Double sided fine grinding machines, use fixed abrasive in lieu of loose abrasive for precision finishing. Depending upon the application, fine grinding technology utilizes fixed abrasive diamond or CBN suspended in resin, metal, and vitrified bonds to grind a wide range of materials to very tight specifications. Fine grinding technology uses similar planetary machine designs and kinematics to traditional lapping technology, with several significant advantages.
Fine grinding offers several advantages over the traditional lapping process yet still yielding similar flatness, parallelism, surface finish, and size tolerances. The fine grinding process is much cleaner than lapping, virtually eliminating swarf disposal and work piece cleaning issues. This process is also typically 3-20 times faster than lapping, blurring the lines between traditional lapping and grinding technologies.
Peter Wolters fine grinding equipment and processes are bridging the gap between traditional flat lapping and grinding machines, utilizing the best technologies of both. Effective component processing using fine grinding technology requires heavy-duty equipment with sophisticated control systems capable of high plate rotation speeds and down-pressure generation.
