Experimental Study on Point Grinding Technical Parameters Affecting Coolant Jet Parameters
Point grinding is a new type of high and super-high speed grinding process with a point contact zone and less grinding force. Because of the lower grinding power, the grinding heat in point grinding process is much less than that of the conventional grinding process. Therefore, the less grinding coolant jet parameters can be used during point grinding process. That is very propitious to the environment and resource, as well as the green manufacturing. Based on the mathematic model of the edge contact area of point grinding, the simulations of the edge contact area with point grinding angles and depth of cut was performed to study the grinding power. In addition, the relations between the grinding power and the depth of cut and vertical grinding angle were investigated. The dynamic pressure and velocity distributions in the airflow layer around the wheel edge were analyzed more by means of experiment. The point grinding experiment for grinding coolant jet parameters was performed.
