What is an abrasive wheel? A grinding wheel consists of abrasive grain and a layer of glass fibers bonded by another substance to form the shape of the wheel.

There are several types of grinding wheels to choose from, so when selecting a grinding wheel for a plant, it is important to consider the specifications of contrasting styles and their ability to handle different environments and operational challenges. Let's take a look at how to choose a grinding wheel.

This passage is going to talk about the followings of grinding wheel:

1) Types of Grinding wheels

Grinding wheels - and other more portable abrasive products such as cones and plugs - come in a variety of styles. Choosing the correct type of wheel for a given application allows users to complete demanding metal fabrication jobs quickly and accurately.

Grinding wheels are divided into three main types, where different numbers distinguish between wheels with specific properties and uses.


2) Grinding wheel Materials

The material in each grinding wheel breaks down into several major components - grit, binder and glass fibers - which enhance the strength and stability of the wheel for use in demanding applications. The grit of the grinding wheel is also an essential element to help determine performance.


3) How to choose a Grinding wheel?

When selecting a grinding wheel, the user should consider two main factors - diameter and thickness. Both of these indicators affect the usability and performance of the wheel.


The choice of grinding wheel diameter usually depends on the available tools. The main reason for fitting the grinding wheel diameter to the tool is safety - the tool should not be operated beyond the RPM rating of the abrasive. Choosing the correct diameter also improves safety as it allows the use of appropriate guards. The work space and workpiece configuration can also influence the choice of diameter. For example, operators working in tight spaces or tricky areas of the workpiece may choose a die grinder with a small 3-inch wheel for better access.


The thickness of a grinding wheel affects its performance and wheel life. Our grinding wheels typically have a thickness of one-quarter of an inch. This measurement gives our grinding wheels an excellent balance between accuracy, wheel life and cutting rate when grinding.

Combination grinding wheels and cut-off wheels are also available in 1/8-inch thicknesses. These wheels allow for grinding and cutting where thinner grinding wheels are needed. The benefit of these thinner combination wheels is that they allow the operator to perform 90-degree cuts and shallow angle grinding without having to change the abrasive used on the wheel.
