Beveling Glass

OptiTEC Wheels

Eagle Superabrasives’ OptiTEC grinding wheel line offers metal and resin bonds specialized to suit your application.

Our OptiTEC wheels eliminate chipping issues by using our superior blend of diamond particles to maintain the sharpest cutting edge in any operation.

A sharper diamond is critical when grinding glass. If the diamond is too blocky or rounds over too quickly due to wear, the wheel will start to chip the glass and ruin your parts.

With our metal bond OptiTEC wheels, you may be able to grind well over 10,000 meters of glass before re-truing the wheel radius.

ID/OD Grinding

MultiTEC Wheels

When a grinding application is simply too abrasive or demanding for standard resin bond wheels, Eagle Superabrasives has you covered with our MultiTEC line of metal bond diamond & CBN wheels.

We utilize a proprietary titanium coating that is physically and chemically bonded to the abrasive particles contained within our metal bonds.

For the actual bonding process, we have added an additional processing step to the traditional three-step manufacturing process, resulting in the true amalgamation of the metal alloys and abrasive particles into one consistent, cohesive block.

These advancements have launched Eagle’s MultiTEC wheels into the top spot in the market when it comes to wheel strength and durability.

These wheels can be designed, manufactured and shipped within four weeks and are backed with Eagle’s titanium-clad performance guarantee.

 

VitTEC Vit. Bond Wheels 

Eagle’s proprietary VitTEC diamond and CBN wheels are made for operators looking for more out of their vitrified grinding wheels.

What sets our VitTEC wheels apart from other vitrified diamond & CBN wheels is a process called Cold Isostatic Pressing (CIP). While ordinary vitrified wheels are only pressed from two dimensions, ours are evenly pressed from every single side, angle, and radii during the CIP process, guaranteeing without fail that our wheel segments have perfectly consistent density throughout the abrasive section.

As a result, our VitTEC wheels provide several advantages over our competition, including:

• High thermal stability
• Dress while mounted to achieve precise wheel forms that last longer, lengthening the time between re-dressings
• Porous bond helps coolant remove heat from contact point & allow for increased stock removal
• Improved edge quality of tools
• Faster cycle times

Centerless Grinding

Pro-Grind Centerless & Regulating Wheels

Eagle Superabrasives developed our Pro-Grind System with an eye toward setting ourselves apart from typical centerless griniding wheels.

With multiple bonds, core types and grit sizes available, Pro-Grind centerless and regulating wheels provide you with mirror-like finishes and maximized throughput speed.

Our Pro-Grind wheels can be produced to your specifications in as little as three weeks.

In most cases, we offer free domestic ground shipping to keep your production line running at peak efficiency.
