Surface Grinding Wheels
Surface grinding wheels are used to produce smooth finishes on flat surfaces. Surface grinding is one of the most common grinding techniques. The process typically includes a grinding wheel that contains abrasive particles (CBN or diamond) that grinds the surface of the workpiece, resulting in the face being flat or smooth.
Our surface grinding wheels come in a variety of abrasive grains and can be manufactured on six different core materials as well as multiple bonds. The bond selection depends on the material being ground and the desired stock removal rate along with other factors such as whether coolant is used and the machine type.

A surface grinding wheel from Eagle Superabrasives is a universal choice when working with difficult to grind materials that need rapid stock removal and precise tolerance.
Surface Grinding Styles
As with any workplace and the operation involved, different grinding techniques are needed to achieve optimal results.
A surface grinding wheel can be used in two different ways for grinding.
Horizontal surface grinding – This style grinds by placing the edge of the wheel so that it is in contact with the workpiece. Horizontal grinders are typically used for high-precision work on simple flat surfaces, tapers, or angled surfaces.
Vertical surface grinding – The face of the grinding wheel (segment, cylinder, or cup) does the grinding. The workpiece typically sits on a rotary table allowing for an even grinding finish.
