what's the difference between Resin Diamond and Resin CBN grinding wheels ?
Resin bond Diamond & CBN grinding wheels are the most commonly used SuperAbrasive product currently consumed. Resin bond product, as the names describes, is a combination of resins and fillers pressed under heat and pressure that are easily dressed to straight, angle forms, , and special radius forms. So, which grinding wheel would be ideal to complete your desired results? Well, that depends on what you are trying to accomplish…
RESIN DIAMOND APPLICATIONS:
Fine Finish: Very Fine finish can be achieved using resin bond products.
Carbide cutting tool industry,
Thermal spray industry
Other specialty materials
Types of Grinding:
Double disc grinding,
Quartz, Silicon other specialty materials
HVOF coatings (including various types of Colmonoy material)
RESIN CBN APPLICATIONS:
Grinding Steel: Grind most all grades of steel, but must have hardness of 45Rc or above to be ground effectively with CBN. There are cases that soft steels are ground with CBN but many different factors will have to be addressed. HSS, A series, T series and most stainless steels are ground effectively and profitable with CBN resin bond wheels.
When Grinding Iron:
This type of wheel does not react to iron
