CBN Wheels Composition
CBN Wheels have quickly been taking the grinding and turning industry by storm. CBN stands for cubic boron nitride, a man made material that is only rivaled by diamond. However, CBN holds certain advantages over diamond. Diamond wheels may be good for carbides, glass and ceramics, it doesn’t handle heat well. As we all know from experience, grinding at high speeds causes large amount of heat to build up at the point of contact, resulting in the breakdown of the wheel. CBN Wheels has a very high thermal conductivity rate, allowing it to sharpen and grind ferrous materials, whereas diamond cannot.
CBN Wheels and their crystal structure
A CBN crystal structure is nearly atomically the same, except on the bonding match. In diamond carbon atoms hold the structure, whereas cbn, boron replaces these atoms. This minute, replacement of atoms is what makes the difference in thermal conductivity as well as being the reason why cbn wheels can grind ferrous materials.
