Improved corundum grinding wheels for grind hardening and finishing operations

In general quality, performance and efficiency of grinding operations are strongly dependant on the behaviour of the used grinding tools. Nearly every grinding process is based on special defined specifications. In order to further reduce the energy consumption during grinding and to realize a stable grind-hardening process optimised grinding wheel concepts are required.

TYROLIT, responsible partner for new corundum grinding wheels, has developed new corundum wheel compositions which enable optimised process behaviour for both finish grinding operations and grind-hardening operations.

On the basis of an analysis of suitable raw materials, the potential of special designed grain-bond-combinations in different structures has been verified during defined grinding tests. Dependant on the ground parts and the two tasks of finish grinding and grind-hardening suitable grinding wheel specifications can be selected
