Improved Technical and Physical Utilisation of Vertical Surface Grinding Machines by Peripheral Face Grinding

  • R. Reinhold


This paper shows that the grinding process on conventional vertical surface grinding machines may be improved in intensity, economically, by a novel co-ordination of the setting quantities such as cutting depth and feed rate. As a prerequisite, the wear mechanism and the stage of self-sharpening under the given conditions must be known. Peripheral face grinding, constituting a grinding process for machining grey cast iron under externally optimised cutting conditions, will permit immediate grinding instead of the previously required milling. Labour productivity may be increased by up to 450 per cent and the specific power consumption reduced by 20 per cent.
