Innovative Products of America introduces its 3-in-1 diamond grinding wheels. Available in 2" and 3" diameters, the wheels are designed for use with high-speed die grinders. The grinding disc features a diamond abrasive edge that is said to last 20 to 60 times longer than traditional abrasives. In addition to maintaining size and shape, the diamond grinding wheels cut quickly and produce low sparks and odor, according to the company. The three-dimensional coating enables back cutting, gully grinding and bead finishing in difficult-to-reach areas.

  • Grinding Carbide--A Niche Within A Niche

    If one must pick a manufacturing specialty, grinding carbide might not be the first choice because it’s perceived to be very difficult. RPM Carbide Die, however, has worked the material for nearly 40 years and, as specializing seems increasingly to be the order of the day, this northern Ohio shop is in a good position to thrive.

  • A Model Camshaft Grinding Process

    Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.
