The CDM series wheel profiling machine from CUMI is ergonomically designed with operator friendly features for applications such as dressing and profiling of straight and convex diamond or CBN grinding wheels mounted on a wheel pack.

The CDM series comprises CDM 8V (with video vision) and CDM 8P (with profile projector) models, with features such as easy accessibility for operations, rigid design, linear bearings for slide movement, stress relieved castings, precision work and wheel spindle, and customized work spindle front nose. Optional features include variable speed for work and wheel spindle, motorized arrangement for work head axis, and linear scale with digital readout for work head axis.

  • cubic boron nitride ( CBN)

    cubic boron nitride ( CBN)

    Crystal manufactured from boron nitride under high pressure and temperature. Used to cut hard-to-machine ferrous and nickel-base materials up to 70 HRC. Second hardest material after diamond. See superabrasive tools.

  • dressing


    Removal of undesirable materials from “loaded” grinding wheels using a single- or multi-point diamond or other tool. The process also exposes unused, sharp abrasive points. See loading; truing.

  • grinding


    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.

  • profiling


    Machining vertical edges of workpieces having irregular contours; normally performed with an endmill in a vertical spindle on a milling machine or with a profiler, following a pattern. See mill, milling machine.
