Diamond & cBN - CNC Wheels

Diamond & cBN - CNC - Norton GForce Univel Winter

These superior, pre-engineered wheels have been specifically developed to meet the demanding needs of precision cutting tool manufactures as well as re-sharpeners. The use of the highest quality diamond and cBN abrasives matched to superior high temperature bond systems, guarantees high performing wheels. These wheels are manufactured under the strictest quality control protocols ensuring the same, consistent, high-performing product. Cutting tool manufactures who use these wheels report much improved dimensional accuracy and superior cutting edges.

This product offering provides wheel sizes for most CNC machines and wheels shapes to produce the required cutting tool geometries. If you do not find a wheel in this offering to suit your specific needs, a custom-made wheel can be provided.

Typical Applications: CNC round tool grinding, fluting, end fluting, gashing, and OD relief

BEST  Norton Polyimide CNC Wheels – Maximize the performance of today’s CNC machines

Univel and G-force premium products

  • Polyimide bond systems with superior form-holding and lower-power requirements compared to premium competitive wheels   
  • Reduced frequency of dresses
  • Decreased chances of burn and heat damage to the part


  • Unique bond technology  excels on round, carbide and steel tools 
  •  Abrasive is strongly held – and wear-resistant
  • Self-dressing; maintains a consistently sharp grinding edge
  • Capable of very high material removal rates
  • The only product on the market that is truly rotary dress-able, allowing for lights-out manufacturing
  • Leads the industry in depth of cut, traverse rates and form holding to reduce total grinding costs by 30% or more

Paradigm – for round tool flute grinding

Proprietary new bond delivers the best grinding performance on carbide and high-speed steel round tool fluting, with the fastest cycle times and lowest cost per part.

  • Online and offline truable for maximum productivity 
  • Wear and load resistant, with better control over core growth; ideal for grinding 6% to 12% cobalt
  • High grain retention and uniform structure ensure high G-ratio, up to 2.5 times longer life, and 30% higher MRR than existing superabrasive wheels
  • Low specific cutting energy results in faster grinding with lower power draw and less burn
