3M Abrasive Systems’ 3M Cubitron II gear grinding wheels combine the company’s precision-shaped grain and bonding systems to promote consistent, high-quality finishes and tight geometry tolerances. The grains are designed to continuously fracture as they wear, forming sharp points and edges to slice through metal. According to the company, the wheels provide increased throughput, reduced wheel dressing, reduced risk of burning and extended wheel life. Single-rib, threaded and spiral-bevel configurations also are available.

  • Double-Disc Grinding On The Move

    The double-disc grinding process is consolidating its position in automotive applications but is moving into other industries. Double-disc grinders are now easier to operate, and they have added capabilities for control flexibility, precision process control, faster changeovers, and grinding of nontraditional materials.

  • Vertical Grinding Has Advantages

    In vertical grinding, the workpiece is held upright in a rotary chuck with the grinding spindle overhead. This configuration can improve roundness, facilitate single-setup processing and prolong the life of the machine. Loading and unloading may gets easier, too. Workpieces with relatively large diameters and short lengths benefit the most from vertical grinding.
