Surface grinding wheels of ours with good cooling properties at high stock removal
Our surface grinding wheels for metals, non-ferrous metals and tools have excellent bonding characteristics due to structural pressing. In particular, the highly porous surface grinding wheels developed by us result in cool grinding with high stock removal rates at the same time.
For profile grinding, profile wheels are used to grind a defined profile on the workpiece. The shape of the grinding wheel profile corresponds to the negative profile of the profile to be generated on the workpiece. In diaform grinding, the profile of a reference part is taken with the aid of a probe and then placed on the grinding wheel with a grinding tool to create the profile on the grinding wheel.
A large number of aluminum oxide/corundum grades (e.g. normal aluminum oxide, special white, pink or ruby fused aluminum oxide, sintered aluminum oxide/sol-gel corundum) and their mixtures are used as grain types for surface grinding and profile grinding. Various silicon carbides are used as abrasives for non-ferrous metals.
Surface grinding – a widely used grinding process with many variations
Surface grinding is widely used in industrial applications. In general usage, the term “surface grinding” often only refers to the horizontal spindle peripheral surface grinding process. This peripheral surface grinding with the circumferential surface of the grinding wheel as the effective surface is carried out in two variants: conventional surface grinding and inching grinding.
In conventional surface grinding, the grinding wheel moves back and forth over the workpiece in a relatively small stepped inlet with high feed rate. Inching grinding, on the other hand, works with a comparatively high feed rate and a very low feed rate.
However, surface polishing involves more than just this process with its two variants. More information on surface grinding and other process variants such as side grinding (vertical spindle grinding) or double-sided grinding can be found in our grinding knowledge section under “Grinding processes / applications”.
