Grinding of Ceramics

14.1 INTRODUCTION This chapter discusses factors affecting the grinding of the new generation of hard engineering ceramics. Particular attention is drawn to effects on predressing time and surface quality. Electrolytic in-Process Dressing (ELID) grinding is introduced as an exciting new process used for machining a range of very hard materials and, in particular, for machining […]

Hydrostatic Spindle Bearings for Large Wheels

For applications demanding the greatest stiffness, damping, and power handling requirements with minimal runout, many machine tool builders choose hydrostatic bearings. A hybrid hydrostatic bearing can provide greater load support than many hydrodynamic bearings of the same diameter and can withstand crashes better than other bearing types; a significant issue when using steel — cored […]
