An end face cylindrical grinding machine is a machine for grinding the shoulder end face of workpieces. The workpiece is held in a spindle and is inclined at an angle around the vertical axis. The surface of the wheel is trimmed into two grinding faces, one parallel to the axis of the workpiece, the other perpendicular to the axis. The machine can grind the shoulder end face and the outer circle of a workpiece at the same time, which is especially convenient for mass production.
The CNC end face cylindrical grinding machine has high processing precision, reliable performance, and easy operation. It is suitable for mass productions in the automotive, motorcycle, air compressor, bearing, and aerospace industries. It can also be customized to meet specific customer needs. In addition, it is very versatile and can handle large and small-scale precision productions.
The CNC machine features a swiveling table for easy taper adjustment. It also features a dial gauge for accurate adjustment. It also has NC simultaneous 2-axis control that can automatically adjust the form dressing speed. The speed of the dressing process can be regulated to match the roughness of the surface of each section.
Cylindrical grinding machines are often used to finish conical or shoulder parts. These machines have an internal grinding wheel with built-in wheel dresser and can perform taper, plane, and plunge type internal grinding of grooves and faces. During rough grinding, the depth of the cut can range from 30 to 80 microns. The finish cut, on the other hand, is generally only ten to twenty microns.
Increasing the feed rate is another way to improve the surface finish. This can be accomplished by modifying the CNC program. However, it is important to choose a wheel rated for the process. The maximum operating speed of the wheel is usually stated on the side of the wheel. It is also a good idea to set the in-feed rate so that the grinding wheel can maintain a consistent depth per revolution.
Internal cylindrical grinders are available in manual, semi-automatic, and fully-automatic versions. A manual or semi-automatic type may have a built-in wheel dresser. The machine may also have an internal grinding attachment for more complex work pieces. The two types of internal cylindrical grinders may have a rotary work-table and a vertical wheel-head.
An end face cylindrical grinding machine is a highly productive machine for cutting end faces of cylindrical components. It has excellent precision, minimal noise, and easy automation. It is ideal for high-volume production.
