Part Processing by Grinding

Part of the Chapman and Hall Advanced Industrial Technology Series book series (AITS)


The problem of manufacturing high-quality parts at low cost confronts many companies. The cost of processing information required in the manufacturing process is substantial. With the introduction of computer-aided manufacturing, computer-aided process planning, and flexible manufacturing systems, the need for accurate, reliable process and equipment data is great. This chapter describes some of the factors involved in process planning, illustrates the detailed knowledge required to perform typical precision grinding operations, and describes computer-generated grinding cycles and multioperation grinding.
