Grinding & Cutting Wheels
Carpenter Brothers, Inc. supplies a wide range of grinding and cutting wheels to help you clean up your castings and get them ready to ship. We provide grinding wheels, polishing wheels, cut-off wheels, mounted points, plugs and cones, belts, flap discs, combination wheels, cupstones, capstones, and bench grinder wheels. All wheels and tools are produced in varied sizes, grits, and shapes to customer needs. Since castings are of all different shapes and sizes, wheels need to be made to clean or remove metal from different areas of the casting. Wheels are also produced in different compositions to achieve different goals. Speed, wheel life, size, and cost are all factors to consider. Most wheels are made of silicon carbide and a binder. However, any needed abrasive media can be formulated to your specific need. Recent years have seen an uptick in diamond glazed wheels. These wheels are predominately used in automatic or robotic grinders, but some are used in hand grinders.
