Selection of Diamond/CBN wheels by work material

The suitable abrasive material and bond depend on the work material.Diamond wheel is selected for nonferrous materials and CBN wheel are for ferrous materials.Appropriate bond is also selected depending on the material of the work piece 
itself, processing, required accuracy, etc.Following is a general list, so please consult us for actual processing.
