Flat grinding

During circumferential grinding, chipping is mostly done by the grains at the circumference. Contact length is small, so that the chip chambers of the grinding wheel are scarcely fully pressed and easily clean also due to the centrifugal force and the pressure of the cooling lubricant. Diameter and breadth of the wheel are to be selected as large as possible, in order to involve into chipping as much grinding grains as possible. Ideally, the breadth of the wheel corresponds to the breadth of the workpiece. Crosswise feed is to amount to 1/2 up to 4/5 of the wheel’s breadth. Small cutting depth in connection with a large crosswise feed effect that all grains are involved into the circumference and the grinding work. This allows avoidance of strong edge wear and large local heating. Circumferential grinding is especially economic, if work is done with grinding wheels as large as possible and large crosswise feed.
