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 has been clearly proved that even single-wheel machines are extremely economical for machining both sides of work pieces per ring. If it is possible to work with bound abrasive products, there is also a further advantage with the subsequent cleaning costs.
