Abstract: In this paper, an experimental study was conducted to compare the sawing of granite with thin and normal blades. The power drawn by the spindle and horizontal and vertical forces were measured. The width of sawing slot on the granite was examined after sawing. For both blades, power and forces increase with the depth of cut. The width of sawing slots for the thin blade was about 75% of the normal blade. The width of sawing slots for either thin or normal blade sawing became narrower in larger depth of cut.

Abstract: An investigation is reported of the characteristics of specific energy in grinding of granite using diamond abrasives. The effects of many parameters, such as the types of diamond tools, the types of abrasives, the properties of granite, the conditions of lubrication, and the working conditions of diamond tools, were studied. The power consumed in grinding was measured in order to obtain the specific energy, which is defined as the energy expended per unit volume of material removal. It is found that the specific energy for grinding of granite was closely related to the removal mechanisms of granite, the failure modes of diamonds and the interactions of the swarf with the applied fluid and bond matrix.

Abstract: An experimental study was undertaken to investigate the grinding of granite at different grinding speeds over a wide range of material removal rates. A metal-bonded diamond blade was used as the grinding wheel with natural gray granite as the workpiece material. The tangential and normal force components were obtained through measuring the horizontal and vertical force components as well as the consumed power. The experiments were conducted with a constant wheel surface state to study the influence of grinding speed under different material removal rates. An additional test was also carried out to examine the grinding process while the wheel surface state progressively changed, in which case both forces and the morphologies of diamond grains were monitored at regular intervals. At a fixed material removal rate, both the tangential and normal forces reduced slightly with the grinding speed. But the specific energy increased greatly at higher grinding speeds especially at a shallower maximum grain depth of cut.

Abstract: The effects of cutting parameters on the transverse vibration of diamond circular saw blade were experimentally investigated. Transverse vibration was online measured by a novel measuring system developed by wireless sensor. Meanwhile, axial force on saw blade was measured by a dynamometer. By the experimental results under different cutting parameters, the time domain characteristics of transverse vibration of saw blade were analyzed, and the relationships between transverse vibration and cutting parameters were also obtained. Axial deformation is greatly influenced by the axial force acting on saw blade.

Abstract: Grinding forces, protrusion and wear of diamond grit have been studied in grinding granite with a single-layer brazed diamond wheel. The experiment results indicate that the primary wear progression of diamond grits in the whole grinding process follows the mode of whole, micro-fractured, macro-fractured and pull-out when grinding granite with the brazed diamond wheel. The proportions of the whole, fractured, pull-out, break flat and the mean height protrusion of grains are more closely related to grinding forces. The grinding forces decreased with the increasing proportions of whole and break flat grains, and the tangential and normal force components increased with the gradual wear of the brazed diamond wheel during a long-time grinding process.

Abstract: An investigation was undertaken to explore the specific energy and material removal mechanisms involved in the grinding of cemented carbide with vacuum brazing diamond wheels. A mathematical model, relating to the grinding parameters such as wheel velocity, workpiece feedrate and depth of cut, was proposed to predict specific grinding energy, and was verified by experimental data. This verification came as a result of surface grinding two typical cemented carbides (YG8 and YG30) with a vacuum brazing diamond wheel under various grinding conditions. The earlier model’s prediction shows a direct correlation with the experimental results. Good relationships between the consumed power per unit width with the plowed face areas generated by all cutting points per unit width were obtained. Microscopic examination of the ground surfaces and the grinding detritus by a digital and video microscope system also revealed that material removal occurred mainly by flow-type chip formation (plastic flow) while grinding YG8 and by blocky fracture particles formation (brittle fracture) while grinding YT30.

Abstract: An experimental setup was established to measure and study the vertical and horizontal force components acted on the saw-blade during the whole deep sawing process of a granite workpiece with finite length. The accumulated thickness of the grits engaging with the workpiece in the sawing zone was obtained by numeric method to simulate the vertical and horizontal cutting forces respectively. The results showed that the simulated data tallied well with the measured data.
