5 Most Popular Cutting Wheels for Cutting Off and Cutting Slots

5

Today, Mrbrianzhao is gonna introduce you to several different types of popular cutting wheels, these wheels can be used for all kinds of material cutting off and cutting slots. What is the difference, a cutting off blade usually don’t have a strict requirement of the wheel thickness, if it is strong and sharp enough, usually acceptable by the users, while if the user needs a diamond blade for cutting slots, the thickness has to be accurate, the size of the slot or groove formed is what they care most. Here are the cutting wheel types for your option.

Diamond and CBN cutting wheels

Diamond and CBN Cutting Wheels

Diamond Cutting Wheels are used to cut hard, short-chipping, and wear-resistant materials such as glass, ceramics and carbide, graphite, silica, ferrite, and semiconductor materials efficiently.

Features:

  • It has high accuracy and may be used for precise grooving and cutting, which speeds up the process.
  • Narrow cutting crack considerably enhances raw material use ratio.
  • Cutting with high efficiency and precision.
  • High stiffness, strength, and service life.

CBN Cutting  Wheels are used to cut materials having a carbon affinity, such as iron-based alloys. CBN cutting wheels and CBN blades are also used for high-efficiency cutting of tool steel, mold steel, bear steel, heat resistance steel, stainless steel, and cast iron.

Features:

  • Higher accuracy
  • Longer lifespan
  • Better form retention
  • Smooth surface finish and precise cut

Metal bond cutting wheels

Metal bond Diamond Cutting Wheel Blade for Lapidary

Metal bond diamond cut-off wheels with steel core are made from high strength, high stiffness steel plate, and a sintered metal bonded abrasives layer. When compared to resin bond, the thickness is thinner and the stiffness is higher, making it suited for deep cutting off or grooving.

Features:

  • Good wear resistance
  • Good shape retention 
  • Long life
  • Low maintenance

Advantages:

  1. Metal bond grinding wheels survive longer than other types of grinding wheels. This increases production by reducing the number of dressings and wheel replacements.
  2. Complex shapes may be manufactured, and because wear rates are minimal, the wheels endure longer than other types of wheels.
  3. Because the metal structure is resistant to assault by alkaline coolants, it is ideal for use with grinding fluids.
  4. Because of the metal wheel shape, it has good impact resistance and can withstand interrupted cut applications.
  5. Heat is rapidly dispersed by the metalcore. As a result, it is suitable for high material removal rate applications such as creep feed grinding (which are also helped by the ability to use coolant.)

One disadvantage of metal bonded grinding wheels is that they are difficult to dress. Unlike resin and vitrified wheels, the binding material cannot be chipped away to expose fresh edges and liberate dull grit.

Applications:

Metal bond grinding wheels are suitable for a variety of materials, including carbides and tool steels. Their primary applications, however, are in regions where the coolant is required to remove heat and chips, such as grinding or cutting glass, ceramics, granite, stone, and concrete.

Resin bond cutting wheels

Resin bond diamond cutting wheels (dicing blades) with vertical consumption may effectively decrease grain deformation and increase cutting quality and efficiency on hard and brittle materials.

Features:

  • Enhance the cutting quality and efficiency.
  • Chip-free cutting, quicker cutting
  • Excellent surface polish

Applications:

Ceramics, optical glass, quartz tubing rods, splitter, IR Filter, QFN, carbide, ultra-hard steels, and metals are among the materials cut using this tool. Resin Bond is the softest of the bonding and is utilized in situations requiring a smooth surface finish.

Electroplated cutting wheels

Because wheels cannot be trued on the spindle, electroplated wheel attachment lets you guarantee the wheel is precisely timed before beginning cutting and grinding. Failure to do so will almost always result in early breakdown or major damage to the wheel, as well as harm to your equipment and machinery.

Features:

  • The exceptional stock removal efficiency
  • more accuracy
  • Can generate any kind
  • Increased cutting efficiency
  • Maximum exposure to abrasive particles

Advantages:

  • The cutting effect is superior to that of a sintered tiny diamond saw blade and will not result in a broken edge.
  • Very sharp cutting performance with minimal heat generation
  • Continuous rim cutting discs make it easier to cut fiberglass, plastic, and ceramic tiles.
  • Cutting discs with segmented rims are more suited for cutting marble, granite, and abrasive materials.

Electroplated diamond cutting wheel for Foundry

Electroplated diamond cutting wheel for Foundry

Foundry superabrasives are often made with very coarse grit Diamond and are commonly created in electroplated or vacuum brazed bonding systems.

Features:

  • Strong grasping power
  • Service life is extended
  • Low dust load owing to the grinding tool’s dimensional stability (no tool wear).
  • Excellent cutting ability
  • Grinding with high accuracy in hard and brittle materials

Advantages:

  • Electroplated grinding wheels grind hard materials efficiently, such as cemented carbide, glass, ceramics, and so on, and the grinding tool has the longest service life.
  • Safety
  • The size, shape, and morphology of the electroplating abrasive particles vary minimally throughout the grinding process, making it more appropriate for high-precision processing and increasing production efficiency. An electroplating grinding wheel is a tool that can fulfill the demands of both high-efficiency and precise processing.
  • There is no loss in size, shape, or surface feet.
  • Because diamond is a super-hard abrasive, it is simple and rapid to remove metal contamination.

Applications:

  • Grinding
  • Grinding
  • Deburring
  • Focusing on the edges (chamfering, rounding)
  • Focusing on the edges

Electroplated diamond cutting wheel for marble & granite

The electroplated diamond cutting wheel for marble and granite is ideal for cutting granite and marble in construction projects.

Features:

  • Long service life
  • High hardness
  • Good wear resistance
  • Exceptional impact resistance
  • The goods include stone, ceramic, glass, hard alloy, and gemstone processing, among other things, with no blast, tiny slit, and sharpness
  • Advanced features include the ability to polish and cut the surface of an item, as well as a variety of other applications.
  • The use of a double-sided grinding area improves work productivity while lowering manufacturing costs.

Application:

  • It is a popular tool for cutting and grinding nonmetallic brittle materials.
  • High efficiency for cutting and grinding stone and marble
  • Designed for cutting and grinding in wet or dry conditions (It could last a longer time than working in wet conditions)
  • Ideal for marble, stone, and fiberglass, but not for hard granite.
  • The use of electroplated technology preserves all diamond grain bonded to the steel core, and the high diamond exposure rate results in high efficiency working performance.
  • Also used to soften rough edges and sides.

Cold Pressed cutting wheels

Cold Pressed Super Thin Lapidary Cutting Blade

The Cold Pressed cutting blade is thin, sharp, and unbreakable, and is composed of high-quality cold-pressed diamonds. This tool was created for cutting rare and costly materials where waste must be kept to a minimum and cutting speed is crucial.

Vacuum Brazed cutting wheels

Vacuum Brazed cutting wheels

Vacuum brazed saw blades are used to cut marble, cast iron, ceramic tiles, hard composite materials like concrete with rebar, metal processing, fiberglass, and PVC tubing, among other things.

Features:

  • Bare diamond particles, sharp grinding, and great efficiency.
  • Brazed polishing discs are more robust and have a longer service life than standard polishing discs.
  • The new brazing procedure can firmly attach the diamond particles on the substrate, making them less likely to slip off, while also increasing diamond density and sharpness.
