Grind & Shaping FAQs

There are a couple of ways to create a special wheel shape. Generally we prefer a blueprint with the specs noted, but we can also work from a less formal diagram.

Keep in mind, though that Mach-B Grinding Wheel Shaping & Resizing is tooled only for Vitrified Bonded Wheels.

Short answer; yes.

Long answer; there are actually 26 “standard” wheel shapes. Mach-B only shows the 15 most popular shapes on the website.  Additionally, there are 13 standard wheel faces available so there is lots of potential for standard wheels based on the shape and face combination.

You can either call, email or fax your specs or a blueprint to us. We will quote based on those specs.

Mach-B has several machines that can be used based on what operation is being performed. Among the machines available are:

  • Speed Testers for different sized wheels
  • Parallel finisher for wheels and removing small amounts of material
  • Face Dresser for creating angles and sizing the OD
  • OD Machine for reducing the OD of large wheels
  • ID Machine for increasing the ID of wheels and creating recesses
  • Slotting Saw for cutting coolant slots into the faces of the wheels
  • Balancing Stand for testing wheels balance
