Combikorn Technology is a special coating process developed by VSM‘s Research and Development staff and is now available from General Cutting Tools. The unique process provides the ceramic cutting grain with a firm support structure allowing for easy grain regeneration during the application process.
Higher Cut Rate
VSM’s Ceramic grain is a self-sharpening grain engineered to provide a more aggressive cut and produce higher rates of stock removal than conventional grains.
Long-Lasting Grain Saves Money
VSM’s Ceramic Grain product has the reputation of being the toughest, longest-lasting metal removal product on the market today. Compared to other conventional grain products that immediately begin to lose aggressiveness once grinding begins, the ceramic abrasive maintains its cut rate without needing significant additional pressures (see chart). This constant cut rate reduces grinding time, resulting in less operator fatigue, while increasing productivity and reducing abrasive costs.
VSM’s ceramic products are available in a variety of backings from flexible to extremely durable. This backing range allows customers to use VSM products in a variety of applications, from robotic applications to the most severe plunge grinding applications.
VSM offers standard products available for grinding metals like hardened steels, carbon steels, and forgings and castings where heat sensitivity is not a factor.
VSM’s top-sized products incorporate a self-lubricating grinding layer, which helps to reduce heat during the grinding process. This added layer allows the grain to continue cutting at its optimum level.
Resin Fiber Disc Products
Ceramic Resin Fiber Discs in both standard and top-sized products are available in 4-1/2″, 5”, 7” and 9-1/4″ diameters.
