficient rescue and descent system on the market today is the Rollgliss R350 Rescue and Positioning Kit. The Rollgliss R350 system provides quick, safe, and effortless operation with state of the art technology and design. The R350 is pre-rigged, so it is ready to be quickly installed right out of the bag. But what makes this system so unique is that it is completely customizable by adding optional pulleys. With these optional pulleys the user can change the hauling ratio from 2:1 to 5:1 for added versatility and safety. The Rollgliss R350 is used to rescue an individual by either raising or lowering the victim to the ground or next level. To use the R350 system, it first needs to be anchored above the victim with the self locking / self closing carabiner equipped with the system. After anchoring, the rescuer can lower themselves down and attach to the fallen victim. Once attached, the rescuer gently raises them both up to relieve the pressure from the victim’s SRL or Lanyard in order to detach them from it. After safely being detached from their fall protection gear the rescuer can either lower or raise them both to a safe working location. Along with its rescue and descent abilities, the Rollgliss R350 can also be used for personal riding or work positioning applications. For these applications the user will typically need a Full Body Harness, boatswain’s chair or workseat, independent personal fall protection system, and of course the Rollgliss R350 Rescue and Positioning System.

DBI Sala Rollgliss R550 Rescue and Descent Kit

When rescuing a fallen worker the last thing you want to do is complicate the situation. The DBI Sala Rollgliss R550 Rescue and Descent Kit helps keep things simple. The R550 is the lightest, most compact, and easy to use design on the market. It offers the choice of rescue, evacuation, or the versatility of assisted rescue with lifting capabilities. This system can be used for a secure, automatic rescue and descent for cell phone towers, aerial lifts, cranes, wind towers, buildings, and much more. You can also choose between two different models: one with a rescue wheel or one without the rescue wheel (for descent applications only).

The DBI Sala Rollgliss R550 Rescue and Descent System is great to use in emergency escape situations. First secure the R550 to an anchor point. After anchoring, connect the snap hook to dorsal or front d-ring of harness and then you can descend safely down to the ground. In an assisted rescue situation secure the R550 to an anchor point. Once in position above the victim, securely attach the snap hook to the victims harness. Then gently raise the fallen victim so they can be unhooked from their fall protection gear. After they are unhooked, descend them safely to the ground. In situations where the victim is out of reach, you will need to perform a pick-off rescue. Secure the Rollgliss R550 to an anchor point and lower a second rescuer down to the victim. When they are in position the second rescuer can now securely attach themselves to the fallen victim. Once securely attached, they can be raised to safely unhook the victim from their fall protection gear. Once unhooked the rescuer and victim can safely descend down to the ground. The Rollgliss R550 Rescue and Descent System can also be used in custom rescue situations like an angled descent. The R550 system will need to be securely anchored on or near the ground. The rope will now need to be run through a pulley above the victim. Once attached to the rope, the victim can gently be raised so they can unhook from their fall protection gear. After being unhooked they can safely be lower to the ground, away from the structure.

Heavy Duty, Vibration Resistant, Self-Locking Sleeve Anchor: The Power-Bolt by Powers Fasteners

The Power-Bolt by Powers Fasteners is a heavy duty, vibration resistant, self-locking sleeve anchor. The Power-Bolt is available in two different head styles: a finished hex head or flat head with a hex key insert. These anchors are made out of Zinc Plated Carbon Steel (Finished Hex Head and Flat Head) and also Type 304 Stainless Steel (Finished Hex Head). The internal bolt of the Power-Bolt is removable and reusable in the same anchor sleeve. This makes it suitable for applications such as mounting machinery which may need to be removed for service and for temporary applications such as heavy duty form work.

The Power-Bolt is designed to have expansion occur at two locations within the drilled hole for maximum hold. At first the cone is pulled into the large triple-tined expansion sleeve, developing a mid-level compression force. Further tightening causes the threaded bolt to advance into the threads of the expander cone, forcing its four sections outwards. The expander cone engages the base material deep inside the anchor hole, greatly increasing the holding power of the Power-Bolt. The bolt and cone remain locked together which prevents loosening under vibratory conditions. Along with the expansion inside the anchor hole, the Power-Bolt is designed to draw the fixture into full bearing against the base material through the action of its flexible compression ring. The compression ring with crush if necessary, while the anchor is being tightened, to tightly secure the fixture against the face of the base material.

General Applications and Uses

  • Column base plates and mechanical equipment
  • Dock bumpers and support ledgersHex Head Power-Bolt
  • Racking and railing attachments

Features and Benefits

  • High load capacity
  • Two-level expansion mechanism
  • Internal high strength bolt is removable and reusable
  • Compression zone in sleeve clamps fixture to the base material
  • Low profile finished head design

Make Your Facility Tamper Proof with Break-Away Nuts

Break-Away Nuts

Security is a major concern on most peoples minds these days. From securing correctional institutions to protecting from vandalism in public places, having the right security products makes all the difference. At Tanner we are your premier source for security fasteners and nuts, providing you with a variety of different products. When it comes to looking for security nuts, the level of protection it offers should be the main determining factor for which type you buy. You can choose from either tamper resistant or tamper proof security nuts. Tamper resistant security nuts are extremely difficult to remove without the proper tools. While tamper proof security nuts have no removal tools, which makes them nearly impossible to remove once they are installed. The tamper proof security nuts that we offer here at Tanner are Break-Away Nuts.

Break-Away Nuts are designed as a one-piece unit that have a break-away hex head that leaves a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind.  These tamper proof nuts are used extensively in places where high security is a key factor such as: correctional institutions, hospitals, schools, public places, and retail stores. Break-Away Nuts help secure a variety of products, prevent unauthorized removal of, and secure access to equipment and facilities. They can be used for a number of critical security fastening applications where removal of a fixture is not intended and when preventing tampering is important. Break-Away Nuts are installed like a typical nut, except once the proper torque is achieved, the hex head breaks away leaving a conical shaped tamper proof nut behind. The conical shaped tamper proof nut that is left behind has no removal tool available making it nearly impossible to remove once installed.

Break-Away Nuts are manufactured from either ZAMAC 5 zinc alloy or 304 stainless steel. The stainless steel variety provides greater corrosion resistance and boasts high-strength properties compared to the zinc alloy nuts. These security nuts are typically tapped to standard bolt dimensions, but are also available to be tapped oversize for hot dip galvanized fasteners.

Break Away Nuts Material Specifications

If you are looking for a tamper resistant security nut instead, be sure to check out our line of Trident Nuts. We have a number of different sizes available and are one of the few distributors that offer Large Diameter Trident Nuts. If you plan on buying any of these Trident Nuts be sure to pick up the correct sockets and accessories to help install these security nuts correctly.
