Mini surface grinding machine refers to a grinding machine with relatively mini size, and which is designed for surface grinding. Regarding the structural design of mini surface grinding machine, they are vertically arranged machines and play an important role in the metalworking industry. In the field of grinding machines, roller grinding and external grinding are very different from surface grinding. The grinding head moves down to the workpiece, and the workpiece can move back and forth. Tables are usually equipped with controllable magnetic materials or vacuum suction cups. The most common surface grinder has a grinding wheel that rotates along a horizontal axis and is ground by the periphery of the grinding wheel. The mini surface grinder machine with vertical tool wheel can remove a lot of material and grind on a flat surface with obvious spiral grinding marks. Mini surface grinding machine can also be used to manufacture and sharpen metal stamping dies, flat shear blades, fixture bases or any flat surface. This surface grinder with mini size can be manually or CNC controlled operated.
For the installed vertical design of the mini surface grinding machine, these can help the workpiece to be clamped much more rigid onto the working table due to the help of the gravitational pull, which is by nature the best uses of the natural force. On the other side, once the clamping system is of horizontal design, the effect is different and the clamping systems, such as the claws, cylinders, chucks, or other magnetic facilities are encountering another kind of challenges. CNC cutting must not only be capable of turning, milling, drilling, but also grinding. Therefore, the operating system of CNC mini surface grinding machine is often equipped with humanized operation panels, which can accurately display various processing tasks. The friendly interface not only ensures precise operation, but also makes the process more efficient. With the latest programming technology, the operator of mini surface grinding machine only needs to call the set cutting program from the system storage, and the machine will automatically process the abrasive cutting procedure.
Moreover, in all grinding technologies, surface grinding is one of the most common processing methods in the industry, and its concept can be extended to various grinding methods.
Grinding of mini surface grinding machine is a finishing process that uses rotating grinding wheels to smooth the surface of metallic or non-metallic materials. In detail, under CNC control, the grinding wheel of mini surface grinder machine is controlled to remove impurities and burrs on the surface of the workpiece to achieve a fine and smooth state of surface roughness quality.
Regarding the design and programming of the machine engineer in advance, the grinding task can achieve the expected results. In simple terms, a mini surface grinder machine is composed of a grinding wheel, a workpiece fixture, and a reciprocating table. During the processing, the fixture will fix the workpiece in the proper position. There are two clamping methods for mini surface grinding machine according to their fixture design. One is a ferromagnetic piece, which uses an electromagnetic chuck to fix the workpiece in place, and the other is a vacuum or mechanical method.
The clamping mechanism of mini surface grinding machine is essential for the entire machining process. A solid and precise workpiece positioning can accurately complete all processing tasks and obtain the ideal resolution. The factors to be considered in surface grinding also include the material of the grinding wheel and the material of the workpiece. Surface grinding machine has mini size can be used to process surface of work piece with various materials. Common workpiece materials to be seen in mini surface grinding machine process include aluminum, brass, steel, cast iron, and mild steel. Some of them are more stable and will not corrode and adhere to the grinding wheel during processing, while others may corrode and subsequently adhere to the surface of the grinding wheel during processing.
Due to its natural characteristics, this material is not suitable for multi-step processing. On the other hand, the grinding wheel may have various shapes. Mini surface grinding machine operators can dress wheels according to specific grinding requirements. It is worth noting that in the surface grinding process, the shape of the grinding wheel will affect the reverse shape of the workpiece, so the operator must always pay attention to the change in the shape of the workpiece in order to repair the workpiece immediately. The grinding wheel maintains the precision level of grinding quality.
Mini surface grinding machine, internal grinding machine, and external grinding machine are the three main grinding tools that people use in industry. The goal is to achieve the intended surface quality. Sometimes roll grinding and centerless grinding methods can also be mentioned, but relatively few are mentioned. Moreover, mini surface grinding machine today is usually controlled by computer program and can be modified by machine operators to achieve higher precision.
