On Electrorheological Effect Instantaneous Tiny Grinding Wheel for Fine Machining

Abstract:

Article Preview

As a special instantaneous bond, particle-dispersed Electrorheological-fluid (ER fluid) is used to cohere abrasive particles in the ER fluid so as to form dynamical tiny grinding wheel in grinding. This technique eliminates the dimension restriction of traditional concretion abrasive grinding wheel and is applicable in optics glass polishing to meet machining demands for micro-apparatus within millimeter or sub-millimeter microstructure. By regulating some parameters such as voltage, ingredient, volume rate of ER fluid, machining time, as well as distance between cone-tool and workpiece etc, the size, rigidity, and abrasive mutual combine-intensity of the micro grinding wheel can be controlled in order to achieve an expected machining effect. Experiments have been carried out by using SEM to analyze the characteristics in applying this technique.
