Transform your metal stock removal applications with the CC-Grind Robust—the optimum solution for increased productivity, cost-effectiveness and improved operational efficiency. Its high-performance and ergonomic design surpasses that of conventional grinding discs, flap wheels and fibre discs, making it a modern choice for achieving unparalleled stock removal rates.
Extreme stock removal rate of PFERD’s Victograin
“The CC-Grind Robust is PFERD’s latest generation grinding disc developed with ergonomics and efficiency improvement in mind. The CC-Grind Robust consists of ceramic grains, optimally aligned on a glass fibre backing. The SGP version is part of PFERD’s Victograin family consisting of triangular-shaped ceramic grain. The product achieves an extremely high stock removal rate, which significantly reduces processing time resulting in improved overall operator productivity,” explains Dennis Phillips, National Sales Manager at PFERD-South Africa.

Compared to conventional abrasive grains such as aluminium oxide, Ceramics have a significant advantage due to their ability to continuously self-sharpen. As ceramics are used, their grains break down gradually, revealing new sharp cutting edges that consistently and aggressively cut throughout the product’s lifespan.
The Robust’s self-sharpening characteristics and cutting performance are even more pronounced. “Victograin starts as triangles and is constructed to break down in a pre-defined and controlled manner, Phillips states. When the triangular grain breaks down, new and extremely sharp cutting edges are ready to continue the abrasive’s aggressive and fast grinding.”
Robust optimises grinding processes and improves operational efficiency
“The extreme stock removal rate and long tool life of the Robust provide a significant advantage for metal manufacturing operations. By reducing component processing times, more work can be completed in the same amount of time. Despite its aggressive stock removal rate, the Robust still achieves a consistent and high-quality surface finish. Accordingly, PFERD’s CC-Grind Robust greatly optimises grinding processes and significantly enhances operational efficiency,” Phillips explains.

The high-performance ceramic abrasive grain removes metal quickly, substantially reducing the temperature in the grinding zone. As a result, there is no need for additional processing steps to remove heat discolouration.
Increased comfort, safety and precision
The ergonomic design of the grinding wheel results in significantly reduced levels of dust, noise and vibration.
According to Phillips, operators who use the Robust grinding wheel experience significantly less fatigue due to its reduced vibration levels. Additionally, the use of this consumable results in less strain on machinery, reducing the need for frequent replacement and ultimately leading to lower operational expenses.

The improved air quality in the workspace and lower noise levels also contribute to a safer and more comfortable working environment for operators, further enhancing their comfort and safety levels.
Furthermore, the lightweight Robust means an operator can easily guide the abrasive on the workpiece for precise and accurate stock removal.
Variety of applications on steel and stainless steel
The Robust product range includes 115mm and 125mm grinding wheels that can be used for a wide range of applications, both portable and stationary. It’s ideal for tasks on steel and stainless steel such as surface grinding, weld dressing, deburring, chamfering and removing imperfections. Due to the tool’s dimensional stability, the Robust can produce flat surfaces while its adapted tool geometry eliminates the need for special clamping flanges, making it compatible with all commercially available angle grinders.
