The CNC (computer numerical control) cylindrical grinding machine has two main functions: to grind and hone the shoulder end face of a workpiece. The working surface of the grinding wheel is inclined at an angle around the vertical axis and is trimmed into two different grinding faces: one parallel to the workpiece axis and the other perpendicular. It can simultaneously grind the shoulder end face and outer circle of a workpiece. The latter option is mostly used for mass production.
CNC (computer numerical control) cylindrical grinding machines
The abrasive wear and tear that occurs to grinding wheels during machining is known as chatter. Dressing fixtures are used to recondition a grinding wheel to maintain its geometry and cutting capability. Dressing tools are made of harder materials than the grinding wheel itself, and they remove material from the grinding wheel to restore its geometry and cut quality. Some machines are equipped with stationary dressing tools while others have rotary dressing tools. The dressing operations interrupt the grinding process and occur during non-productive time.
CNC machines receive instructions through a computer. The programmers or operators of CNC machines load this computer-generated code into the machine. They then use the computer to perform a variety of measurements and calculations, resulting in high-quality machining. CNC machines have an unprecedented level of precision. In addition to improving production efficiency, they improve productivity and quality. Several improvements in the technology have been made in recent years, and many new models are in the pipeline.
Cylindrical end face grinding machines are used to grind the end faces of cylindrical parts. Their structure is made of heavy cast iron and is stress relieved and tempered. A large massive base is rib-reinforced in a dynamic principle, which ensures exceptional stability. The X-axis and Z-axis movements are controlled by a servomotor with a minimum setting unit of 0.001 mm. The powerful functionality of a cylindrical grinder allows it to grind multiple faces at the same time.
A cylindrical roller end face grinding machine is an ideal tool for machining small bearing rollers. This machine has an innovative design that eliminates many common problems associated with cylindrical roller grinding, such as jerk value, parallel error, and inefficiency. It is also very convenient to use when grinding small bearing rollers and other parts. This machine features a plate-like assembly that keeps flat on the surface. The plate-like assembly is overturned upward after the grinding process, and its lower surface contacts the grinding machine's mill.
