Vitrified bonds are composed of glasses that are formed when clays, ground glass frits, mineral fluxes such as feldspars, and chemical fluxes such as borax, melt when the grinding wheel is fired at high temperatures.
Tests have shown that the grinding wheels achieve significantly increased output when compared with conventional products, and abrasives such as Cubitron II Depressed Center Grinding Wheels from 3M can have a major positive impact on the essential metalwork required for oil and gas applications.
There are many grinding wheels to choose from on the market and finding the right one for your needs can seem like searching for a needle in a haystack.
For finish grinding of internal ring gears, external stepped gears and gears with shafts after heat processing, conventionally a method for grinding tooth grooves one by one using a small-diameter disk-shaped grinding wheel has mainly been used to prevent interference - a procedure that erodes mass production merits and impedes cost reduction efforts.
Three process parameters are chosen to study their effects and interactions: the rotational speed of the grinding wheel, the rotational speed of the wafer and the federate of grinding wheel towards the wafer.
