Creep-Feed Grinding of Tungsten Carbide by Using Resin-Bonded Nickel-Coated Diamond Wheel
Force and specific energy are important factors in all abrasive machining operations especially in creep-feed grinding of hard materials. They have a high influence on the wheel wear, grinding accuracy, grinding temperature and surface integrity. This paper investigates the effect of grinding technological parameters on grinding force and specific energy in up-cut creep-feed grinding of cemented tungsten carbide with 20% cobalt using a resin-bonded nickel-coated diamond wheel. It was observed that increase of feed rate resulted in grinding force increase and specific energy decrease. Increased wheel-peripheral speed resulted in minor decrease of grinding force and specific energy increase.
