Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Grinding Wheel?

A Grinding Wheel

The Grinding Wheel is an expendable wheel that is composed of an abrasive compound used for various grinding (abrasive cutting) and abrasive machining operations. Grinding Wheels are used on grinding machines and are made from a matrix of abrasive particles pressed and bonded together to form a solid circular shape.

Describe the Grinding Wheels Manufacturing Process

Grinding Wheels Manufacturing

The manufacturing process of all Grinding Wheels is a precise and tightly controlled process, due not only to the inherent safety risks of high speed operation of all Grinding Wheels. The composition (raw materials) and the uniformity required to manufacture high quality safe grinding wheels is essential to prevent exploding, due to the high stresses produced on rotation. There are five of a grinding wheel materials, grain size, wheel grade, structure (grain spacing) and bond type.They will be clearly indicated by codes on the wheel label.

What Shapes Do Grinding Wheels come in?

Grinding Wheels come in many different shapes:

  • Straight Cup Grinding Wheels

  • Taper Cup Grinding wheels

  • Dish Grinding Wheels

  • Recessed Grinding Wheels

  • Bevelled Edge Grinding Wheels

  • Angled Face Grinding Wheels

  • Profiled Grinding Wheels

Tell me about Grinding Wheel Abrasives?

Grinding Wheels are manufactured with five different abrasives.

  • Aluminium Oxide      – (A)

  • Silicon Carbide          -(C)

  • Ceramic                  – (SG)

  • Diamond                  – (D)

  • Cubic Boron Nitrade – (CBN)

What are Diamond Grinding Wheels?

Diamond Grinding Wheel Suppliers

Grinding Wheels with Diamond or CBN grains are known as Superabrasives, Grinding Wheels with Aluminium Oxide, Silicon Carbide or Ceramic grains are known as conventional Vitrified or Resin Bonded Grinding Wheels. To use grinding wheels the wheel must first be ring tested to ensure it is in good condition. It is the clamped to machine with flange plates.

Why is it important to Dress Grinding Wheels?

Grinding Wheel Dresser

Dressing of all grinding Wheels is essential although grinding wheels are self sharpening to a small degree.
For best results each grinding wheel should be dressed and trued by using various grinding wheel dressing equipment. Dressing removes the current layer of abrasive so that a fresh and sharp surface is exposed. Trueing of grinding wheels makes the surface parallel to the grinding table. The entire grinding wheel is then even and produces an accurate surface.
