Grinding Nonferrous Materials

The class "Grinding Nonferrous Materials" provides an in-depth overview of the considerations for grinding nonferrous workpiece materials. Nonferrous materials vary widely in their composition and properties, and thus vary in the methods used to grind them. This class discusses the properties of nonferrous metals, including aluminum, nickel, and titanium, as well as nonmetals such as carbide, ceramics, and composites. Properties of workpiece materials affect decisions such as abrasive wheel material and grinding variables. Nonferrous materials pose unique challenges in grinding. It is crucial for operators to be familiar with the properties of the materials themselves and how those properties affect a grinding operation. This class will provide operators with the knowledge necessary to grind nonferrous workpiece materials successfully, and what potential problems to anticipate and check for within the grinding operation.
