Vitrified Diamond and Vitrified CBN grinding wheels combine the hardest known superabrasives held mechanically and chemically in glass (ceramic bond) to form some of the most highly efficient grinding products available on the market.
The combination of the vitrified bond's high thermal stability and its ability to control wheel structures allows for more effective coolant delivery to the grinding zone, resulting in minimization of thermal damage to the work piece.
Most commonly employed in the grinding of PCD and PCBN tools, Vitrifed Diamond grinding wheels have enabled polycrystalline tool fabricators to obtain excellent surface finishes, quickly and productively. Vitrified grinding wheels can also be used in the fabrication of natural diamond, as well as many dense ceramic materials.
The very nature of vitrified bonds allows for the custom tailoring of a grinding wheel structure specific to a customer's material and grinding process, resulting in an efficient grinding process where wheel life and cycle times are optimized for lowest costs and highest work piece quality.
