The Effect of Workpiece Roundness of the Run-Out of CBN Electroplated Grinding Wheels


Article Preview

Electroplated CBN grinding wheels are not normally trued on a grinding machine and therefore inherently have a degree of run-out. The effect of run-out on workpiece roundness has both been modelled and measured experimentally. As well as affecting roundness, run-out can result in intermittent grinding around the wheel periphery, which can then lead to preferential wear on the most eccentric part of the wheel. This intermittent effect has been investigated by modelling the variation of the normal grinding force around the wheel and by measuring the variation of acoustic emission around the wheel during grinding tests.
