Tim said “…..I’m very pleased with the performance of your wheel. I will order more wheels as I need them. Truly a quality product! Thank you!
Brant says “I much prefer your wheels than anyone else that I have dealt with!”
Eaven Says…… So far with the wheels that I have ordered; 3mm X 75mm Diamond Fluting wheel This wheel is a beast I have only good things to say about it. 100% satisfied 100mm X 10mm CBN This wheel along with my programing has done exactly what I have set out to do […]
Bill said “Good morning, Just a note to let you know Eagle Super Abrasives is one of the best suppliers I have ever worked with. Your employees are all great and you always have what I need. Thank you for helping us do what we do.
Susan said “We received your wheel-Thank you! Everything looks very nice, actually beautiful, and we look forward to having it tested!”
In order to grind glass and ceramics effectively, metal bond wheels are typically selected due to their extremely abrasion resistant make up. The abrasive grinding fines that are produced while grinding ceramics and glass can prematurely erode many resin bond systems, resulting in less than optimal wheel life.
Metal bond is typically used to grind materials such as refractory ceramics in grit sizes ranging from D100 grit to D400 grit.
Resin bond can be used for harder, finer grain technical ceramics for finishing and super finishing of cutting edges with minimal chipping. Grit sizes typically range from D67 to D8.
Resin bond can also be used effectively in glass cutting off operations. Resin bond is especially beneficial for very thin, walled glass tubes used in the lighting and medical fields where a clean, chip free cut is desired. By using a softer bond system, it allows for constant exposure of new sharp diamond particles to ensure a clean, chip free cut.
Glass and ceramic grinding wheels are typically made to order. We offer wheels that are designed to cut and grind the following materials: Scientific Glass, Laminated Glass, Toughened Glass, Stem wear, Optical Glass, Mirror and Sheet glass beveling, Honing, Drilling and Polishing. Al2O3, Si3N4, B4C, Mullite, ZTA, SiN, SiC, CMCs.
Grinding of these materials is typically done under flood coolant to aid in the removal of the grinding swarf and to help prevent loading or clogging of the wheel pores. We offer a variety of different wheel shapes, hardnesses with continuous rim and segmented rim designs depending upon the material being ground and machine operator preference.
