Meister Abrasives’ HPL grinding wheels rely on CBN crystals fixed with a durable, porous, intrinsically-lubricated bonding matrix. This enables faster grinding of difficult materials without sacrificing quality from wheel loading or part burning.

These wheels contain a lubrication that is intrinsic to the bonding matrix chemistry and is released uniformly as the wheel breaks down. Wheels manufactured with this technology minimize friction from interactions with the bond and workpiece, minimize heat generation and deter the onset of metal loading into the bond structure.

The grit retention and lubricating properties of the bond make it possible to utilize high concentrations of premium-grade CBN crystals that in a standard bonding matrix would generate too much pressure and heat. This improves cutting performance and wear resistance.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.

  • 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.

  • Between Centers And Centerless Grinding In One Setup

    It sounds like a contradiction in terms-between centers and centerless grinding on one machine. But for some categories of workpieces, it's a viable production process that can yield machining time reductions of 45 percent over separate grinding operations.
