Effect of the Coolant Lubricant Type and Dress Parameters on CBN Grinding Wheels Performance
The efficiency of using of CBN grinding wheels highly depends on the dressing process as well as on the coolant lubricant used. The Institute of Grinding and Precision Technology (KSF) investigated the performance of vitrified CBN grinding wheels -being dressed using different parameters- while using two different grinding oils and two different water-miscible coolant lubricants. The obtained results show that the performance of the vitrified CBN grinding wheels regarding the quality of the workpiece surface, the grinding forces as well as the wear of the grinding wheel, highly depend on the dressing conditions and the type of the coolant lubricant used. Compared to the water-miscible coolant lubricants, the grinding oils show better results.
