The Application of Three-Dimensional Surface Parameters to Characterizing Grinding Wheel Topography
White light interferometer was employed to measure the surface topography of 60# and 120# alumina grinding wheel. The correlation of wheel topography and its performance was characterized through the three-dimensional (3D) surface characterization parameters of “Birmingham set”. Birmingham parameters were used to characterize the performances of grinding wheel, in items of grain density, grain shape and grain sharpness. The effects of sampling interval on the 3D surface parameters were analyzed and the optimal sampling interval was selected to calculate the 3D surface parameters.
