Theoretical Analysis and Experimental Verification of Validity Finished by Abrasive Jet with Grinding Wheel as Restraint
The integration manufacturing technology is a kind of compound precision finishing process that combined grinding with abrasive jet finishing, in which inject slurry of abrasive and liquid solvent into grinding zone between grinding wheel and work surface under no radial feed condition when workpiece grinding were accomplished. The abrasive particles are driven and energized by the rotating grinding wheel and liquid hydrodynamic pressure and increased slurry speed between grinding wheel and work surface to achieve micro removal finishing. In the paper, the machining process validity was verified by experimental investigation. Experiments were performed with plane grinder M7120 and workpiece material 40Cr steel which was ground with the surface roughness mean values of Ra=0.6μm. The machined surface morphology was studied using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and metallography microscope and microcosmic geometry parameters were measured with TALYSURF5 instrument respectively. The experimental results show the novelty process method, not only can obviously diminish longitudinal geometry parameter values of ground surface, but also can attain isotropy surface and uniformity veins at parallel and perpendicular machining direction. Furthermore, the finished surface has little comparability compared to grinding machining surface and the process validity was verified.
