Adaptive Control in Grinding

  • Robert S. Hahn
Part of the Chapman and Hall Advanced Industrial Technology Series book series (AITS)


One other driving force behind the need for adaptive control in grinding that must be added to Dr. Hahn’s position is the industrial move toward higher levels of automation through the use of increasingly sophisticated computer techniques. Grinding, milling, turning, inspection, and logistic systems are being integrated with a drive toward greater throughput. World competition is demanding faster and faster process schedules. High-speed machining techniques are, therefore, being seen more frequently as a requirement in machine specifications. As the speed of process increases, the manual capability to control decreases and the need for adaptive control increases. At some point, the ability to adaptively control becomes one of the limitations to the ability of the manufacturing industry to automate.
