How to choose the best CBN Grinding Wheel

It can be hard to choose the right wheel, we’re here to help. Here are a few things to consider as you choose your CBN grinding wheel.

What type of wheel should you buy?

You’ll want to consider a few things when selecting the best CBN Grinding Wheel for your shop. Which kind of bond will you buy? What will you be do with the wheel? How large of a wheel will you need? The longest-lasting CBN Grinding Wheel on the market.

One of three types of bonds

We recommend the generic Hybrid bond for the general workshop owner. It has a lower spindle load, excellent thermal stability, reduced tool deflection, has longer spindle life, and has less heat transfer.

A Resin bond is the most common bond system used. It offers good elasticity, superior surface finish, and has highly efficient grinding performance.

Vitrified bonds are extremely aggressive and provide an excellent tool for tough grinding surfaces such as automobiles, bearings, gears, camshafts, or crankshafts.

Which wheel will last the longest?

All Eagle Superabrasives Inc’s are made to last a very long time — as long as you’re alive. We specialize in engineering wheels designed to last long and grind aggressively forever, as long as you take care of it properly.

Why should I use CBN and not diamond grinding wheels?

CBN is a man-made material that rivals the strength of diamond, which is composed of cubic boron nitride. The boron atoms replace the carbon atoms that make up the structure of diamonds. By replacing the carbon atoms with boron, CBN wheels are able to grind ferrous materials with ease. CBN is ideally suited for any hardened steels as there is minimal heat up.
