Having the right abrasive is not enough. All components involved in the grinding process have to be perfectly adjusted as well. Cost savings of up to 40% have proven to be realistic. They can be achieved by reducing the amount of rejects, reducing cycle times and the amount of machine down-times.
All process parameters, such as contact wheel, feed rate, cutting speed and the right lubricant have to be optimised to enhance the operation of the abrasive in use. Only by taking all these factors into account can a sustainable reduction of costs be achieved.
