Provided by: ToolingU

“Setup for the Centerless Grinder” explains how to set up a centerless grinder for typical outer diameter (OD) operations including setup for the work rest blade and regulating wheel angle of inclination, as well as the methods for selecting and mounting a grinding wheel. The class also explains the proper truing and dressing procedure for both the grinding and regulating wheel. Centerless grinding results in close tolerances but only if the machine is properly set up for the operation. After taking this class, users will be able to describe the steps required to set up a centerless grinder for routine OD grinding of a cylindrical part.
