View Full Version : stone/granite polishing

12-01-2003, 08:14 PM

I am running a CMS Bremmbana Maxima CNC machine for stone (granite)
and am looking for some insight into other user's opinions on tooling.
Specifically rubber polishing wheels - we have been and are currently
using resin polishing wheels (some ADI tools and others mfg by
Diamut). I would appreciate anyone who could offer some insight as to
their experiences using rubber polishing tooling. Does it produce the
same or similar shine on the milled edge as resin? What type of useful
life can I expect from the tools? Are there any manufacturers you
would recommend? I welcome any other related information as well.
Thank you for you time.

We've been using ADI resins for 8 months now. I've had to replace only a few. Getting over 1000m on each on average. I tried a few rubber wheels and when not set up right, burned them. I burned about 5 before I got it working right. I find with the rubber, the lines are much more noticeable. For instance, If I run a Z profile over it and polish it, I will still get my guys to touch it up... so why bother. Just let them polish it.
