What are Surface Grinding Wheels?
Surface grinding wheels are used to produce smooth finishes on flat surfaces. The process of surface grinding is used heavily in machining. The process typically includes a grinding wheel that is covered in abrasive particles (CBN, CDX, Diamond) that cut chips of metallic or nonmetallic material from a workpiece, resulting in the face being flat or smooth.
Surface grinding wheels are one of the most used wheels in grinding operations. The surface grinding wheel is used as the finishing process, by rotating the wheel to smooth the flat surface of the workpiece.
Surface Grinder Machine
There are a variety of surface grinders available for working with surface grinding wheels. The first machine that can be used with surface grinding wheels is a horizontal spindle. This machine allows the flat edge of the wheel to be in contact with the workpiece, producing the flat surface. Horizontal grinders are typically used for high-precision work on simple flat surfaces, tapers, or angled surfaces. The next machine is a vertical spindle. The face of the wheel is used on a flat surface. Wheel-face grinding is often used for fast removal of materials from the workpiece. The workpiece is typically held on a rotating table which can rotate continuously, resulting in a smooth and even finish.
