A Study of Machining Characteristics of YG8 in High Speed Grinding
The machining characteristics of cemented carbide YG8 under high speed grinding conditions are reported in this paper. The experimental investigation focused on the grinding force, surface roughness and surface characteristics influenced by various wheel speeds, feed rates and depths of cut. Surface roughness was slightly improved by increasing of wheel speed, and the increase in hmax generated bigger grinding force and decreased specific energy, which could be explained by material removal mode and SEM micrographs of surface. The results revealed that high machining efficiency was achieved and relatively good surface roughness was obtained simultaneously.
