Grinding Discs Reduce Noise, Increase Metal Removal
Pferd’s CC-Grind-Strong grinding discs are offered as a high-performance alternative to conventional resin-bonded grinding wheels. The design combines the strength and long service life of its ¼" resin-bonded abrasive backer with the operation and surface finish of its layered coated abrasive discs, the company says. The discs are said to enable aggressive removal rates, reducing noise and vibration by as much as 50 percent and reducing dust by as much as 70 percent, compared to conventional grinding wheels.
The CC-Grind-Strong grinding discs are designed for use on steel in applications such as mill scale removal, weld dressing, chamfering and deburring. They are available in 4½" and 5" diameter sizes with both 7/8" unthreaded bore and 5/8"-11" quick-change threaded hub.
No other process can do what creep-feed grinding can do. Recent tests show even more can be gained by optimizing every element of a creep-feed system.
