SUPER-CUT offers a full range of services to keep your glass fabrication process running smoothly. We stand behind our products with comprehensive support services that optimize performance in glass grinding, drilling and cutting applications — from diamond grinding wheel reprofiling and custom product design to technical training and process audits.
High grinding wheel performance has been the hallmark of SUPER-CUT products since the beginning.
As a global leader in diamond grinding wheel reprofiling, SUPER-CUT operates 14 redress centers around the world, where we restore wheel profiles to original condition using our proprietary Electrode Discharge Machining (EDM) technology.
Benefits of EDM Wheel Reprofiling
Steps to a Quality Redress
SUPER-CUT’s computer-controlled process protects the diamond from damage and produces a superior wheel surface. Each redress wheel is precision balanced for efficient and reliable performance in your operation.
Our wheel reprofiling service includes the following steps:
Quick Start Profiling
For the most demanding applications, SUPER-CUT offers our Quick Start profiling service. This special wheel profiling technique enables quick startup with excellent glass edge quality, delivering high-speed grinding from the first piece with no rejected glass.
Ask your sales engineer how SUPER-CUT’s reprofiling service can bring new life to your wheels.
SUPER-CUT is with you every step of the way to ensure you get the most out of our products. We offer comprehensive training for operators, engineers, management, administrators and purchasing.
Our customized training programs cover everything from cutting and coolants to profile design and diamond bond theory. We also train wheel and drill operators on setup and troubleshooting of glass edge defects.
Contact a SUPER-CUT sales engineer to arrange a training program for your staff.
SUPER-CUT offers diamond pencil edging wheels and drills engineered to fit your specific needs. Our engineering team will work with you to custom-design glass profiles that deliver a superior ground edge, quick startup and high oven yields.
Our wheels meet the highest edge quality requirements in automotive glass, with high-speed grinding available up to 40 M/min. travel speed.
While diamond pencil edging is the norm in automotive glass, certain customers may request a basket shape. SUPER-CUT offers a variety of popular basket shape profiles or will custom design one to your specifications. Our special split-mesh diamond bond specification is perfect for basket-shape profiles.
We also offer diamond/bond specifications and profiles for a seamed edge.
High Quality Production with Lower Costs
SUPER-CUT diamond and metal bonds offer the best wear rates in the industry and meet the highest edge quality requirements in automotive glass. Our bonds hold the profile shape, resulting in long, high-quality production runs that increase the number of redress in each wheel and lower your costs significantly.
Ask your sales engineer for a profile custom designed to your application for improved startup and edge quality.

SUPER-CUT Diamond Drill Bits
SUPER-CUT has mastered the science of drilling holes in glass. We manufacture drills custom engineered to your application and available in just two-to-four weeks.
Utilizing our vast knowledge and experience in pre-furnace processes and equipment, a SUPER-CUT engineer will conduct a field process review to systematically and methodically identify key triggering areas for process improvements or troubleshooting. Companies that are in constant improvement mode find this exercise very helpful with hands-on training and idea generation for their next improvement projects.
Contact your SUPER-CUT sales engineer for a full pre-furnace process audit. We also offer concentrated audits on cutting, grinding, drilling and coolant application.
For many companies, Six Sigma means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving toward six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process — from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.
Let SUPER-CUT aid you in your data gathering and reporting processes to improve control over your grinding operation.
Coolant guard plugging is a common issue that plagues every line in an automotive fabrication plant. This issue is so severe that proper process control calls for coolant guards to be changed with every wheel change. Plants that do not carry an excessive inventory of extra guards should thoroughly clean coolant guards each week.
For many operations, keeping coolant guards clean and in good repair is an ongoing challenge.
SUPER-CUT offers an easy-to-use Coolant Guard Maintenance and Refurbishing Program to keep your guards performing at their best.
Simply send your dirty coolant guards to SUPER-CUT once a week. Each guard will be 100% sandblast cleaned, repaired as necessary and returned to you ready for the next week’s production run.
Eliminate the worry of edged defects and costly downtime from plugged coolant guards with the SUPER-CUT Coolant Guard Maintenance and Refurbishing Program.

SUPER-CUT manufactures both standard and custom grinding wheel arbors designed for quick mounting of grinding wheels to your grinder. Our quick-change wheel arbors are precision-balanced hardened steel with outstanding wear resistance. Made to the tightest machining tolerances with run-out specs from +0.000 – 0.005 mm, SUPER-CUT arbors are used by automotive glass fabricators all over the world.
Need a custom arbor that will mount two PE grinding wheels or a grinding wheel and a polish wheel? SUPER-CUT has you covered.
Some plants use U150 mm, U152 mm and U157 mm PE grinding wheels, all with different bolt hole patterns. SUPER-CUT will make a custom arbor with the wheel and bolt hole pattern of your choice that can be used on different grinders.
This results in a huge inventory savings for your plant, along with greater convenience. No longer will you be running around the plant looking for the correct wheel because of minor mounting differences.
Speak with a sales engineer to learn how you can increase the efficiency of your grinding process with a SUPER-CUT quick-change wheel arbor.
