Automotive Industry

automotive min

There are 1.4 billion light-duty vehicles worldwide. This number is projected to double by 2030, and triple by 2050. That’s over 4 billion vehicles around the globe!

This skyrocketing trend increases the demand for all sorts of automotive parts and the grinding solutions for all stages of production. Eagle Superabrasives’ lines of diamond and CBN (cubic boron nitride) grinding wheels are manufacturered with these solutions in mind.

Grinding Wheels for the Automotive Industry

Eagle works closely with automotive manufacturers to help them produce the best quality parts and components without burns, burrs or chatter.

Whether you are grinding, cutting, finishing, shaping or polishing, we’ve got you covered.

Our diamond and CBN wheels are commonly used in the manufacturing of engine components, such as camshafts, crankshafts, valves and cylinder heads.

Superabrasives help operators to achieve the specific, polished surface finishes their parts require to ensure optimal operation, leak-free matting surfaces, and reduced wear and friction.

Welded body and chassis parts also typically require grinding to smooth, sharp edges and precise finished surfaces.

Advantages of Superabrasive Wheels

Diamond and CBN wheels are made for the high-volume production environments typical of the automotive industry, and offer a number of advantages over conventional grinding options, including:

Durability

Longevity

Thermal Stability

Fewer Wheel Changes

Improved Shape Retention

Less Truing Required

Ability to Grind Hard-to-Machine Materials

Quicker Grind Times per Part

These advantages combine to help increase overall efficiency for a variety of automotive grinding applications.

Compared to conventional abrasives, such as silicon carbide and ceramic alumina, superabrasives display cooler operating temperatures, produce smoother surface finishes, and can machine up to 100 times more components.

What Sets Eagle Apart?

Eagle’s superabrasive wheels are used in a wide range of automotive grinding applications, including but not limited to:

Spark Plugs

Windshields & Mirrors

Brake Pads

Crankshafts

Camshafts

Our wheels are suited for high-speed and precise grinding while providing good surface quality.

In particular, our metal bond wheels provide excellent results when glass cutting, a critical application for windshield and side window manufacturers.

Our customers benefit from a stable manufacturing process, high-quality product finishes, increased dressing intervals, long tool life, and shorter grinding cycles.

If any of these sound familiar and are something you are interested in improving, give Eagle a call!
