Hard Turning as an Alternative to Grinding : Production ...

Jan 22, 2010· Hard turning is typically defined as the turning of a part or barstock of harder than 45HRC on a lathe or turning center. Since surface roughness of Rmax/Rz=1.6s can be achieved, hard turning is often considered a replacement for grinding operations or as a pre-grinding process.

Grinding is an abrasive machining process that uses a grinding wheel as the cutting tool. A wide variety of machines are used for grinding: Hand-cranked knife-sharpening stones (grindstones) Handheld power tools such as angle grinders and die grinders;

Grinding on a Swiss : Production Machining

Nov 15, 2012· Grinding on a Swiss offers several advantages over milling. Grinding is a continuous cutting process, which can provide a better finish than milling's interrupted cutting process, which induces vibration into the part being machined. Grinding …

Boring (manufacturing) - Wikipedia

In machining, boring is the process of enlarging a hole that has already been drilled (or cast) by means of a single-point cutting tool (or of a boring head containing several such tools), such as in boring a gun barrel or an engine cylinder.Boring is used to achieve greater accuracy of the diameter of a hole, and can be used to cut a tapered hole. Boring can be viewed as the …

applications in grinding machines. It is able to provide solutions for: - Automatic balancing of the grinding spindle on 1 and 2 plane - Touch detection to control the contact grinding wheel-work piece and grinding wheel-dresser, by using acoustic emission and/or power sensors - In-process and post-process gauging (absolute or comparative)

The Powerful Potential of Peel Grinding

Basically, peel grinding uses a narrow grinding wheel, usually 0.25″ (6.4 mm) or less in width, to grind a part. Because the process is much like cutting with a conventional lathe, it is a major competitor to hard turning. The advantages of peel grinding include: Dramatically reduced cycle time. Combined operations. Decreased throughput time.

Regenerative chatter in self-interrupted plunge grinding ...

Oct 25, 2016· For the stable grinding or small-amplitude chatter, the grinding wheel is in constant contact with the workpiece and the cutting process is continuous. For the large-amplitude chatter, however, the lost of contact between the workpiece and the tool occurs, and thus the cutting is intermittent or self-interrupted [ 25 ].

Grinding Wheel Condition Prediction and Improvement

Traditionally, the grinding operation is interrupted to dress grinding wheels using methods such as stick or wire brush dressing. Several in-process dressing methods have been developed such as mechanical in-process dressing, electrolytic in-process dressing, electro-contact discharge dressing and waterjet in-process dressing.

8 Principles of Centerless Grinding

Dec 08, 2016· A downside of centerless grinding is you can't have as many multiple axes operating on the workpieces. However, there are many parts where the process addresses the limitations of machining in terms of dimensions, materials, and surface finishes. That's why we like to say that where machining ends, the centerless grinding process begins.
