The grinding wheel is a cutting tool. It39;s an abrasive cutting tool. In a grinding wheel, the abrasive performs the same function as the teeth in a saw. But unlike a saw, which has teeth only on its edge, the grinding wheel has abrasive grains distributed throughout the wheel.
Grinding is a machining process improving the surface finish of the job and producing small chips. The tool used for this process is the grinding wheel. It is a cutting tool in which millions of microscopic abrasive grains are bond together. Here, each abrasive grain acts like a spiky tool.
We will reference the AA Abrasives 60397 12x2x1 1/4 Pedestal Grinding Wheel T 1 Vitrified A36 from our Vitrified Bonded Grinding Wheel Series. 12=Diameter x 2=Thickness x 1 1/4=Arbor Hole *Note that the arbor hole can be bushed down meaning a bushing may be inserted in the arbor hole to reduce the size of the arbor hole.
In order to select the best grinding wheels,you have to know their characteristics. There are five characteristics of a grinding wheel: material, grain size, wheel grade, grain spacing, and bond type. They are indicated by codes on the wheels label. 1,Material and shortcode
The L shows the wheel grade or also called degree of hardness, which is medium. The 5 refers to the structure of the wheel And the V refers to the bond type. 3, R.P.M which is short code of Revolution Per Minute,which indicates maximum speed of the grinding wheel. m/s is another expression of grinding wheels maximum speed,which means meters per ...
