Grinding Wheels on The Market Today

Grinding wheels are widely used in the manufacturing industry. They can be found in auto shops, construction sites, tool shops, medical manufacturing industries, and so on.

They are also extremely dangerous if you do not understand what you are getting yourself into. Fortunately, there are two options for avoiding disaster:

Understand the importance of wheel grinder safety.

Select the appropriate wheel for the job at hand as well as the material worked.

The second part is a little trickier because there are so many different types of grinding wheels. Don't worry, we'll teach you everything you need to know! Continue reading to find out more.

Types of Grinding Wheels

Grinding wheels are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, and each wheel serves a specific purpose. Others polish and smooth while others sharpen and cut. The wheel shape you select should be appropriate for the application.

1. Grinding Wheels That Are Straight

You constantly see them. The most basic grinding wheels can be found in workshops all over the world. They are typically used to sharpen tools such as chisels and lawnmower blades. You most likely have one at home.

2. Grinding Wheels with Large Diameters

Large-diameter wheels are similar to straight wheels but much larger. These broad-surfaced wheels are used to grind the outside of round objects such as carbide blanks. Also used in the oil and thermal spray industries for OD grinding. Grinding wheels with diameters of up to 36 inches are available.

3. Cup Grinding Wheel

One of the most common uses for Grinding Cup Wheels is to polish stone or concrete. Cup wheels, on the other hand, with a fine enough grit, can handle delicate tasks like paint and adhesive removal. Cup wheels, depending on abrasive size, are frequently used for re-sharpening and finishing in some applications.

4. Dish Wheel for Grinding

Dish grinding wheels are similar to cup wheels, but they are shallower and have a thinner surface edge. Because of their narrow shape, they can fit into tight crevices that a cup wheel would never be able to reach. Otherwise, they serve the same functions as a cup wheel.

5. Segmented Grinding Wheel

Segmented wheels come in a variety of styles, including 6A2, 1A1, and 2A2T. The main difference between this wheel and others is that instead of a continuous abrasive rim, the abrasive sections are segmented and applied to the wheel. ASA shapes include hexagons, pellets, and pie segments. Please contact ASA to discuss this further. Click here for Outer Segmented Diamond Wheel.

These grinders remove large amounts of material quickly without damaging the surface of your work when used with cooling or lubricating fluids. Each segment forms a canal that uses centrifugal force to transport fluids to where they are needed.

6. Grinding Wheel for the Cutting Face

Cutting face grinding wheels grind away material to cut through objects. The grinding edge is usually very narrow and takes a lot of material off at once. These precision tools are used for everything from tile cutting to saw tooth shaping.

Grits Dimensions

Grinding wheels use abrasives such as diamond and Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) to remove the surface area of an object.

The grit size determines the size of the abrasives. Finer abrasives are used to polish and sand. For aggressive grinding or stock removal, coarse abrasives are used.

Bond Classifications

Bonds for applications come in a variety of forms. Bonds have a significant impact on what your wheel can do. The bond breaks down to regenerate new cutting edges as the abrasive wears and dulls during the grinding process.

1. Electroplated Bond

A single layer of abrasive is adhered to by a thin layer of nickel on electroplated wheels. This type of bond sheds hard material quickly and does not require re-dressing. Instead of purchasing new wheels, you can save money by having your existing wheels stripped and re-plated.


There is no need for truing.

2. Resin Bond

Resin bond is primarily made up of resin (surprise!) and fillers. It's one of the most common bonding types for diamond and CBN abrasives. When combined with CBN, it is ideal for working with steels with a hardness rating of 45Rc or higher. When combined with diamond, it is ideal for quartz, ceramics, and HVOF applications.


Resilient Systems

Excellent Finish

Adaptable Whether wet or dry

3. Polyimide Bonding

Polyimide is a type of resin produced at temperatures three times higher than those required to produce standard resin bonds. This resin is ideal for use with Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. They can remove material at a very fast rate because they can work at lower power levels. Polyimide wheels are re-dressable.

4. Vitrified Bond

For precision applications, particularly in the medical and dental industries, vitrified wheels are the best choice for cutting quality and resistance to wear and grooving. Vitrified bonds use less force to provide greater control over deflection.
