5 Common Carborundum Grinding Wheels Problems And Solutions

Whether you are a novice grinding expert or an experienced professional, we have all experienced the wrong results… not exactly the desired result. Although this can be frustrating, the main thing is to be able to figure out what happened, so you won’t encounter the same problem again. We’ve compiled the top 5 questions manufacturers have encountered while using the carborundum grinding wheels and troubleshooting guides on how to solve them.


When you find an incorrect place, be sure to check the following:

Condition of the diamond dressing tool – check for wear or passivation and then rotate the tip.
The coolant moves in the correct direction and the filtration works fine.

Now for the 5 most common problems and their solutions:

1. The workpiece is burnt

Reasons and solutions:

The feed rate is too fast – reducing the amount of stock per pass.
The dressing wheel is too thin – it is more “open” with a thicker trim.
Poor coolant direction – adjust the coolant direction to the grinding area.

2. Grinding Wheel loading and glazing

Reasons and solutions:

The gravel is too fine – try using a thicker grit or a softer wheel.
Abrasives are too durable – use sharper, more fragile abrasives (white).
The dressing wheel is too slow to trim – increasing the dressing speed.

3. Wheel tremor

Reasons and solutions:

Unsupported work – increase support.
Machine vibration – check the condition of the bearing.
The cutting rate is too heavy – try to reduce the cutting rate.
Wheel imbalance – check and adjust.
Spindle vibration – spindle bearing wear or flange imbalance.
The carborundum grinding wheels are incorrect – replace the diamond grinding wheels and check the installation.
The face of the wheel glazing – repair the wheel with a sharp finisher.

4. Surface finish is poor

Reasons and solutions:

Carborundum grinding wheels trimming error – Try a finer trim and slow down the trimmer.
Dressing tool wear-check, rotate or replace the dressing tool.
The gravel is too rough – use a finer grit size.
The cut off wheels are too hard – use a softer carborundum grinding disc.
Vibration/Vibration – See question 3 Wheel chattering.

5. Do not hug in the corner

Reasons and solutions:

Sand size is too large – use a smaller sand size (maximum sand diameter should be less than 1.5 times the angular radius)
Wheel ornaments are wrong – try more beautiful clothes. The face and side should be true with the steering wheel.
The shape of the carborundum grinding wheels are wrong – the dresser has worn out. Use a sharp dressing table.
