. Aluminum Hubs Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels

Aircraft grade aluminum alloys are used as hub materials for some high-speed vitrified CBN. The obvious attraction is the lower density relative to steel. Various grades are available with tensile strengths of 120 to 140 kpsi. However, they have higher thermal expansion and appear to give more size and stability problems. 4.6.8 Junker Bayonet Style Read more

Crush Ratio Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels

Crush ratio can have a profound effect on the dressing action. Ishikawa and Kumar [1991] reported a study on dressing of vitrified bonded wheels containing coarse grade 80# GE 1 abrasive. They distinguished between three forms of grit fracture: “micro,” “medium,” and “macro” as illustrated in the micrographs in Figure 7.21. It was determined that Read more

SURFACE FORMATION IN GRINDING OF BRITTLE-HARD MATERIALS Handbook of Machining with Grinding Wheels

3.7.1 Indentation Tests Fundamental mechanisms of crack formation and spreading in the case of brittle-hard materials were carried out by Lawn and Wilshaw [1975]. The stressing of a ceramic surface with a cutting edge causes hydrostatic compression stress around a core area in the subsurface of the workpiece. This leads to a plastic deformation of Read more
