Manufacturer gains efficiencies with CGW vitrified wheels.

CGW customers have found that surface grinding is the most common method for difficult-to-machine materials. Grinding can be an economical alternative to other machining processes.

A manufacturer of mechanical stamping presses was looking to improve the performance of its MRO Department. The preceding supplier of vitrified wheels was consistently late with delivery and also more importantly the wheels were inferior and experiencing rapid wear.

The CGW Abrasive Team that saw both the distributor sales representative and the CGW Sales Manager visit the site and developed not only a product solution that would stand up to the application-but also that the vitrified wheels be available onsite on a timely fashion.

The customer saw a substantial improvement within the re-manufacturing segment of the business due both to the performance of a superior product combined with top customer service.

The CGW line of vitrified grinding products is specifically designed to provide unparallel machining within the demanding fields of aerospace, processing and automotive. At CGW Abrasives we are committed to continually investing in our products and service to help our customers grow. Learn more at
