Precision Grinding of Concave Spherical Surface of High-Alumina
The performances of high-alumina ceramic are analyzed such as physical and mechanical property. In consideration of its brittleness-ductility change, the critical cutting depth agc of high-alumina ceramic is 3μm. When the cutting depth of single grain is less than the critical cutting depth of alumina ceramic in precision manufacturing, the material is wiped off with ductility. So the cutting depth of single grain agm should be selected within 0.1~2.5μm.Grinding wheel sharp edge is utilized for the spherical surface generation cutting. The ceramic-bonded fine grain diamond wheel is selected after considering manufacturing technology, machining parameters, its making and mending. The granularity of grinding wheel is M1~M5 and the consistence is 125%. The method of spherical surface generation cutting and the effect of high-alumina ceramic ductile machining were verified by the experiment of high-alumina ceramic precision grinding using precision grinding machine MGK1420. The result shows that the surface quality is very high and achieves the requirements.
