    CBN Wheels Deliver Results for Bandsaw Sharpening

    Engis is a leader in the development of premium CBN electroplated grinding wheels for bandsaw sharpening.

    In the past, large bandsaws for stationary mills were sharpened either with conventional or zirconia abrasives in vitrified or resinoid bonds. These wheels required almost continuous dressing by the saw filer to retain the profile and prevent the wheels from burning the blade. Because Engis CBN wheels are electroplated onto a steel core, they offer significant advantages over the conventional abrasive wheels.

    These include:

          No loss of profile during grinding, no dressing required
          Cooler cutting CBN results in less metallurgical damage to the blade,
           and longer life between re-grinds. No need to re-open the wheel face
          The bandsaw itself is sharper after grinding and can be run at higher
           production speeds
          No abrasive dust generated that can damage machine components
         • Eliminates the possibility of wheel breakage

         • No loss in wheel diameter during grinding; wheel continues to operate
           at the optimum peripheral speed
         • Wheel cores can be recycled and replated, thus reducing waste

    Our tests at large mills in North America have proven tangible benefits to the mill not only in faster production levels, but more efficient saw filing and resharpening operations.
