In September 2019 we updated our grinding app “APPRASIVE” for iOS and Android. The App helps end-users to find products, setup grinding tool and –machine, fine-tune processes and to solve process problems.

The unveiling of the first smartphones in 2007 changed the personal electronics landscape forever. Users are able to customise their personal mobile electronics with apps of all sorts, adapting to their personal interests. For enterprises, this opened up a new channel to interact directly with their end customers.



Thus, TYROLIT decided to launch APPRASIVE – a grinding app designed for consumers. In September 2019 – during EMO exhibition – we launched the latest version of our grinding app, which is available for free for both iOS and Android. The app is designed to help you find the right product with the »Product Finder«, set up the grinding tool and machine with the »Getting Started« function, check and fine-tune your grinding process with the »Process Calculator« and enable you to solve recurring process problems with the »Trouble Shooting Guide«. To do this, the app provides texts, tables, formulas, images and even videos to guide you through your everyday tasks.



Whether you’re interested in cut-off wheels for manual applications, table saws, drills for construction purposes or you’re handling superabrasive wheels for stationary machinery – the TYROLIT APPRASIVE app has your needs covered. The app even offers support for highly specific applications, such as gear honing.

Better still, most of the integrated ­applications and functions are fully available offline – so you can use ­APPRASIVE anywhere with your smartphone or tablet. With our latest app version, you are also able to create your own profile and unlock several new features, such as your »Favourites« list (shortcut to your most used calculations), and have the option to contact TYROLIT directly if you are unable to solve your process problems.



The high number of downloads and the feedback from our customers are proof that we have our finger on the pulse of time with this app. We look forward to your feedback and further ideas about how to improve TYROLIT’s footprint in end-user electronics.
