Surface Grinder

Grinding procedures in the metal processing industry play an important role in the production line. For the field of metal grinding, cylindrical grinding and roller grinding are different from the subject of this article. The surface grinding head is lowered to the workpiece and moves back and forth under the grinding wheel on the worktable. The table of surface grinding machine usually has a controllable permanent magnet (used as a magnetic chuck) for magnetic materials, but can have a vacuum chuck or other fixing device.
 
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. Rotary surface grinders are commonly referred to as "Blanhard" type grinders, with a grinding head that rotates the grinding wheel on an axis perpendicular to the end face of the grinding head, while the worktable rotates the workpiece in the opposite direction below.

CNC Based Surface Grinding

As mentioned earlier, rotary surface grinding machine can remove a lot of material and grinds on a plane with obvious spiral grinding marks. It can also be used to manufacture and sharpen metal stamping dies, flat scissors, fixed seats or any flat and parallel surfaces. The surface grinder can be operated manually or has a CNC control system. Program cutting is not limited to turning, milling, drilling, but also grinding. Therefore, the CNC surface grinding machine is equipped with a humanized operation panel, which can accurately display the grinding action.

In addition, the friendly human-machine interface not only ensures accurate operation, but also provides great convenience for users in many different manufacturing sites. With modern programming technology, today's surface grinding machines users only need to call the corresponding cutting program from the machine's memory, and the machine will process with appropriate movements. In Taiwan, PROMA Machinery Company, GRINDIX Industrial Company, PRAISE Machinery Company, WISE Machinery Company and many other cutting-edge roller mill suppliers that provide comprehensive roller grinding solutions for users worldwide. Experienced industry insiders know more about the application and technical issues that determine the final accuracy and quality than their customers.

Therefore, in general, in all grinding processes such as cylindrical grinding, internal grinding, centerless grinding, surface grinding is one of the most common methods in the industry that has existed since the longest history and has continued to this day. CNC grinding is a finishing process. It uses a rotating grinding wheel to smooth the surface of metal or non-metallic materials, so as to provide a fine physical state driven by programmed grinding by removing layers and impurities on the surface of the workpiece under the control of a computer numerical control mechanism. So far, the programmed abrasive cutting path is recognized as the most stable grinding process in all other channels, such as manual and NC alternative methods for yield and quality. This is why CNC surface grinder model is now the most popular on the market.


Blueprint Engineering of Surface Grinding

In this process, according to the functional purpose planned and programmed by the engineer, the grinding process will surely obtain the required surface. Regarding the mechanical composition, the mechanical structure of the surface grinding machines is composed of grinding wheel, workpiece holding device and reciprocating worktable. During processing, the fixture will hold the material in place when processing the material. The clamping mechanism can be accomplished in two ways: one is to fix the ferromagnetic parts in place by magnetic chucks, and for non-ferromagnetic and non-metal parts, the clamping method is fixed in place by vacuum or mechanical.

Therefore, the clamping mechanism is essential for the entire grinding process. Because only the rigid positioning and clamping device, that can be used to complete the work at an ideal speed. Some other key factors that affect surface grinding are the material of the grinding wheel and the material of the workpiece. Generally, workpiece materials include aluminum, brass, steel, cast iron, and mild steel. Some of them are more stable and will not attach to the grinding wheel during processing, while others have different physical properties that will cause corrosion and are therefore not suitable for further applications. On the other hand, as far as the shape of the grinding wheel is concerned, the shape is not limited to a specific shape, but may be of various shapes. On-site operators can trim wheels for special purposes and purposes.


Finishing

Surface grinding machines are abrasive cutting machine tools used by manufacturers. In order to provide precise grinding surfaces in the production line, the purpose can be a specific size of scale or for surface finishing. The typical accuracy of a surface grinder depends on the type and application, but on most surface grinders it should be possible to achieve a certain accuracy value, so that the ultimate goal is that the mass production model can be achieved.
