Sintered metal bond wheels with high wear resistance, for wet grinding

METAL BOND GRINDING WHEELS


Metal-bonded grinding wheels feature metals like cobalt, tin, copper, iron, brass, etc. Tool service life is determined by thickness. They can be re-profiled when the tool becomes deformed.
These grinding wheels are highly resistant to wear and although their cutting capacity is lower than that of resin-bonded grinding wheels, they are an excellent alternative when measurements or profiles need to be maintained. They are generally used in wet-grinding operations.
These tools usually have high diamond concentrations to improve profile maintenance and are employed in grinding operations that involve little material removal, such as honing or dressing channels in wire-drawing moulds in steelworks.
They are also apt for materials that generate high dressing temperatures, such as engineered ceramics or refractories, or for use in the medical sector for dressing titanium prostheses.
