Increasing the efficiency of diamond edging of flat glass

  • A. V. Popov
Efficiency and Quality

Increasing grinding efficiency by optimizing binder hardness and using stronger diamond powders at optimal concentration to decrease diamond grinding wheel usage is examined. The new grinding wheels which have a binder with HB100-105 hardness and AS50–AS65 diamond powder at concentration 62.5% are recommended for industrial use.

Key words
