What is Cylindrical Grinding?

Cylindrical grinding is a machining process used to finish the surfaces of cylindrical parts or features. This process refines the surface of cylindrical workpieces and produces precise geometrical shapes. It involves rotating the workpiece on its axis between centers or using a chuck to hold and rotate it, while a grinding wheel moves back and forth along the surface of the rotating cylinder.

Process Overview

Cylindrical grinding can be divided into two main types:

  1. External Cylindrical Grinding: This is used for cylindrical exteriors and rotational surfaces. The workpiece is mounted between centers or by using a chuck, and the grinding wheel grinds the outer surface.
  2. Internal Cylindrical Grinding: This process is used for finishing the inner surface of cylindrical holes or cavities. An internal grinder with a spindle-mounted grinding wheel is used, allowing for precision work within hollow parts.

Equipment and Techniques

  •  Cylindrical grinding is typically carried out on a cylindrical grinder, which includes a rotating grinding wheel moving against the rotating workpiece. The machine can also be equipped with multiple grinding wheels for different purposes (roughing, finishing).
  • Work Holding: The precision of the cylindrical grinding process often relies on the stability provided by the work-holding method. Centers, chucks, and collets are commonly used to hold the workpiece securely.
  • Coolants: Due to the high level of heat generation in the grinding process, coolants are crucial. They reduce the heat, minimize wear on the grinding wheel, and help achieve a better surface finish by washing away metal particles.
