Grinding wheels and cut-off wheels are covered in abrasive grit and used for grinding, cutting, and machining applications. Grinding wheels remove material from metal, glass, wood, brick, or concrete. Cut-off wheels cut or notch these surfaces. Wheels are used with power tools and industrial machines such as angle grinders or bench grinders. Cup grinding wheels are used in applications such as smoothing welding seams and preparing surfaces for painting. Diamond and CBN grinding wheels are used in toolmaking and sharpening applications.
