Research on Uniform Surface Roughness in Grinding of Revolving Curved Surface
When grinding the revolving curved surface with Arc Envelope Grinding Method, the different curvatures in the convex and concave surfaces make a great difference in the surface roughness. In order to solve this problem, the relationship among envelope height, feeding rate, rotational speed and curvature of workpiece was analyzed based on equal-envelope-height grinding method. The results presented that, low feeding rate of grinding wheel and high rotational speed of workpiece were helpful to obtain smaller envelope height. And the smaller the radius of workpiece curvature, the more different the surface roughness. Besides, it was an effective method to solve this problem by changing feeding rate. The feeding rate should be changed directly proportionally to radius of workpiece curvature. Then, the experimental results indicate that, the fluctuation ratio of surface roughness with variable feeding rate is reduced to 4.896% from 26.17% with constant feeding rate. It proves the validity of hypothesis.
