Application of 3D-CAD Random Model to Prediction of Ground Surfaces by Helical Scan Grinding
This paper deals with prediction of improvement in surface roughness in helical scan grinding by simulation of virtual ground surface with a 3D-CAD model. It has been found that, by choosing the value of parameters of several grit conditions such as grit arrangement, protrusion height, inclination angle and so on, randomly for a real wheel, the maximum unevenness of the virtual ground surface and tendency of its change with feed angle nearly coincide with the surface roughness in the experiment of helical scan grinding. It is found that this simulation method is effective for the prediction of a surface ground by helical scan grinding.
