EFFECTS OF GRINDING WHEEL WEAR ON THE THERMO-MECHANICAL LOADS IN THE GRINDING PROCESS

Abstract

A large amount of the energy produced during grinding is converted into heat. Since not all of the heat can be dissipated by the cooling lubricant, thermally induced displacements in machine components occur, which has a negative influence on the component quality. The generation and distribution of heat is influenced by the change of the grinding wheel topography due to wear.Therefore, the wear mechanisms of grains were identified and quantified and their effect on heat generation was investigated. For this purpose, creep feed grinding investigations on bearing steel were conducted with electroplated CBN grinding wheels with different grain specifications.
