Important steps in cylindrical grinding

Important steps in cylindrical grinding Points : Important steps in cylindrical grinding
  1. Check the work for size to make sure grinding stock has been allowed, and the same time note any tapering of the work.
  2. Inspect the work centers to see that they are clean and true. Select machine centers of suitable diameters to fill the work's centers properly. The footstock center should be cut away enough to permit the grinding wheel to clear the end of the work; a center of this type is known as a one-half-full, or a three quarter full, centre.
  3. Attach the grinding dog on the end of the job, making sure that the dog does not damage such part of the work as threads and keyways; then lubricate the machine centers.
  4. Set the table traverse for the length of the work, allowing for overrun of the end and the space occupied by the grinder dog.
  5. If necessary, mount the steady rests and adjust the shoes to the work.
  6. Dress the grinding wheel, passing the diamond across the wheel-face quickly to make the wheel fast cutting. Set the work speed at the correct surface speed in feet per minute. Plunge-cut grinding
  7. Feed the wheel to the Work by hand and take a light cut, noting, that the wheel starts to cut approximately at the high point of the work.
  8. Check the work for size and taper and-make any table adjustments necessary to ensure that the work will be straight.
  9. Rough grind the job to the rough size. If several pieces are to be done, set the S top on the ratchet and proceeds as before, roughing the balance of the pieces.
  10. After the pieces have been roughed out, place the dog on the rough-ground end of the work and grind the unfinished end. If this end is shorter than the width of the wheel face, it may be plunge-cut ground. Make sure that the grinding, wheel is kept sharp and clean by frequent dressing.
  11. To finish-grind, set the machine for fast work speed and slow traverse and dress the wheel by passing the diamond slowly across the wheel face.
  12. Insert the piece to be finish-ground and take alight trial cut. Check it for size and make any corrections necessary for removal of taper" if steady rests are used, keep them adjusts to the work.
  13. After the first piece has been ground to finished size, reset the stop on the feed ratchet so that the in feed will produce the required size and. then set the shoes ' on the steady rests for the finished diameter.
  14. Finish-grind the remaining pieces. This outline pertains to grinding a plain cylinder. If the work to be ground has shoulders; keyways, or slots, some deviations from the outline must be made, If the work to be ground has a keyway, open at each end, or spines, and steady rests are to be used, the slot must be filled with key stock or other suitable material to prevent the steady-rest shoes from catching on the work.
