Sintered Diamond Grinding Wheels
Sintered Diamond Wheels are high-quality wheels designed for use on vertical cabbing machines. These wheels feature a metal-bonded and sintered diamond matrix that is 5mm deep, which exposes new cutting points as the wheels are used. This makes them ideal for lapidary work, including gem grinding and shaping.One of the benefits of sintered diamond wheels is that they can be dressed to expose additional crystals for a more aggressive cut. However, dressing is not always necessary if you follow a "side to side" pattern when grinding to ensure even wear. Additionally, these wheels are dynamically balanced at the factory to ensure concentricity for smooth and quiet grinding.When ordering sintered diamond tools, it is generally recommended to order one grit size larger as compared to plated or brazed parts. These wheels come with a 1" arbor and bushingsto adapt to 1/2, 5/8, or 3/4 inch shafts. They are available in a variety of grits and sizes, including popular options like Lapidary Diamond wheels, Diamond Pacific Galaxy wheels, 8 inch Diamond Grinding wheels, 4 inch Diamond wheels, Diamond Pacific Genie wheels, and Gem Grinding wheels.Overall, Sintered Diamond Wheels are a professional-grade option for lapidary work, offering durability, precision, and versatility. Whether you are a professional or hobbyist, these wheels are a great investment for achieving high-quality results.
Grinding Wheel Size: The grinding wheel is 8 inches in diameter and 1.5 inches in width.
Material: These grinding wheels are sintered, which means the diamond particles are bonded together with a metal matrix through a high-temperature process. This makes them durable and suitable for various grinding applications.
Diamond Mesh: The available diamond mesh sizes for these grinding wheels are 60, 80, 100, 180, 220, 280, 360, and 600. Each mesh size is used for specific abrasive purposes, with lower numbers representing coarser grit and higher numbers for finer grit.
Bushing Sizes: The package includes bushings in three different sizes: 1/2 inch, 3/4 inch, and 5/8 inch. These bushings allow you to adapt the grinding wheels to fit different spindle sizes, making the wheel versatile and compatible with various machines.
Order Code: The order code for these grinding wheels is "DSGW8+Diamond Mesh." This code is used to identify and purchase the specific product with the desired diamond mesh size.
These Sintered Diamond grinding wheels are designed for precision grinding and can be used in various applications, thanks to the range of diamond mesh sizes and the included bushings that ensure compatibility with different spindle sizes.

Q: Can these tools be used on different types of equipment?
Yes, Flexible Diamond Tools can be used on a variety of equipment, including hand-held machines, stationary machines, and more. Different backing types and configurations allow for versatility in application.
Q: What is the advantage of using synthetic diamonds in these tools?
What is the advantage of using synthetic diamonds in these tools?
Q: What are the primary applications of Flexible Diamond?
These tools find applications in various industries, including architectural and scientific glass, ceramics, composites, aerospace, transportation, and more. They are used for grinding, polishing, and surface finishing.
Q: Can these tools be used for both wet and dry grinding?
While these tools can be used for dry grinding, they often perform best when used with a coolant or water during wet grinding. Wet grinding helps reduce heat and friction, improving performance and extending tool life.
Q: What is the recommended working speed for these tools?
The recommended working speed typically ranges from 25 to 32 meters per second (m/s), with a maximum speed of 45 m/s. Higher speeds are often used for improved productivity.
Q: What are the advantages of using specific patterns (e.g., big dots, medium dots, arrow patterns) on Flexible Diamond Tools?
Patterns are designed for specific purposes, such as rapid material removal, strong cutting, or efficient grinding on surfaces with sharp edges. The choice of pattern depends on the application and desired results.
