Experimental Investigation on Dry Point Grinding Process Based on Green Manufacturing
Due to point contact cause, the point grinding process have the lower grinding power and heat to measure and the better cooling conditions. For green manufacturing, the point grinding process has the significance to reduce the consumption of grinding fluid and improve the ground surface integrity and the process greenness. This study analyzes the geometric configuration of the contact area between the wheel and the workpiece in point grinding process, establishes the geometric and mathematic models of the contact area, and investigates the relations between the grinding parameters. The dry point grinding experiments are performed on the ground surface integrity. These investigations show that the dry grinding can be achieved in point grinding process under less depth of cut and the higher grinding speed for the high machining greenness demand.
