RUBI ECD 2in1 Diamond Blades – the all-round helpers of the tiler

Article about RUBI ECD 2in1 SUPERPRO multi-purpose diamond blades.

At the end of 2017, RUBI launched the ECD series of diamond blades. It is unique with its multi-purpose blade, which consists of double-sided electroplated diamond-treated blade sides. This design allows you to dry cut a variety of materials while grinding surfaces without having to replace the blade, so you get a 2in1 product. It is suitable for materials such as various natural stone tiles or ceramic materials with a thickness of less than 25 mm. The high quality of the disc and the SUPERPRO blade is a prerequisite for achieving a clean and high quality cut and surface finish. This 2in1 functionality saves you time and effort when changing blades as well as during the cutting itself.

Thanks to the M14 threaded connection, you can directly connect the ECD disc to angle grinders. The wheel is available in our shop in two diameters: Ø115 and Ø125 mm.

Advantages of RUBI ECD 2in1 SUPERPRO blades

The ECD diamond blade has an electroplated layer so that vibrations generated during cutting or grinding are significantly eliminated, allowing you to achieve a high quality and precise finish more easily.
The variety of materials used (tiles, stoneware, porcelain, marble, granite, etc.) and the different situations that arise when tiling and cutting (straight cuts, angled cuts, surface finishes, etc.) require professional tools, which this ECD universal blade fulfils.

What’s more, the fact that the blade is double-sided increases its performance and durability.

Why aren’t all the blades reversible?

To keep the blade safe to work on, its fixing screws are recessed, which ensures a perfect plane on the outer edge of the blade and also ensures that the screws are not damaged during grinding. Due to the use of both sides of the disc, RUBI includes two sets of fixing holes, and you can only make this you can only make this turn once!

You may ask that if a double-sided blade is so convenient for the job, why can we only turn it once and not more often?

The reason why the blade can only be turned once is because of the need for safety, which RUBI takes very seriously. In order to reduce the weight of the blade and at the same time facilitate the dissipation of the heat generated during cutting, RUBI has designed this blade with a holder made from aluminium.
If the diamond plate of the disc were allowed to be repeatedly mounted and dismounted, the bolt housings would eventually lose the necessary torque and there would be a risk of disconnection during use of the disc. For this reason, RUBI does not offer the diamond disc plate as a replacement.

RUBI manufactures a wide portfolio of diamond blades, but ECDs are one of the particularly interesting products due to their versatility, durability and cost, effort and time savings.
