Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.
Abrasive Technology’s P.B.S.® braze bond grinding products promote high diamond exposure with optimal coverage for aggressive tooling that lasts longer, cuts faster and runs cooler. Our proprietary P.B.S.® process eliminates peeling and diamond pull out, making these products ideal for machining tough-to-cut materials where fast stock removal and deep cuts are required.
