Solutions in Cylindrical Grinding Errors

July 11

There are several factors that can influence the grinding process producing a grinding error. There are physical and chemical errors and geometric errors. Physical and chemical errors are unwanted changes in the characteristics of the material on the surface of the part because of process parameters (such as feed and feed rates), grinding wheel, dressing tool, coolant. These errors become visible in the piece, leaving marks. In contrast geometric errors are deviations in the nominal geometry as the roundness. The main influence for a geometric error of roundness is the good condition of the centers, these must be non-oval and without burrs.
