Grinding segments are available in many shapes and sizes. Known generically as Plough Grinding Segments, they are normally used where high stock removal is required e.g. the grinding of plates to achieve flatness, prior to machining.
Available in both vitrified and resin bond segments are normally manufactured using brown, white or pink aluminium oxide, however for applications where heat is an issue a percentage of ceramic grain can be used.
Vitrified segments offer free cutting, they are generally more aggressive and induced porosity leads to cooler cutting making them more suitable for harder materials.
Common machines are: Snow, Lumsden and Churchill.
