Paper Abstract

Technology Develops Glass and Machines often more advanced than operators experience. Management who are conscious of labour costs accept that Diamond Tooling is the logical equipment for use on modern machines. Unfortunately, worn Diamond Wheels and Discs examined by us indicate operators are often failing to get best results from machines or tools. The Diamond Wheel Manufacturers Association are actively engaged trying to promote a co-ordinated education programme which when complete will form a base for specialised technical courses to be run at selected Polytechnics and similar teaching establishments. Meanwhile this paper indicates the types of Diamond Wheels that are most commonly misused and will enable you to begin your own investigations. Improvements in the range of precision machines which are now available enable your Diamond Wheel supplier, to supply alternative bond structures (other than conventional Metal Bond matrices) which would previously have been totally uneconomic due to the vagaries of the usual hand operated equipment in use.
