The Mira Ice product line of gear grinding wheels was developed in order to meet the requirements of profile grinding larger gears. A new approach in the development of this grinding wheel enables results to be achieved in terms of economic efficiency and cool grinding that were previously unheard of in the profile grinding of gears. The Mira Ice grinding wheel has been further optimized on the basis of the leading product line from Burka-Kosmos. The use of new grain qualities and the new high-strength bond system guarantees particularly cool grinding. Longer cycle times between dressing and shorter grinding times significantly reduce the processing costs per gear. During testing against the Burka-Kosmos SK23 ceramic grinding wheel stock removal volume was increased by almost 400 percent on a 3.6 diametral pitch gear. This increase, along with the need for fewer dressing cycles, resulted in a 30 percent reduction in total machining time.
