What Are Single Layer SuperAbrasives?
DIANAMIC ® Single Layer Superabrasive (electroplated) grinding wheels and products consist of a single layer of either Virgin Diamond or cBN, which is nickel bonded to a steel core. The exact form required is manufactured directly onto the steel core. Because the form holds true throughout the life of a DIANAMIC Single Layer Superabrasive product, reduced down time is experienced.
Most OD form grinding wheels are manufactured with an indicating ring that is true to the form that allows the operator to align the wheel to individual spindle eccentricity, and to minimize possible run out.
Our standard and custom ID grinding pins and mandrels have a maximum run out of .0005″ between head and shank.

Advantages of Choosing DIANAMIC
An advantage of DIANAMIC Single Layer Superabrasive is that the steel cores(s) are recoatable if not damaged. In most cases damaged wheels can be repaired and re-qualified for a fraction of the original wheel blank cost.
As the superabrasive (either Virgin Diamond or cBN) wears and becomes dull, the individual crystals micro fracture, thereby re-sharpening and exposing new cutting edges until their life is totally expended. Once the superabrasive is expended, grinding pressures sharply increase and the wheel superabrasive coating has seen its total useful life.
The wheel core can be returned to DIANAMIC for stripping and recoating with Virgin Superabrasive. The cost of recoating a DIANAMIC Single Layer Superabrasive product is considerably less than the original cost. Savings range anywhere from 20% to 50%, depending on the complexity of the wheel form in comparison to purchasing a new wheel.
The single layer superabrasive products manufactured by DIANAMIC have many advantages over other abrasives. Due to their high quality, DIANAMIC’S Single Layer Superabrasive products offer extended wheel life with no truing or dressing, fast and immediate removal of stock and re-coatable cores (which lower replacement costs).
