Definition

For grinding processes the actuated variables (e.g., cutting speed, feed velocity) and the system variables (e.g., grinding tool properties) have to be distinguished from the process parameters. The process parameters allow a good correlation to the process behavior. Examples for these process parameters are the geometric contact length between tool and workpiece or the equivalent chip thickness. In the following, these process parameters are explained.

Theory and Application

Introduction

The grinding process is a geometrical undefined cutting process due to the undefined number and geometry of cutting edges interacting with the workpiece. The load on the workpiece as well as the load on the grinding wheel is a result of the programmed actuated variables, the cutting tool properties, and the workpiece properties. Due to the complex interrelationships during grinding process,...
