Grinding Performance of a Grain-Arranged Diamond Wheel against Industrial Pure Aluminum
A grain-arranged diamond wheel is developed and grinding performance of the wheel against industrial pure aluminum, one of the most hard-to-grinding materials, is investigated. The developed wheel efficiently ground pure aluminum without adhesion even when general-purpose grinding fluid, Type A3-1, was used. Moreover, wheel wear was not observed during the experiment, and grinding energy was extremely low. By using the developed wheel, a mirror surface can be easily obtained by one-pass surface grinding with very low table speed.
