ABRASIVE TECHNOLOGY UK

Electroplated
While the P.B.S.® system allows for diamond materials to be brazed to the substrate, electroplated bonds mechanically entrap diamond particles on the tool. There are several advantages to electroplated technology:

  • The ability to manufacture tight-tolerance forms.
  • Lower initial cost, compared to vitrified, resin and metal bonded superabrasive wheels.
  • Freer cutting, resulting in higher material removal rates, less power required and reduced thermal damage to the workpiece.
  • The ability to hold form or profile from first to last cut.
  • Elimination of time associated with dressing.
  • The ability to strip and replate the core.

AT recommends precision plated products for grinding in creep feed or high speed grinding applications, such as nickel-based superalloys, engineered ceramics, cobalt-based superalloys, ferrous alloys, W C (finishing operations) and tungsten carbide.

Our custom solutions improve your bottom line

At Abrasive Technology, our list of custom-solution success stories continues to grow. In fact, we've developed new parts and methods for every industry we serve. In the process, we've earned a reputation for being able to solve the toughest superabrasive tooling challenges. Best of all, these solutions go beyond simply fixing a problem or designing a new method. We make sure that the work we do improves your bottom line. The next time you're faced with a problem, consult with one of our Customer Service Associates. We look forward to creating custom solutions that will enhance your productivity.

Resin Bond

Known for their high cutting efficiency, AT's resin bonded superabrasives can be used in both dry and wet grinding.

  • Custom-designed bonds to meet the most stringent requirements in production grinding atmospheres.
  • Latest polymer technology for resistance to heat when dry and wet grinding.
  • Extensive bond technology to meet the changing market needs of exotic materials coming of age in the cutting tool market place.
  • Available with technology for the most difficult roughing applications to the finest grinding applications needing a mirror finish.

VFLEX® PROCESS

Our patented VFlex® technology consistently produces resin bond diamond and cBN wheels up to 12" wide in one piece. The VFlex® process also increases wheel density and virtually eliminates deviation in hardness throughout the entire abrasive section. Measurable improvements include:

 A computer-controlled process produces identical wheels each time they're made, providing consistent and predictable wheel performance.

  • Up to 30% increase in wheel life.
  • Higher stock removal rates (up to +.020"/pass).
  • Increased depth-of-cut

Providing products and solutions–when you need them

We offer a host of grinding wheels and diamond tools that are in stock and ready for immediate shipping. In fact, everything in our Express Line® service ships the same day you order it–just like the name implies. In addition to our many in-stock tools, this also applies to a complete line of custom-engineered electroplated tools. Don't worry if the selection is a bit daunting; our trained customer service representatives and application engineers can help. It's one more way we make sure you get the most out of everything that AT has to offer.

  • Flexible Diamond Tools: We have Tech-Lok™ discs, Genesis™ discs, Baby-Rok™ discs and Diamond Handpads for shaping, polishing and feathering composite materials. Our Tech-Lok™ discs attach quickly to your existing grinding equipment with twist lock adapters and are great for scarfing, shaping, deburring, feathering and finishing just about any composite material.
  • Saw Blades: Our lineup of Regular Saw Blades, Mounted Saw Blades, Jig Saw Blades and Thin Kerf Saw Blades are well-suited for trimming and cutting fiberglass or composite materials. The Thin Kerf Saw Blades have an interrupted edge for greater swarf clearance and aggressive cutting action.
  • Router Bits: P.B.S.® router bits are designed to trim, route and profile fiberglass and composite materials and are used in portable routers and CNC controlled machine tools. Our 40 mesh diamond router bits are available in straight flat, ball end, demi-bull and full-bull varieties.
  • Core Drills: P.B.S.® core drills are available in 40 mesh and 80 mesh sizes. The former is designed for use on fiberglass and other composite materials, while the latter is best for glass use.
  • Mandrels: While our diamond mandrels are used mainly for jig grinding of carbide tooling, the CBN mandrels are best for high-speed steel tooling. Both the Accu-Point® brand Diamond and CBN Mandrels and the Precision Mandrels are made from a single piece of steel and hardened for maximum rigidity.
  • Hand Files: Easy-to-use flat files like these are designed for finishing rough edges on fiberglass and composite materials.
  • Resin Wheels: These nine wheels are designed to take care of your basic tool room grinding needs.
  • Dressing: With Accu-Tru® and Rotatrim™ products, we offer a cost-effective solution for restoring, dressing and truing your diamond and CBN wheels.
