Research of Grinding Revolving Curved Surface with Arc Envelope Grinding Method


Article Preview

Revolving curved surface of mould should have low roughness as well as high accuracy of geometry profile. And it is an essential method to meet the accuracy request with grinding process. In order to solve the problem of grinding such revolving curved surface, an Arc Envelope Grinding Method (AEGM) is presented in this paper, which uses a wheel with arc section. By analyzing the movement of the grinding point, the relationship between the length of trajectory that the grinding point moves along and radius of the arc, curvature of workpiece is explained. Meanwhile, the relationship between the radius of arc, the curvature and the grinding area is studied.
