Optimum Geometrical Arrangement of Workpiece in the Ultrasonic Vibration Shoe Centerless Grinding
This paper clarifies the influence of the geometrical arrangement of the workpiece on workpiece roundness in the ultrasonic elliptic-vibration shoe centerless grinding, and determines an optimum geometrical arrangement for minimizing the roundness error of the workpiece. The influences of the geometrical arrangements of the workpiece on workpiece roundness were investigated by computer simulation and practical grinding operations involving pin shaped workpieces. The experimental results agreed closely with those obtained by the simulation, the results of simulation and grinding tests indicated that the final roundness error of the workpiece after grinding reaches a minimum at a particular angle number (= + =7) for various values of the blade angle.
