What is Industrial Grinding?

Grinding is the process of removing material from a workpiece using abrasive grains held together with a bond. Abrasive grains are hard and sharp. They function like individual cutting tools, removing thousands of tiny material chips. In advanced manufacturing applications, abrasive grains are bonded into wheels, rotated at high speeds, and applied to the workpiece.

Most grinding operations fall into one of two categories: surface grinding and cylindrical grinding. Surface grinding removes small amounts of materials to produce precision surfaces on machined parts. Surface grinding can also machine a workpiece to a precise size. Cylindrical grinding produces a high-quality finish or close tolerances on a rotating, cylindrical workpiece.

What are Grinding Wheels?

Grinding wheels are described by referring to certain parts. It is necessary to know the different parts of a grinding wheel to communicate clearly in the shop. The periphery is the part of the wheel that is farthest from the center. Each wheel has two sides. On a straight wheel, the sides are the planes on either side of the periphery. The face is the part of the wheel that comes into contact with the workpiece.
