Surface grinder with vertical or horizontal structural design can both well meet the demands of specific types of grinding, and in the machining process, equipped with electromagnetic chuck as a conventional accessory, it is strongly recommended to use a vertical rotary surface grinder for precise grinding.
As we all know, compared to conventional surface grinders, rotary surface grinder with vertical alignment can provide high efficiency, which is because a large number of grinding wheels are in contact with the surface area of the workpiece. The extremely rugged construction of the object and the high grinding force enable large and fast cutting of large castings and workpiece plates. Compared with ordinary surface grinders, the productivity is higher. The surface grinding process is used to produce a smooth finished surface on a flat or other specific surface. As a result, it is well known that the conventional grinding process is to cover the spinning wheel with rough particles that cut chips of metallic or nonmetallic substance from a work piece, rendering a flat or smooth face quality.
The main benefit of rotary surface grinder with vertical structural design is its high cutting rates for both magnetic and non-magnetic work pieces. When a large amount of material needs to be removed quickly and efficiently, vertical rotary grinding is more effective than other methods due to the design's much higher horsepower. In fact, in metal grinding, roller grinding, cylindrical grinding, and internal grinding belong to a group of grinding work at a certain angle. Unlike cylindrical grinding and roll grinding, the head of the surface grinder is lowered to a workpiece that moves back and forth under the grinding wheel on the table, which usually has a controllable permanent magnet (used as an electromagnetic chuck) for use. There are magnetic materials, but can have vacuum chuck or other fixtures. The most common surface grinder has a grinding wheel that rotates along a horizontal axis, and the grinding wheel cuts around the circumference of the grinding wheel unit. For heavy duty abrasive cutting in the field of metal machining, column based heavy duty surface grinding is one of the most critical issues in the entire finishing process. After such complex operations as drilling, cutting and other rough machining, many rough workpiece will enter this surface processing step for further finishing under heavy duty premises.
Horizontal or vertical rotary surface grinder is the finishing step in the whole process. It uses a rotating grinding wheel to remove layers and impurities the surface of metal or non-metal workpieces smooth and fine. This kind of surface grinding is controlled by computer numerical control system, which is activated by a programming system. The heavy duty grinding machines normally built with column structure, and the abrasive cutting process will obtain the required surface to achieve the functional purpose of engineer planning and programming. This situation also occurs in a milling machine such as a double column milling center, and in terms of mechanical properties, the mechanical structure of a surface grinder is composed of a grinding wheel, a workpiece holding device, and a reciprocating table. In the processing process, in most cases, like other column based milling machines, the fixture will fix the material in place during processing materials.
In the heavy duty field, the horizontally designed column surface grinder is a multifunctional machine used to provide heavy duty precision grinding surfaces. The purpose may be specific sizes or for surface finishing, so the typical accuracy of surface grinders depends on the type and usage. It should be possible to achieve a certain accuracy value on most surface grinders. Because the grinding machine consists of a table that can travel both in the longitudinal direction and along the grinding wheel surface, the longitudinal feed is usually hydraulically driven, and the cross feed can also be hydraulically driven. However, any combination of manual, electric or hydraulic pressure can depend on the ultimate usage of the grinding machines should be clarified before purchase. The accuracy value must be set accurately before processing, but the final output will be unstable and difficult to control. Using the column structure, CNC system, advanced spindle and good grinding wheel, the grinding quality can be excellent and controllable.
