Multimicroprocessor Control for Plunge Grinding

  • S. Spiewak
  • H. Kaliszer


The overall objective of the paper is to analyse a modular microprocessor based adaptive control system for a plunge grinding process. The system minimises the machining costs and provides the required workpiece geometry as specified by the tolerance limites of size, form and surface roughness. To achieve the above a suitable mathematical model of the grinding cycle has been introduced and confirmed by experimental results.
