CGW’s diamond wheels are designed to last longer than traditional bonded abrasives, which decreases production times and lowers grinding and cutting cost ratios. The wheel line consists of type 29 depressed-center grinding wheels designed for weld removal, pipe beveling and stock removal on ferrous and nonferrous metals; type 1 notching/grinding wheels designed for foundry gate/riser removal, sectional tubing and hard-face metal alloys; and 16" to 20" combination cutting wheels for chop saws, stationary saws, gas saws and rail cutting machines, used for rail track, ductile iron and carbon/mild-steel applications.
Because they do not wear down like traditional abrasives, the wheels produce fewer sparks, virtually no odor and less material debris. Solid-steel construction does not fracture during use like resin-bonded wheels, the company says.
