What is a grinding wheel?

A grinding wheel is an expendable wheel that carries an abrasive compound on its periphery. These wheels are used in grinding machines.

Types of Grinding Wheels

A. Cup wheel: A cup wheel is used in Tool and Cutter grinders. It is used (and dressed) on the side face and has the advantage of producing a truly flat surface on the side of lathe tools.

B. Straight wheel: A straight wheel is among the most common style of wheel and is found on bench or pedestal grinder, and is much preferred over chisels for their advantage over the latter.

C. Cylinder wheel: A cylinder wheel has a long, wide surface with no centre mounting support. It is usually huge in size measuring up to 12” in width and is used only in vertical or horizontal spindle grinders.

D. Tapered wheel: It is much similar to a straight wheel that tapers outward towards the center of the wheel. It is stronger than straight wheels with a great acceptance of higher lateral loads.

E. Saucer wheel: It is used to grind milling cutters and twist drills. It is commonly used in non-machining areas.

F. Diamond wheel: A diamond wheel is a grinding wheel with industrial diamonds bonded to the periphery. It is used for grinding extremely hard materials like carbide tips, gemstones, concrete, etc.

Grinding wheels have abrasive to grind away an object’s surface area. It is the grit size of the grinding wheels that define how large the abrasives are. The finer the abrasives are, the better they can polish and sand. The coarse abrasives are used for aggressive grinding.
