CBN Wheels

CBN wheelsDue to their outstanding wheel life and wear resistance, CBN Wheels are quickly start to dominate the superabrasive industry. CBN Wheels are extremely cost effective in high volume production scenarios. CBN stands for cubic boron nitride, a man made material that follows a close second for hardness when compared to diamond. Diamond may be a harder material, however, CBN rivals diamond at extreme temperatures. At high temperatures, diamond begins to lose its hardness while CBN maintains its strength and hardness. Contrary to a Diamond wheel, a CBN Wheel is not suitable for grinding carbide materials.

CBN Wheels vs Hardened Steels

CBN wheels are the best, when it comes to grinding steels. Unlike diamond which loses its carbon atoms when grinding steel, CBN wheels hardly create a high-temperature. CBN has an extremely good thermal conductivity, meaning it provides a cool clean cut and less sparking from the wheel. A cool cutting experience helps maintain the integrity of the bond. A CBN wheel typically does not break down from wear, instead the breakdown of the bonding layer will cause a subsequent  wheel wear. Our chemist and engineers, here at Eagle Superabrasives work constantly on advancing our bonding systems to ensure that our grinding wheel bonds stay intact and provide an extremely long work-life.
