5″ CBN Tool & Cutter Grinding wheel 1-1/4″ bore.
1/8″ x 1/2″ CBN Section
The CBN Grinding Wheel gets its name from the cubic form of boron nitride. Rivaling synthetic diamond as the hardest material, CBN is starting to steal the spotlight in the ferrous grinding wheel industry. To achieve such a feat, desirable traits of a high-performance Superabrasive requires tremendous hardness, strength, thermal and chemical resistance as well abrasion resistance. Synthetic diamonds typically do not do well under intense thermal heat (generated from grinding), resulting in CBN quickly replacing conventional Superabrasives. Deploying a CBN grinding wheel to work on difficult to grind (DTG) materials is allowing our customers to cut down production time as well as saving money.
CBN Grinding Wheel Performance
CBN being a tough Superabrasive, doesn’t typically break down from the surface material. Instead the breakdown of the bonding agent occurs resulting in the material being removed from the core. To improve the life of the wheel, we recommend grinding under a coolant as well consider using the bond being used. Our advanced bonding systems and formulas used on our CBN grinding wheels ensure that our wheels stay strong and last longer than competitors.
