How Bond Type Affects Production Grinding
To optimize performance, proper grinding wheel selection is imperative. Here's an article that provides an overview of the different abrasive product bond types, the benefits of each, and their typical applications.
The emergence of new, difficult-to-machine materials has led companies to more often turn to grinding for certain material removal requirements. To optimize performance, proper grinding wheel selection, including abrasive grain and bonding type, is imperative.
We recently posted an online-only, exclusive article by Robin Bright, technology manager for Norton | Saint-Gobain Abrasives, that provides an overview of the different abrasive product bond types, the benefits of each, and their typical applications, along with a short case study that illustrates higher productivity delivered by a recent bond advancement. Read “Bond Selection for Production Grinding” to learn more about this technology that is gaining momentum.
Single pass honing, also referred to as diamond bore sizing, is a good way to produce parts economically when the bore is small or has thin-walled members that need to be honed.
Centerless grinding is an OD grinding process where the workpiece is supported on its own OD by a work blade located between a high speed grinding wheel and a slower speed regulating wheel with a smaller diameter.
