What are CBN Wheels?

CBN is short for Cubic Boron Nitride. It is a man-made material that rivals the strength and hardness of diamond. Diamond has almost always held the spotlight in the turning and grinding industries. However, diamond is limited to certain materials. For example, end users are not able to grind ferrous materials with diamond wheels, because it intensifies the heat due to carbon bonds that make up diamonds structure. CBN Wheels are structurally the same as diamond, however, CBN’s bonds uses boron which allows for the grinding of ferrous materials.

 

CBN Wheels

CBN Wheels have significant advantages, some of which include great form retention over long grinding times, capability of running at higher removal rates due to grains protruding from the core as well as higher thermal conductivity allowing for longer work times. In particular, CBN wheels for high-speed grinding and high-efficiency grinding are subject to fracture and wear. However, the fracture and wear are not the reason for a superabrasive wheel breaking down. Typically a superabrasive wheel breaks down due to the bonding layer. Eagle Superabrasives CBN Wheels are built with in house proprietary bonding techniques.
