Processes[ edit ] Selecting which of the following grinding operations to be used is determined by the size, shape, features and the desired production rate. Unlike normal grinding, which is used primarily to finish surfaces, CFG is used for high rates of material removal, competing with milling and turning as a manufacturing process choice. Surfaces with a softer-grade resin bond are used to keep workpiece temperature low and an improved surface finish up to 1.
It dresses the wheel constantly during machining, keeping it in a state of specified sharpness. The limit on part length was erased. High-efficiency deep grinding HEDG uses plated superabrasive wheels, which never need dressing and last longer than other wheels. This reduces capital equipment investment costs. It requires high spindle power and high spindle speeds.
It also requires high spindle power and high spindle speeds. The workpiece is mounted on centers and rotated by a device known as a lathe dog or center driver. The abrasive wheel and the workpiece are rotated by separate motors and at different speeds. The table can be adjusted to produce tapers. The wheel head can be swiveled. The five types of cylindrical grinding are: outside diameter OD grinding, inside diameter ID grinding, plunge grinding, creep feed grinding, and centerless grinding.
Most cylindrical grinding machines include a swivel to allow the forming of tapered pieces. The wheel and workpiece move parallel to one another in both the radial and longitudinal directions.
The abrasive wheel can have many shapes. Standard disk-shaped wheels can be used to create a tapered or straight workpiece geometry, while formed wheels are used to create a shaped workpiece.
The process using a formed wheel creates less vibration than using a regular disk-shaped wheel. Surface grinding[ edit ] Surface grinding uses a rotating abrasive wheel to remove material, creating a flat surface. Grinding is commonly used on cast iron and various types of steel. These materials lend themselves to grinding because they can be held by the magnetic chuck commonly used on grinding machines and do not melt into the wheel, clogging it and preventing it from cutting.
Materials that are less commonly ground are aluminum , stainless steel , brass , and plastics. These all tend to clog the cutting wheel more than steel and cast iron, but with special techniques it is possible to grind them.
Others[ edit ] Centerless grinding Centerless grinding is when the workpiece is supported by a blade instead of by centers or chucks. Two wheels are used. The larger one is used to grind the surface of the workpiece and the smaller wheel is used to regulate the axial movement of the workpiece. Electrochemical grinding is a type of grinding in which a positively charged workpiece in a conductive fluid is eroded by a negatively charged grinding wheel.
The pieces from the workpiece are dissolved into the conductive fluid. In this ultra precision grinding technology the grinding wheel is dressed electrochemically and in-process to maintain the accuracy of the grinding. An ELID cell consists of a metal bonded grinding wheel, a cathode electrode, a pulsed DC power supply and electrolyte.
The wheel is connected to the positive terminal of the DC power supply through a carbon brush whereas the electrode is connected to the negative pole of the power supply.
Usually alkaline liquids are used as both electrolytes and coolant for grinding. A nozzle is used to inject the electrolyte into the gap between wheel and electrode. The gap is usually maintained to be approximately 0. During the grinding operation one side of the wheel takes part in the grinding operation whereas the other side of the wheel is being dressed by electrochemical reaction. The dissolution of the metallic bond material is caused by the dressing which in turns results continuous protrusion of new sharp grits.
The grinding wheel does not traverse the workpiece. Tapered holes can be ground with the use of internal grinders that can swivel on the horizontal. Pre-grinding When a new tool has been built and has been heat-treated, it is pre-ground before welding or hardfacing commences. This usually involves grinding the OD slightly higher than the finish grind OD to ensure the correct finish size.
Main article: Grinding wheel A grinding wheel is an expendable wheel used for various grinding and abrasive machining operations. It is generally made from a matrix of coarse abrasive particles pressed and bonded together to form a solid, circular shape, various profiles and cross sections are available depending on the intended usage for the wheel. Grinding wheels may also be made from a solid steel or aluminium disc with particles bonded to the surface.
Elid Grinding Machine
ELID grinding, fine bubbles, conductive rubber bond grinding wheel, mirror surface finishing, surface modification Abstract This study proposes a new grinding system using grinding fluid containing oxygenic fine bubbles O2FBs to realize high-performance electrolytic in-process dressing ELID using a conductive rubber bond grinding wheel. It was found that grinding fluid containing O2FBs dramatically increases the dissolved oxygen in the grinding fluid. These effects are thought to enhance the dressing performance of the conductive rubber bond grinding wheel. Grinding of pure titanium using the proposed grinding system was found to realize mirror surface finishing while increasing the amount of removed workpiece material, compared to when ELID was not applied and to when ELID grinding was conducted using a normal grinding fluid.
