Study on Helical Drill Point Grinding with a Biglide Parallel Grinder
With the raising demand of the manufacturing technology and productivity in recent year, many new type drills, such as helical drills, have been developed. However, three axis simultaneous motions of a cutting tool grinder at same time are needed when helical drill points are ground. In this paper, a biglide parallel grinder is presented. During helical drill point grinding process with this biglide parallel grinder only two axis simultaneous motions are required. Moreover, the relationships between the helical drill point parameters and helical grinding parameters are derived. As a result, the flank surfaces of helical drill points are described.
