Grinding Wheels

Grinding wheels are used to remove excess metal and prepare a nice finish on the casting. Grinding wheels 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 and/or remove metal from any area of the casting. Wheels are also produced in different compositions to achieve other goals. Speed, wheel life, size, and cost are all factors to consider. Most wheels are made of silicon carbide and binder. However, any needed abrasive media can be formulated to 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.
