Grinding Wheel Geometry

“Grinding Wheel Geometry” provides an overview of common grinding wheel geometries according to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards, which provides a common language for grinding wheels, including letter designations for each part of the wheel, as well as guidelines for wheel design and usage. Most grinding wheels are one of eight basic types that are variations of straight and cup wheels. The variations come from different wheel features, such as reliefs and recesses, which make them suitable for grinding different part shapes. Selecting and using the best grinding wheel for an operation requires an understanding of wheel geometry. After taking this class, users should be able to describe common wheel geometries and the applications appropriate for each.
