Electrochemical Wheels

  • Everite offers wheels 8-12” diameters at various thicknesses and several bonding types. (Please click here to see list).  Other wheels are available upon request.
  • Wheels should be stored flat in a dry environment.  They can warp or break if not handled properly.
  • Bonding types (in order of standard to best bond):
    • Phenolic Copper Resin Bond – offered in either Aluminum or Cermet.  This low heat cured (350˚ F) bond.  These wheel can be dressed.
    •  Keytone Bond – offered in either Cermet or Silicon Carbide.  This is a higher heat cured (450˚ F) bond.  These wheels are difficult to dress.
    • Polymide Bond – offered in either Cermet or Diamond.  This is the highest heat cured (600˚ F) bond.  These wheels must be dressed by Everite.
  • Construction of the wheels are either: Solid (abrasive material from the core to the OD) or Metal (abrasive material only from the OD to the metal disc).

  • Wheel life is a variable depending on many factors such as the material being cut, part diameter, wall thickness, number of parts in the array, flow rate, wheel speed, voltage and feed rate.

Variables Vs Condition

  • Typical RPM used for 10″ wheels
    • Phenolic Bond – 1700 to 2300 RPM
    • Cermet with Polymide Bond – 2300 to 2800 RPM
    • Diamond – 2700 to 3200 RPM
