Electroplated grinding wheels is an excellent option when an aggressive amount of stock removal is required.
A single, uniform layer of diamond or CBN crystal is electroplated to a precision machined steel surface.
How to Produce Electroplated Diamond Grinding Wheels or Electroplated CBN Grinding Wheels?
The electroplated diamond wheel is a diamond grinding wheel made by electrochemical method. The working layer of the grinding wheel contains diamond abrasive grains, and the diamond abrasive is bonded to the substrate by a metal bonding agent. First, the thickness of the deposited metal bond is 20% of the height of the diamond abrasive grains (upper sand), and then the diamond abrasive grains are continuously bonded (thickened) with a metal bond to a thickness of about 2/3 of the height of the abrasive grains. Includes diamond dressing wheels, diamond wheels for grinding or cutting
The electroplating process gives the most aggressive, open structure of all bonding methods. This bond type is primarily used in from grinding applications. All bonds can be fashioned into any standard or custom shape.
The Advantages of Electroplated Diamond Wheelsor Electroplated CBN Wheels:
Aggressive/free cutting bond structure adapts to various spindle speeds. Ability to grind a particular shape or profile.Increased productivity. Improved grind ratios. The usage of Electroplated Diamond Grinding Wheels; Tungsten Carbide; Ceramic or Aluminum Oxide. The Usage of Electroplated CBN Grinding Wheel for High-Speed Steel amd Hardened Steel.
