Cylindrical Grinding Wheel

Cylindrical Grinding Wheel

Get long wheel life and lower per-part grinding costs with our cylindrical grinder wheel. Hindustan Abrasive’s grinding wheels are used for a variety of operations ( size generation, fine surface finishing, faster stock removal etc.)

Cylindrical grinding wheels are used to shape the object which may or may not be cylindrical in shape having an axis of rotation. And of course cylindrical grinding stone rotates by motorized attachment to overcome the moment of inertia and rotate it at the desired speed. The work-piece may be conical as special farm cylindrical wheels are used for grinding works which are held between center & chucks.

From the automotive industry to a military application, high precision grinding largely depends on cylindrical grinding. Any job cylindrical in shape, which needs to be sized or grinded by micron, has to be machined on a cylindrical grinder machine to grind it –

On OD ( Outer Diameter)

Here sizing is required on the outer diameter of job and hence grinding is done on O.D. of the job.

On ID ( Inner Diameter)

Here sizing is required on the internal diameter of the job and hence grinding is done on the I.D. of the job.

Cylindrical Grinding Wheel Selection Process

Cylindrical grinding wheel selection has to be done from many grinding wheel types. A variety of wheels are available to suit the requirement of different industries.

  1. Plain wheel – Here the wheel used is plain on both the surfaces.
  2. ROS – Here wheel has recess on one side to fit on the flange.
  3. RBS – Here wheel has recess on both sides.

Usually, the bore or the inner diameter of the cylindrical grinding wheels is 127 mm or more and thickness of the wheel varies from 6 mm to 90 mm.

We do have a wide range of cylindrical wheels and selection has to be made on basis of Grinding wheel codes. Cylindrical wheels are also used on the component as surface grinding wheel for stainless steel material including

  1. 304
  2. 310
  3. 410
  4. 420

These wheels are used to get the fastest production with line surface finish. These wheels are used in the various application including grinding crankshaft, transmission shaft, eye bolts, pins valves, plunger etc.

We use best pre-fired aluminum oxide grain for producing cylindrical wheels, giving light blue colored wheels, rather than gray conventional wheels. Type 6 and Type 11 are used as tool room grinding wheel for grinding HSS and stainless steel material.

The bonds which have been specially developed for precision grinding wheels are used for their production, which runs cool enough to avoid cooling/cutting oils used by the consumer. Apart from it, these bonds do not overheat the job and hence gives the desired finish and cutting simultaneously. Moreover, the per-component cost is much lower than that of the other precision grinding wheels available in the market.

A bigger form of cylindrical Grinding Wheels are used as Roll Grinding Wheels

We have wide range of Cylindrical Grinding Wheels are used for various grinding operations in different industries.

Cylindrical Grinding & Wheel related FAQs

1. What is cylindrical grinding?

Cylindrical grinding may cover all outside diameter grinding, even though the complete work piece is not a cylinder. The work piece may be pyramidal in shape or consist of a specific form, ground with a wheel outfitted into a specific shape. Wheels in this section are used for grinding works which are kept between centers and chucks.

2.What are the uses of cylindrical grinding?

Requirements in cylindrical grinding differ from fast stock replacement, where the rough finish is provided, to ultra-smooth finishing, which is described as a mirror finish. Wheels with a rough grit and coarse dressing are suitable for quick stock removal. In contrast, a wheel with a light grit and smooth dressing result in a smooth surface. Hard material needs softer wheels than soft substance in the same wheel dimension. For workpieces with small widths or sharp corners, finer grit is more prominent than a harder grade. Work pieces with wide arms require more elastic and coarser wheels, especially when the work piece is hardened. The idea of the dressing and truing is to recover the original cutting geometry and to improve the flatness and fullness of the grinding wheel. This is done in many cases by diamond tables.

3.What material does grinding wheel consist of?

The grinding wheels can consist of aluminum oxide Al2O3, cubic boron nitride cBN or diamond. CBN and diamond grinding wheels are very strong and can be applied for high accuracy grinding of very hard parts. The endurance is very high. Diamond wheels have some restrictions for grinding steel because of the solubility of carbon in iron.

4.What are the types of cylindrical grinding?

From the automotive business to a martial application, high precision grinding mainly depends on cylindrical grinding. Any job cylindrical in form, which needs to be sized or crushed by micron, has to be ground on a cylindrical grinder machine to grind it – On OD – Here sizing is needed on the outer diameter of job and hence scraping is done on O.D. of the job. On ID – Here sizing is needed on the internal diameter of the job and hence scraping is done on the I.D. of the job.

5.How to do wheel selection for cylindrical grinding?

Grit sizes between 36 and 80 are perfect for roughing and finishing, while dimensions 80 to 600 are used for very high shine. The most generally used grit sizes are between 46 and 60. Finer-than-average texture sizes can be used for small diameter products and wheels, for hard fine-grained metals of moderate flexibility. It is also used for fixed metals where stock replacement is usually small in amount and where forms, fillets, and radii must be taken to close tolerances. Coarser-than-average grain measurements can be used for soft ductile metals and for big rates of stock removal.

5.What is bonding?

Bonding of the abrasive material can be vitrified, hard or resin. Vitrified bonding is used regularly. High stock removal rates can be obtained and the rigidity provides high precision grinding. This bonding is not susceptible to water, acid, oil and it is not heat sensitive either. Resin bonding is very soft and is used to produce very smooth surfaces. Metallic bonding is used for specific purposes, e.g. for electrical flow truing. Regulation and feed wheels utilize rubber bonding.

5.What is mesh size?

The texture size of the abrasive material of a Cylindrical grinding wheel is defined by the mesh size of the screen that is used for the variety of the material. The mesh size is, therefore, a standard of the roughness of the grinding wheel and manages the removal rate and the cover roughness of the workpiece after grinding.
