Study on Precise Rubbing Technology of HIPSN Ceramic Balls
One of the most applications of HIPSN(Hot-Isocratic Pressed Silicon Nitride) ceramic ball bearings is applied to the high-speed spindle of numerical control machine tools and high-speed precise mechanics. However, it is very difficult to process the HIPSN ceramic ball bearing. In this paper, a new grinding process method, taper rubbing method, is applied to process the HIPSN ceramic ball. Mechanical analysis of taper rubbing method is given, and the influence of grinding parameters on the ceramic material excision rate, surface quality of ceramic ball and wear and tear ratio of diamond wheel is studied by taper rubbing method. The experimental results show that the HISPN ceramic balls of G3 and G5 are obtained with taper rubbing method by properly controlling the motion of HIPSN ceramic balls and selecting reasonable processing technological parameters.
