Abrasive Grit Size
|Efficiency||More Aggressive||Less Aggressive|
|Grinding application||Stock Removal||Polishing|
|Cutting application||Fast cut||Precise cut|
Depends on the application, different size of the grain may be applied to the work piece.
Greater number = Coarse grain.
Abrasive wheel with coarse grain can remove work piece material at a large rate. It would leave a deeper gouge, suitable for heavy stock removal.
Lesser number = Finer grain.
Finer grain removes lesser work piece material. It is suitable for cutting expensive material, does not remove excess amount of expensive material.
Application: Non-ferrous metal, non-metal material, glass.
