Abstract

Hard materials can be ground to a polish finish by a grinding wheel having a grinding substance composed of a diamond powder with molybdenum disulphide MOS2 in an epoxy binding, and applied to an aluminum grinding wheel blank for instance. The diamond powder provides the grinding material while the MOS2 acts as a heat conductor and lubricant. The diamond powder and the MOS2 are mixed in the epoxy binder.

Grinding Wheel

Hard materials can be ground to a polish finish by a grinding wheel having a grinding substance composed of a diamond powder with molybdenum disulphide MOS2 in an epoxy binding, and applied to an aluminum grinding wheel blank for instance. The diamond powder provides the grinding material while the MOS2 acts as a heat conductor and lubricant. The diamond powder and the MOS2 are mixed in the epoxy binder.

Figs. 1 and 2 show a sectioned grinding wheel 1 having the grinding mixture 2 formed thereon. The mixture 2 is applied to the cup grinding wheel blank 1 at an edge, as shown in Fig. 1, or to a machined groove that will accept the mixture as shown in Fig. 2. The wheel 1 and grinding mixture 2 are heated to allow smooth flowing and leveling of the mixture, and to cure the mixture for use as a grinding compound.
