Wood Processor Sharpening Wheels

Sharpening wheels are very important when using a wood processor. There are different types of sharpening wheels that can be used. These include diamond grinding wheels and manual or automatic carbide grinders. Before choosing a sharpening wheel, make sure that it is appropriate for your needs. The hardness, grain structure, and other properties of the grinding wheels will determine their effectiveness.

Diamond grinding wheel

If you have a wood processor, you may want to consider investing in a diamond grinding wheel to sharpen the teeth. This type of wheel has numerous advantages, including good bonding strength, low wear rate, and slow consumption. The most important aspect of a diamond grinding wheel is its angle, which must be precisely measured for proper results. Likewise, it must be cool to prevent damage to the carbide.

Different grades of carbide will cause a different amount of wear on your diamond wheel. A diamond grinding wheel with a higher concentration of diamond will last longer. Nonetheless, the price is more expensive than a diamond wheel with lower concentration. The cost is well worth the benefits of a long-lasting wheel.

If you need to sharpen the teeth on a wood processor, a high-grit diamond wheel will be most effective. This will increase the efficiency of your machine. However, you should choose a diamond wheel that is appropriate for the task. A diamond grinding wheel with a lower grit number will result in a rougher finish and increased wear.

Another consideration is the type of abrasive you need. Some are made with a recessed center for fitting into the spindle flange assembly of the machine. Others are in a cylinder or dish shape. The former is perfect for grinding cutting tool teeth, while the latter is good for hard-to-reach surfaces.

If you need to sharpen a carbide saw blade, you need to be able to handle the job. A carbide saw blade is not easy to sharpen, and you must be careful not to damage it in the process. Using the right diamond grinding wheel is essential in ensuring that your blade is sharp and lasts a long time.

Manual or automatic carbide grinders

Carbide burrs are manufactured in a CNC machine by Syndent. Depending on the design and complexity of the burr, it can take a short amount of time or it can take a lot of time. The CNC machine is programmed by a team of technicians who take into account the design and make several adjustments. If you require a custom design, this method is more time consuming.

A carbide burr for wood processing comes in many shapes and sizes. Flame shapes are excellent for grinding and shaping round edges on the material. They’re also excellent for end pre-processing before brazing. Oval shapes are perfect for grinding round edges on both long and narrow areas. The SG type is also good for long-range work because it can be used for round arc contours.

Carbide grinders can be automatic or manual. Automatic ones feature numerical controls and are better suited for industrial applications. Both types of grinders can sharpen carbide saw blades. It is important to choose the type of grinder that matches your specific needs and budget. A manual grinder can be more expensive than an automatic one, but it can save you time and money.

A CNC carbide grinder can be used to cut carbide spirals. It is a good choice for manufacturers of wood products. You can program the grinder’s movement by a software program. This allows you to make more accurate cuts. You can also direct the movement of the blade to make sure that it cuts the wood perfectly.

Grain structure

In the wood industry, planer cutter heads are sharpened on grinders equipped with cubic boron nitride (CBN) grinding wheels. These wheels can restore the cutting capacity of the knife and increase its durability and operational quality. However, it is important to understand that the cutting ability can be affected by the grain structure of the sharpening wheel.

The grains of the sharpening wheels are made up of two types of particles: B54 and B107. The B107 grain has deeper grooves. Its gray intensity range is over 150, while its corresponding depth is over 20 mm. Its abrasive grinding causes the creation of valleys in the surface, resulting in reduced roughness motifs.

Pore forming material can be any solid or hollow substance, but it should have a specific gravity of at least 0.1. The pore-forming material content should be between 10 percent and 50 percent. However, if the volume percentage is more than 50%, there is a risk of burning out the pores and reducing the grinding wheel’s strength.

The surface topography of a wood processor sharpening wheel is determined by the density of the abrasive grain. This value is determined using statistical analysis. In order to determine how much of the surface is deformed, the researchers used the QBL index to determine the extent of defect. The Leitz knife surface clearance index value was 0.01675. If the QBL index value is less than or equal to zero, the surface is classified as defect-free.

The abrasive grain of the wood processor sharpening wheel is made up of two main parts: the abrasive grain and the vitrified binder. Pores are defined as areas of the grinding wheel that are 0.1 to one-half the average grain diameter. A grinding wheel with an average grain diameter of 90 um has a relatively uniform grain structure, while one with a grain diameter of 0.1 to one-half the grain diameter is low-porous.

Wood processor sharpening wheels are available in various hardness grades. The hardness of the wheel is defined by the resistance to shedding of grain. The harder the wheel is, the faster it will wear out. The hardness of a grinding wheel is also affected by the type of resin used and added filler materials. The hardness of a wheel is indicated by a letter in the DIN ISO 525 system. It ranges from “A” (extremely soft) to “Z” (extremely hard).

The hardness of the cutting edge of a sharpening wheel is a critical factor for determining its usefulness for the task. A properly sharpened blade will increase the operational quality and durability of the woodworking process. To achieve this, a sharpening wheel made of cubic boron nitride (CBN) material should be used. However, this type of sharpening wheel should be used only in cases where the sharpening wheel has been tested for durability.

The sharpening process requires a high-quality grinding wheel. A good quality one should be used on both the front and back teeth. The angle between the working face of the wheel and the back teeth should be parallel or equal. The wheel should also be cool to avoid damaging the carbide. In addition, it is not advisable to purchase a wheel that will last longer than it needs. This may result in wasted time and a badly ground wheel.

Hardness of wood processor sharpening wheels is an important factor in sharpening wood products. If the wheel is too hard, it will not be effective enough and will cause high temperature burns on the workpiece.


Wood processor sharpening wheels are diamond-tipped wheels that are used to sharpen the Simon carbide teeth on the processor. The right diamond will help the processor run more efficiently. A diamond grinding wheel should be purchased according to the need and budget of the user. The diamond concentration should be high enough to keep the tooth edges sharp and extend the life of the wheel.

Wood processor sharpening wheels are available in two types: manual and automatic. Manual grinders are manual, while automatic grinders use numerical control. Both types of grinders are capable of sharpening carbide saw blades. Before purchasing the machine, you should compare the labor cost with the cost of the diamond sharpening wheel.
