Cooling

Wet grinding is the preferred and generally recommended method to use when working with diamond and CBN grinding wheels.

The use of coolant increases the removal rate, reduces friction, minimizes heat generation and enables free cutting - all of which serve to prevent damage to the work piece and to increase the lifespan of the tool.

A steady coolant supply is an important factor in achieving optimum grinding results and a cost-effective work method.

Synthetic or semi-synthetic solutions, emulsions and grinding oils can all be used as coolants. CBN grinding wheels, however, deliver optimum performance with the use of straight or pure oils.
