Precision Grinding of High Chromium Steels Using Metal Bonded CBN Wheel


Article Preview

In this study, the influences of carbides and alloy additives on ground surface characteristics of several high Chromium (Cr) steels and abrasive grains of working surface were discussed. In the grinding using metal bonded CBN wheel, almost constant values in ground surface roughness and high grinding ratio were shown. 5% Cr steel with Vanadium, 8% Cr steel and 10% Cr steel showed a rougher surface than Cr steels with 3%, 4% and 5% due to the carbide inclusion. The grinding ratio of 5%Cr steel could be raised considerably by adding sulfur to it.
