Alpex Wheel Co.: Vitrified Grinding Wheel

April 18, 2001
Alpex Wheel Co. has introduced COOL BLUETM, a new vitrified grinding wheel. This new generation grinding wheel reduces grinding times by 30% and improves grinding ratios by 50%. In order to achieve this significant improvement in performance, the new wheel was designed to run at lower temperatures, reducing heat buildup during the grinding operation. Chip flow and coolant access to the PCD workpiece are optimized, and lower operating temperatures reduce grinding wheel edge wear. COOL BLUE is available in three different grades -- coarse, medium and fine.
