A flap wheel, also known as a flap sanding wheel or flapwheel, is a simple abrasive disk. It's used in metal finishing in a similar way to flap disks.
However, while flap disks are made of one circular piece of coated abrasive, flap wheels are made of multiple pieces, or flaps, or abrasive all overlapping together in a circular, wheel formation, with a central core or hub connecting them all together.
Flap wheels are used for contouring, shaping, and grinding pieces of metal. They're used in many industries and fields of work, including machining, welding, industrial maintenance, engineering, and heavy-duty equipment work.
There are many advantages of working with a flap sanding wheel, as opposed to a simple flap disk. For example, a flap wheel is able to more evenly wear and smooth a metal surface, due to the presence of multiple flaps all connecting with the surface with every rotation.
