Superabrasive Bonded Grinding Wheel Specification Questionnaire

The following questions should be answered as completely as possible. Your response will allow us to design and manufacture an “application oriented” Superabrasive grinding wheel best suited to your specific requirements and environment.

If you are currently using a superabrasive bonded grinding wheel, please provide the current type of bond and wheel specifications which are always located on the grinding wheel and the packaging as well as the manufacturers’ name. This information will allow us to cross reference your current product to the Dianamic “application oriented” Superabrasive bonded products.

Often times the type of grinding wheel you are currently using is not the best for your specific application. We will analyze the information you provide us concerning the type of product you are grinding as well as the grinding environment and recommend the appropriate “application oriented” bond system and mesh / micron size for your specific micro finish requirements.

When evaluating competitive products and quotes; please note that often times Dianamic is not the least expensive supplier, although we are the highest quality supplier. Keep in mind that we use in our manufacturing processes only the highest quality available ingredients in our bond systems and never use any reclaim or mixed product (Diamond or cBN). We use only Virgin Diamond (synthetic and natural) and various types of cBN which are selected on an “application oriented” basis.

What is “application oriented” superabrasive grinding wheel? Since 1985, Dianamic selects not only the highest quality Diamond and cBN, but also selects the most appropriate type of superabrasive to be used on an application case by case basis, based on customer requirements and specifications.

Not all Diamond and cBN is created equal. Each type of superabrasive has very specific ways it reacts during grinding / machining processes. Our selection process for the “application oriented” is based on 29+ years of actual manufacturing experience.
