Grinding Segments

 

Grinding Segments are blocks, cuboids and special-shaped abrasive blocks used for surface grinding.
They are used in surface grinding application to grind flat stock or flat surface. Typically a group of a segments are loaded into the chuck that moves the abrasives over the job, but some operation moves the job and keeps the segment stationary.

Critical parameters required are surface finish without a scratch and burn mark, stock removal and overall life. They are used in vertical orientation and hence the operator keeps on adjusting the segments, when it is required. This also helps in the maximum use of the segments in comparison to the wheels.

The key to successful segment grinding is two-sided.

First, the use of correct specification for the job and second, the correct operating structure. It is important to use a special segment bond formulation to allow for maximum chip clearance.

Grinding Segments related FAQs


1. Which type of bond in abrasive segments ?

Segments have a completely different Bond system, which is specially developed for segments. This is because, the usage orientation of Segments and Wheels are totally different from each other.

2.What are the uses of cylindrical grinding segments ?

Usually, the segments are used in courser grits, as they are generally used for stock removal to give flat surface.

3.Why Vitrified Segments have an edge over the Resinoid Segments?

Vitrified Segments have an edge over the Resinoid Segments, as cutting Oil/coolants can be used while in operation. Whereas, in Resinoid Segments, water-based cooling agents are to be avoided, as Resinoid Segments are Resin-based, which are not compatible with water.
