WEAR AND SHOCK RESISTANT
Grinding tools with a sintered metal bond are significantly more wear and shock resistant than grinding tools with ceramic or resin bonds This is due to the mechanical strength of the bond and the use of extremely tough, block-shaped grain types. However, they achieve a lower stock removal rate by comparison.
Diamond grinding tools with a sintered metal bond are preferred for grinding non-metallic materials such as ceramics, glass, etc. Effgen Schleiftechnik is a specialist in the production of grinding tools with a sintered metal bond for processing hard, brittle materials, such as quartz glass and Zerodur with or without ultrasonic support.
Grinding tools with a sintered metal bond are available in diameters ranging from 1.5 to 500 mm with widths of up to 100 mm as a full covering. Metal bonded cutting discs with a closed covering are available up to a diameter of 400 mm. Segmented cutting discs are available up to a diameter of 1,400 mm.
