What is a Centerless Grinding Wheel?
A Centerless Grinding Wheel is used with centerless grinding machines. The work piece is fixed between two grinding wheels The wheels move relative to each other to determine how much material is removed from the workpiece, as well as how quickly it is removed. The ability to control the removal rate and how quickly its removes materials offers high precision grinding and control.
Types of Centerless Grinding
Centerless Grinding can be done in three ways. The first way that it can be done is “Through Feed”. During this process the workpiece enters one side and exits the other side. The second way centerless grinding can be achieved is by “End Feed”. This process requires the workpiece to be fed in one side where the piece comes to rest and the grinding takes place. Once the grinding process is finished, the piece is then fed in the opposite direction to exit. The third and final type of centerless grinding process is “In Feed”. In Feed is used when grinding work pieces with complex shapes. Unlike the other two types of centerless grinding techniques, during “In Feed” the workpiece is entered manually and does not enter / exit as it does in the others.
