Let's Talk Sense About Abrasive Machining 640141

The grinding process has lagged behind other metal cutting processes because of lack of universal data that can be used to predict results, and because there are usually more than 30 interdependent, unevaluated variables connected with each grinding job. This repels people who insist on proved data before making a change. There is little hope of such data being available in the near future; however, a simple method of trial and error will achieve the maximum effect of abrasive machining on jobs already in production. This method works the machine and wheel to higher production until some physical limitation has been reached that, for the moment, cannot be overcome by present techniques.
