New Method of Pre-Stress Grinding for Gearlike Cylindrical Surface of Linear Bearing
Gearlike cylindrical structure can be used as outer ring of linear bearing for saving material, but the machined surface quality and roundness of this kind of bearing is beyond control in cylindrical grinding and machining efficiency is low. To solve these problems, a new method of pre-stress grinding for gearlike cylindrical surface of linear bearing is put forward based on analysis on the principle of cylindrical centerless grinding. For implementing this process, a set of device with expanding mandrel for loading tensile pre-stress on bearing ring is designed and experiment of through-feed grinding is carried out on centerless grinder. The experimental results show that this method can get fine quality of machined surface and increase the grinding efficiency greatly.
