Comparison of Single-Wheel and Two-Wheel Machines

Thanks to the excellent flexibility of single-wheel machines, this machining method is still applied nowadays. Due to the investment costs for the machine, the hourly costs of single-wheel machines are much lower, so an economic efficiency calculation must be carried out before purchasing a machine. However, it’s clearly proven that even single-wheel machines are extremely economical for machining both sides of workpieces per ring. If it is possible to work with bound abrasive products, there is also a further advantage with the subsequent cleaning costs.
