The Effect of a Rotating Heat Pipe in a Brazed Diamond Grinding Wheel on Grinding Temperature
A new type of brazed diamond grinding wheel with a rotating heat pipe is developed to effectively remove the heat generated in the grinding zone meanwhile minimize the pollution and contamination of the environment. A grinding temperature-measurement experiment of titanium alloy was conducted to evaluate enhanced heat transfer effect of the rotating heat pipe on the grinding zone. The experiment results show that, when grinding using the wheel with heat pipe the grinding temperature decreases 30% than that using the wheel without heat pipe.
