Basics of the Cylindrical Grinder

"Basics of the Cylindrical Grinder" provides a comprehensive introduction to different types and components of cylindrical grinding machines and methods such as plunge grinding and traverse grinding. The main types of cylindrical grinders are plain, universal, automated, and limited-purpose. Grinders may also be categorized by their method of workholding and method of control. Grinding wheels, maintenance, coolant, and grinding variables vary based on the operation. Cylindrical grinding is a common operation performed to finish parts and bring them to tolerance. A cylindrical grinder operator must be familiar with the machine itself, as well as how to select and utilize wheels, workholding, and coolant, in order for the grinding operation to be successful. This foundational knowledge is necessary to reduce scrap, increase quality and production rates, and lower costs.
