Definition

Various standards define creep feed grinding as a peripheral grinding process with a relatively large depth of cut ae and accordingly low feed rate vf (ISO 3002-5 1989; VDI 3390 2014; VDI 3391 2016). Commonly, surface grinding is referred to as creep feed grinding when depth of cut ae ≥0.1 mm and a feed rate vf ≤3,000 mm/min are applied. In contrast, pendulum grinding can be characterized by varying ae and vf opposingly; hence, a relatively high feed rate vf and low depth of cut ae are applied. For a better understanding of creep feed grinding, comparisons will be drawn between both mentioned grinding strategies in the following.

Theory and Applications

Creep feed grinding is a special grinding strategy where considerable material removal rates and high surface qualities are attained along with quite low grinding wheel wear. It was applied in the early 1950s for the first time and lead to an extensive development of machines, grinding...
