We're one of the biggest promoters of creep-feed grinding because it is faster, no question about it, simply by virtue of the amount of arc embedded in the workpiece and doing the cutting.
Dr Stuart Salmon studied the creep-feed grinding process in the early '70s as a young aprentice at Rolls-Royce, Derby, England, and then at the University of Bristol under the sponsorship of Rolls and the British Science Research Council.
The stock removal capability of creep-feed grinding is phenomenal, and the resulting surface is superior to that obtained with any other grinding process.
Continuous-dress capability: Continuous-dress creep-feed grinding (CDCF) is an additional need for US industry, beyond CNC creepfeed and CNC surface grinding.
This grinder is capable of cylindrical contouring, grinding multiple diameters with an in-process gage, nonround grinding of cam lobes, and cylindrical creep-feed grinding for a variety of sheet-metal punch shapes.
Also, a large servo-driven ballscrew is generally incorporated because rugged, positive, and precise table movement is the key factor in accurate creep-feed grinding.
Examples of Abrasive-Form's creep-feed grinding expertise abound, such as the tiny terminal clip for a radar computer board shown on the cover.
So what can you do if you have applications that can benefit from creep-feed grinding but don't want to bear the expense of a full-blown machine?
Like Moellering, Eric Reutimann is another advocate of the technology behind creep-feed grinding.
X-axis rapid traverse is 1,000 mm/min to 24,000 mm/min for reciprocal grinding and 5 mm/min to 1,000 mm/min for creep-feed grinding.
Makino has developed what it calls "Viper" grinding, which includes patents on the structure of the grinding wheel, precisely directing coolant flow through nozzle designs, and other features to perform what is akin to creep-feed grinding.
In creep-feed grinding, developed in the late 1950's, the wheel depth of cut is as much as 0.
