A double-sided grinder is typically a solid, flat grinder with just two sides pressed together. But a double-sided grinder also does come with its benefits too. Another benefit of a double-sided grinder unit is its ability to make consistent, even cuts across the face of the grinding wheel. This is especially important because even cuts will ensure the formation of even ground areas which are free from bumps and burrs that can affect the quality of your final grinding result.
The best way to appreciate the benefits of this type of grinding unit is to compare it to other types of grinders. In the same manner, there are two different types of material used in these units. One type of material is called “ceramic” and the other type of material is called “plastic.” Other differences include the number of teeth on the grinding plate along with the size of the grinding wheel. Another important difference is found in the teeth themselves, some models are designed to only accept one type of material whereas others are designed to accept both types.
A double-sided grinder, although it is not as efficient as a single-sided unit, is still considered to be very efficient when compared to the single-side grinders. This type of unit uses a rotating face which can either push material into the workpiece, or push material against the workpiece to prevent it from moving. When the grinding wheel is turning at a high rate of speed, it can cause a slight amount of friction. This slight amount of friction can help to shave off minutes or even seconds from the total amount of time it takes to grind a given amount of material.
Because of the need for accurate control, most modern machines use two-sided or even three-sided rotating faces. Some units have as many as four grinding surfaces. The most common type of two-sided unit is one that has two sides which face each other. A two-sided unit is the most efficient when using fast speeds, but can also be used to control material and prevent slipping when large workpieces are being worked on.
The two-sided units are more commonly used in applications where the machine will be stationary while the work surface is being ground. These include sanding and polishing machines as well as grinding. The advantage to a two-sided or even triple-sided rotating face grinder over a single-sided unit is the ability to angle the work in either direction, and to angle the grinding tool so that the face is in constant contact with the work.
The fine grinder, or the diamond blade, is one of the most popular types of machines used today. It is ideal for producing dresser head and dresser body frames. The fine grinder measures angles in degrees and clicks to determine the proper depth of cut. Most diamond blades are mounted on a workpiece so that the angle of cut can be determined automatically, which makes this type of fine grinder a preferred choice.
