Characteristics and usage of flat grinding wheels for glass
Flat grinding diamond wheels (FEPA type 6A2) can be also called surface, or disc grinding wheels (more about disc grinding here). Flat grinding wheels are used for grinding various workpieces from glass (e.g. crystalline pendants for chandeliers, or other decorative purposes, perfume flacons, automobile headlight lenses, etc.), but also from technical ceramics (e.g. cartouches for water taps, etc.) and other similar very hard materials.
