Saw & Tool Grinding Wheels
Eagle offers solutions for companies needing an array of grinding wheel applications. From service shops to filing rooms, our goal is to help you improve production continually. These may include band saws, knife sharpening, special steel tools, and carbide tools.
The production ability of the wheel is by far more important than the cost of the wheel. While the life of the wheel matters, because it is an investment, having a wheel that removes more material and producing more tools provides much greater a benefit. At Eagle Superabrasives our aim is to build wheels that can increase your production. Instead of having a wheel that is five percent cheaper or last twenty percent longer, having a wheel made that grinds more saw blades per hour or sharpens more cutters per hour will actually produce more profit in the long run.

Maximizing Saw sharpening Profitablity
Diamond wheels are an amazing product when it comes to grinding. While they be an expensive investment initially, the production capability of these wheels is unmatched. In the case study below of a saw grinding service, we will discuss how implementing diamond wheels into your grinding process will increase your productivity as well as profits!
- Saw Sharpening Charge – $20
- Diamond Wheel Cost – $200
In this hypothetical scenario, we will look at a saw grinding business working 220 days per year with the average production rate of 60 saw blades per day per worker. In a typical work year, one individual can manufacture 13,200 blades. The revenue generated from one worker alone equals $264,000. The average diamond wheel last five days, so 220 working days / 5 yields 44 wheels needed per year. 44 x $200 = $8,800 per year on blades.
Our customer is looking to save 15% per diamond wheel. If we reduce the cost of each wheel by 15%, the final price per wheel becomes $170. Using the same formula, 44 x $170 = $7,480. Savings per year is $1,320! Sounds great right?
Another customer looks to save money by having a wheel made in a harder bond so it lasts longer. If you have a wheel that last 30% longer, the total wheel life would be 6.5 days instead of 5. 220 working days / 6.5 = 34 wheels needed per year. 10 less wheels used per year, saves you $2,000. While this savings may seem outstanding, there is a downside, the wheel becomes less productive due to its hardness. So the actual revenue from service ($20 per blade) may decline due to less productivity.
The real savings can be found when you have a wheel that can manufacture more blades per day. For example, we create a wheel that can grind an additional 10 blades per day.
The 60 blades per individual now becomes 70. An additional 10 blades serviced per day, generates an extra $200 a day in revenue. 70 x 220 working days = 15,400 blades serviced per year. Comparing that to the first scenario of 60 blades per day we see the profits growing quickly.
Due to the wheel being made so it increases productivity, the wheel life decreases by half. What used to be 44 wheels now becomes 88 wheels. The additional 44 wheels x $200 = $8,800 in wheels. After you have deducted this additional cost from the new revenue, the final result is you net $35,200 if we make the wheel more aggressive.
