Innovative light-weight basic body for superabrasives
Hermes Schleifmittel has recently started to offer its customers an efficient and economical alternative to conventional steel base bodies for high-performance wheels with CBN or diamond abrasive coatings.
The new Hermes Light Core basic bodies combine the advantages of steel basic bodies with those of significantly lighter fibre composites, such as CFRP:
- Required blow-out safety and axial rigidity for high-speed applications up to 100 m/s
- Up to 70% lower weight for better handling and less stress on load-bearing grinding machine components
- Higher surface quality due to better vibration damping and compensation of negative process dynamic behavior
The highlight is the application-specific design of the Hermes Light Core body. In contrast to conventional CFRP base bodies, this also permits oblique plunge-cut grinding processes or other processes with axial loads.
The development of tailor-made grinding solutions for our customers is a fundamental component of innovative product development at Hermes Schleifmittel.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like us to adapt individual Hermes Light Core basic bodies for you and your grinding process.
