It is possible to produce by the ESC method with melting together, using consecutive melting of the cheeks with simultaneous melting to them of the manufactured beforehand crankpins, not just separate cranks but entirely the whole crankshaft, whereby main journals and crankpins are installed into respective holes in walls of the water-cooled mould designed for ESC of the cheeks (Figure 2, a).
So, in cranks of crankshafts from 20G steel of powerful ship diesels quality of the ESC metal of the cheeks and crankpins in the melting together zone after annealing and subsequent normalization with tempering significantly exceeds that of the metal of cranks, manufactured by conventional casting, not just in regard to strength, ductility, and toughness [7], but also in regard to fatigue strength [22], whereby properties of the metal in the melting together zone don't differ at all from those of the electroslag cast metal of the cheeks, which was not subjected to overheating.
Mass of electroslag casting billet of the crank is about 5 t, and diameter of the crankpin is about 0.
They have incorporated the latest generation of highly flexible, accurate, and productive CNC orbital crankpin grinders with CBN abrasives, whereas the use of older style indexing-type crankpin grinders with conventional grinding wheels is still very prevalent in the global diesel engine industry.
Crankpin grinding using an indexing-type cylindrical grinder involves rotating the crankshaft in a fixture in which the shaft's main bearings are offset by one-half the distance of the stroke while the crankpin sidewalls, radii, and diameter are plunge-ground using a wheel dressed to full width.
For years, most diesel engine crankshaft manufacturers have found crankshaft lines made up of traditional style indexing-type crankpin grinders with conventional grinding wheels to be a cost-effective solution to their manufacturing requirements.
These transfer lines provide a significant productivity increase over individual machines grinding all crankpins in one loading.
Rejected parts are unloaded through a chute, and good parts transported to the crankpin grinding operation via elevator.
To calculate the frictional forces acting on surfaces between the vane and piston, between the piston and crankpin, and of main bearing, Coulomb's friction law is applied.
