This study examines the development of a cutting wheel that performs ultra-high speed cutting typically at a wheel peripheral speed of 400 m/s. Using FEM, we found that a good material for the wheel core and flange is a titanium alloy or CFRP. Based on these results, we considered the following two methods of manufacturing a cutting wheel: (1) Sintering metal-bonded grindstone and a titanium alloy core. (2) Curing resinoid-bonded grindstone and a CFRP core. In this study, we manufactured a wheel using method (1). The resulting metal-bonded wheel using a titanium alloy core was a success in a rotation test, at a wheel peripheral speed of 450 m/s. This paper describes the manufacturing method, as well as the results of a stress analysis using FEM and the results of the rotation test.
