Saw Grinding and Resharpening
Production and Sharpening of Circular and Band Saw Blades
Saws are an integral part of many industries, when a blade dulls or is otherwise damaged it is generally more economical to sharpen the sawblade or replace the damaged teeth than to purchase a new blade.
Saw sharpening was once the realm of the skilled artisan, but today it’s a precise science. Hard saw teeth must be exactingly ground into the desired shapes, repeatedly and unerringly by saw grinding machines and technicians. It’s a tough job, and Mirka® Cafro superabrasive wheels are up to it.
Whether for the topping and facing of circular saw blades, the profiling of band saw blades, or for side grinding operations, Mirka® Cafro wheels are the right choice for steel, stellite, and tungsten carbide grinding saw grinding and sharpening.

The facing of circular saw teeth requires a superabrasive wheel capable of grinding precisely between saw teeth while maintaining stability and holding its profile. It takes a specialized wheel for specialized machines, and Mirka® Cafro range of stocked wheels and standard shapes are up to the task.
The top grinding of circular saw blades requires a free-cutting superabrasive wheel capable of efficiently and repeatedly grinding and forming the cutting angle of tungsten carbide saw teeth. Mirka® Cafro line of stocked and standard-sized wheels are capable of matching the needs of your specific machine to create an optimal saw tooth topping operation.
Side grinding is a critical operation for creating a smooth cutting circular saw after the facing and topping operations. The superabrasive wheel must be free cutting and leave a precise surface. Mirka® Cafro portfolio includes a variety of shapes and bonds that are ideal for your specific side grinding machine.
Profile grinding is a key operation in the sharpening of bandsaw blades, as it restores and reshapes the specific profile of the tooth and gullet to a chosen form. A superabrasive wheel used for this operation needs to be precisely shaped to produce the chosen profile and be able to maintain the profile without breaking down. Mirka offers a range of standard wheels that can be profiled as needed to produce your specific tooth geometry.
Side grinding is a critical operation for creating a smooth-cutting band saw after the profiling operation. The superabrasive wheel must be free cutting and leave a precise surface. Mirka´s portfolio includes a variety of shapes and bonds that are ideal for your specific side grinding machine.
