Gardner Abrasives, part of Cinetic Landis Corp., offers the BDP bond system for centerless grinding applications. The system was developed to increase production rates and lower cost per unit. The BDP bond features a high-porosity design said to produce higher G ratios and provide freer cutting in OD grinding applications. The added porosity enables better penetration of coolant into the grinding zone, resulting in fewer dressings and wheel changes and the capability to grind more parts while lowering abrasive cost per part, the company says.

    Because creep-feed grinding is essentially a milling process, why not use a VMC? A grinding machine supplier describes how a VMC platform can make creep-feed grinding more effective.

  • Jig Grinding On A Machining Center

    Roughing and finishing on a single machine, using a single setup, has appeal for most shops. The advantages in time savings and accuracy are obvious. Eliminating the transport of workpieces between machines, as well as the setup for those secondary operations, is a boon for throughput. Critical features that need to maintain dimensional relationships can be much more reliably produced if machined complete in one clamping.

  • What Is Single Point OD Grinding?

    Two enabling technologies -- superabrasive wheels and high precision servo control -- come together to provide a contour grinding process that resembles an OD turning operation. For many medium volume OD grinding applications, this method may be a means to consolidate several manufacturing steps into a single setup.
