Today, Mrbrianzhao is gonna recommend you a series of glass grinding wheels and polishing wheels special for glass edging, these wheels have many different shapes and sizes, also made of different abrasive grains, they are diamond cup grinding wheel with full rim, full segmented, half segmented, diamond pencil wheel, OG wheel, and polishing wheel include  BD wheel, BK wheel, 10S wheel, X3000/X5000, wool felt polishing wheel, Low-E selection wheel, etc.  

Metal bond diamond glass grinding wheel

These glass grinding wheels and polishing wheels can be used for the following glass edging machines: straight-line machine, double edging machine, shape edging machine, etc. 

How are the glass edges shaped by glass grinding wheels?

Before a glass edge to be formed into a fine edge, it has to use rough grit metal bond diamond glass grinding wheels to make it grind quickly and make the edge shaped very soon, then use resin bond diamond glass grinding wheel for a finer grit, and polishing, finishing, step by step.  The beautiful glass edge was shaped.

What wheels does a glass edging machine usually match with?

The purpose of a glass edging machine is to grind and polish the glass’s edges. The best glass deep processing machine and one of the greatest amounts of cold equipment are produced by the glass edging machine, which is mainly suitable for furniture glass and architectural glass processing and glass technology. Grinding and polishing of flat glass bottoms and chamfers are the most common applications. 

full and half segmented full rim diamond grinding wheels for glass

For glass production, they employ diamond grinding wheels, particularly for glass edge grinding. They frequently utilize full segmented, half segmented (external or internal), full rim cup grinding wheels, pencil grinding wheels, OG grinding wheels, and more. These glass grinding wheels are appropriate for constructing glass including furniture glass, vehicle glass, optical glass, photovoltaic glass, and so on.
