Do We Understand the Grinding Process? 380129

A PARTLY descriptive, partly analytical discussion of facts and opinions concerning the fundamentals of occurrences in the zone of metal removal in conventional surface- and cylindrical-grinding operations is set forth in this paper.
The paper considers in sequence the basic geometrical interrelationships involved; it discusses broadly the contributing causes of heat production in both work and wheel; it comments on effects of dressing practice and kinds and uses of coolants; and finally it illustrates what is attempted in the selection of a wheel for a particular job.
Cam-profile grinding in some of its phases is touched upon as one familiar example of a peculiarly repetitive process cycle occurring while the grinding wheel progressively is changing remarkably in cutting characteristics.
And it was all started by the innocent query: “Do We Understand the Grinding Process?”
