New ingredient dispensing system improves ceramic bond production

A vitrified-bond grinding wheel manufacturer replaces metal hoppers with polyethylene dispensers to reduce labor, eliminate waste, and optimize its powderbatching capabilities.

Grinding wheels are abrasive cutting tools used in various industrial applications. They have two major components -- the abrasive grains that do the actual cutting, and the bond that holds the grains together and supports them while they cut. To allow the abrasive in the wheel to cut efficiently, the wheel must contain the proper bond type. Most grinding wheels are made with vitrified (ceramic) bonds, which are very hard, but brittle, like glass. Vitrified bonds have gained popularity in recent years because of their aggressive and free-cutting structure and ability to adapt to various grinding speeds with only minor adjustments. Vitrified bonds also minimize wheel load-up and reduce the need for dressing and conditioning, producing a more efficient grinding operation.
