Grinding Equipment

Grinding is a machining process that takes a very light “cut” using abrasive media—typically an abrasive grinding wheel. Grinding wheels with different grit sizes achieve rougher or finer grinding passes, according to the needs of the application. When precise accuracy and/or surface finish are required, grinding is often used as a finishing process after some other metalworking operation. Grinding is also an effective process for machining workpiece materials that are too hard for milling or turning. Grinders for round parts include cylindrical and centerless grinders. Grinders for flat surfaces are called surface grinders. Form grinders move the work and/or the wheel in various axes to grind surfaces that are precisely contoured. Grinders used to create and sharpen cutting tools are called tool & cutter grinders.

How to Calculate Wheel Life in a Creep-Feed Grinding Process

For non-continuous-dress creep-feed grinding, the calculation is straightforward. For continuous dressing, the calculation has more steps, but in either case, it is possible to manage the cost of grinding by predicting the life of the wheel.

How to Reduce the Effect of Vibration in Production Grinding

It is not always possible to correct a vibration problem as soon as that problem begins to appear. Rather than stopping production, here is a means of continuing to realize smooth, efficient grinding until the underlying cause of vibration can be addressed.
