EDM Technologies in manufacturing

Surface grinding process refers to a vertical or horizontal axis grinding machine
attached to a square or circular table. The wheel attached to the table could be a
straight-type or cup-type wheel. During operations, the grinding wheel revolves around the spindle. Also, the workpiece is placed on the rotary or the
reciprocating table which is close to the grinding wheel. In all, there are four types of surface grinders.

  • The horizontal spindle/rotary table
  • The horizontal spindle/reciprocating table
  • The vertical spindle/rotary table.
  • The vertical spindle/reciprocating table

In the centerless grinding process, the workpiece is on a work-rest blade with the regulating wheel (a second wheel) support. When the wheel rotates, the workpiece pushes the work-rest edge down, and against the regulating wheel.
The regulating wheel rotates in the same direction as the grinding wheel to control the longitudinal feed of the workpiece, which is at a slight angle. The degree of the angle and the speed of the wheel influence the workpiece feed rate in this process. Hence, center holes are not required for operations or to secure the workpiece in place for centerless grinding.

Cylindrical grinding refers to the application of grinding the exterior surface of the cylinder, which may be varied in nature, such as straight, contoured and tapered. Cylindrical grinding is similar to the lathe-turning operations, unlike other CNC operations. The fast-rotating grinding wheel and the revolving workpiece are in contact with each other, but the rotating wheel is rotating in the opposite direction. When in contact, the grinding wheel successfully removes the material present on the workpiece. Cylindrical grinding process is suitable for working on a hardened workpiece or to replace the lathe with accuracy and super finish.

Internal grinding refers to giving an accurate finished touch to straight, tapered or formed holes. Here, a work-holding device such as a collet or chuck will hold the workpiece. The workpiece will be made to revolve using a motorized headstock while an additional motor operates in the same direction of the part, which rotates the grinding wheel. The depth of the cut is adjustable, and also the workpiece’s movements; inwards and outwards.

Primarily, these grinders sharpen machining tool cutters such as milling cutters, taps, and reamers. Various special tool attachments are available to sharpen these cutting tools. The general-purpose cutter grinder is one of the most versatile and preferred grinders.

PRO TIPS

ON USING GRINDING MACHINES EFFICIENTLY

  • You should be careful in selecting the wheel. When selecting a suitable wheel, the most important factors to consider are the wheel grade, abrasive type, grit size and bond type.
  • You should use advanced CNC programming techniques to optimize G-code.
  • By using CAM software, you can get precision in control over spindle speeds, feed rates, and depth of cut.
  • It is essential to have a comprehensive coolant management program for coolant cleanliness, and viscosity, to mitigate thermal damage and enhance chip evacuation efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Along with cost-effective and optimal performance, several other factors including budget, production volume, type of materials and their suitability, tolerances, and quality of surface finish required, are important when selecting the suitable grinding machine for a particular application.

Selection of the right grinding wheel and coolant helps in improving the efficiency. For productivity, the focus is on choosing the right CNC technology, the feed and depth of cut, and the extent of automation and regular maintenance of the machine.

Selection of the right grinding wheel and coolant helps in improving the efficiency. For productivity, the focus is on choosing the right CNC technology, the feed and depth of cut, and the extent of automation and regular maintenance of the machine.

Poor surface finish, chatter marks, thermal damage to workpieces, and grinding wheel wear are frequently occurring issues during grinding operations. To resolve these issues, pay attention to the effective use of the coolant, and truing or fine-tuning the grinding wheel and the machine.

The role of the coolant in the grinding process is to reduce the airborne particles, flush away the debris, and reduce the chances of contamination in the workspace. It is essential to select the suitable coolant and ensure its suitable application in the grinding machine for efficiency in operations, accuracy in delivery and longevity of grinding operations.
