Wet grinding

Wet grinding describes a grinding process under addition of water, emulsion or oil.

The main tasks of wet grinding are:

  • cooling and lubricating the processed surface
  • cleaning (removal of the grinding chip)
  • protecting the tool against corrosion
  • increasing of the processing speed
  • improving the surface finish
  • protection of the abrasive tool / increase of the tool's service life

End users constantly look for ways to speed up the production process. Wet grinding allows the user to achieve much faster through-feed times as opposed to dry grinding. Klingspor offers water-proof grinding tools that are suitable for all sorts of wet grinding applications.
