Grinding monitoring comprises all technologies that enable to observe and analyze the grinding process, the energy conversion, the grinding tool, and the finished workpiece properties.
Theory and Application
The process “high-performance grinding,” from which high material removal rates, best surface quality and integrity, and high geometrical accuracy are required, is a highly sensitive process subject to numerous influences. Some of those influences today can hardly be predicted and also can hardly be directly controlled by input parameters to the grinding machine system. Especially the wear of the grinding tool, consisting of macro wear and micro wear, a truly complicated process, which is still today not fully understood, introduces unpredictable transient changes to the grinding wheel and thus into the process. Therefore, observation of the process becomes necessary. But observation alone is insofar not sufficient as only by...
