Lapping of WC-Co Cemented Carbide Ball by Eccentric Dual-Rotating V-Groove Lapping Mode
To study the lapping process and sphere-shaping mechanism of WC-Co cemented carbide ball under eccentric dual-rotating (EDR) V-groove lapping mode, the research center designs EDR V-groove lapping machine. This paper analyses sphericity of WC-Co cemented carbide balls after the lapping. During the lapping process, the diameter variation is measured every one hour. The diameter of ball is usually reduced 0.05mm every hour, which is more than the dual rotating plates(DRP) lapping mode, and the experiment is totally done 9 hours, the error of sphericity can be controlled around 0.005mm in the last, so the EDR V-groove lapping mode is more suitable for lapping of the WC-Co cemented carbide ball in roughness and semi-finishing process. In order to compare the material removal rate between DRP lapping mode and EDR V-groove lapping mode, the balls are also lapped under DRP lapping mode.
