Contact wheels for belt grinding

Contact wheels are an essential factor for achieving perfect results when belt grinding. Contact wheel and grinding belt need to made compatible: hard X-belts for hard contact wheels, soft J-belts for soft contact wheels. Replacement of ablated coatings is possible with all types.

Smooth contact wheelUsed with fine grinding, low noise
Ribbed contact wheelMore effective than with smooth wheels. Broad ribbing makes wheel more aggressive, fine ribbing is for fine grinding
Possible ribbingSaw tooth, standard, wolf tooth
Hardness of contact wheelsHardness of contact wheels is measured in "degree" Shore.
20–30 degree Shore = very soft
40 degree Shore = soft
60 degree Shore = medium
80 degree Shore = hard
90 degree Shore = very hart
