A cup grinding wheel can be used for front grinding, which is difficult with flat wheels. Front grinding is a method of grinding using the bottom surface of a cup grinding wheel. Front grinding is an excellent grinding process in terms of surface roughness, flatness, and efficiency.
Cup grinding wheels are used in a wide variety of fields, including can manufacturing, sheet metal, and mold forming. Depending on the size of the grinding wheel and the number of revolutions during operation, cup grinding wheels are often used for press punching, edge deburring, and rounding.
While surface grinding is the main application for a normal flat grinding wheel, cup grinding wheels can be used for front grinding, taking advantage of its cup shape. This allows for superior grinding in terms of accuracy and efficiency.
Cup grinding wheels are cup-shaped. The shape of a cup wheel includes a cylindrical straight cup and a tapered cup with a wider mouth at the top. There are also various heights and diameters of grinding wheels.
Ceramics such as white alumina and light red alumina are used as materials for grinding wheels. The grain size of these ceramics varies and can be selected according to the application.
Cup grinding wheels can be used for front grinding, which is difficult with flat grinding wheels. Front grinding is an excellent grinding process in terms of surface roughness, flatness, and efficiency.
Cup grinding wheels are used in a wide variety of applications. In addition to the usual grinding of metals and ceramics, some cup wheels can also be used for grinding glass and other materials that are sensitive to high temperatures by taking measures against the heat generated during grinding.
There are also a variety of cup grinding wheels that can be used for a wide range of products and environments, such as those that reduce the noise generated during grinding.
