centerless grinding consists of two wheels; the grinding wheel and a regulating wheel. The workparts, which may be many individual short pieces or long rods (e.g.,3-4m long), are supported by a rest blade and fed through between the two wheels. The grinding wheel does the cutting, rotating at surface speeds of 1200-1800 m/min (4000-6000 ft/min).

In this work, the nano-grinding process of single crystal silicon was studied by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, the damage mechanism of single crystal silicon were analyzed in details under different grinding speeds. The results show that the maximum height of the grinding chip does not always increase with the increase of the grinding speed.

Most cylindrical grinding machines offer a rather wide range of work rotation speeds, table traverse speeds, feed rates, and, sometimes, different wheel speeds as well. The proper selection of these variables, in combination with the choice of the grinding wheel, has a great bearing on the results and the economy of the grinding operation.

high speed grinding of metals have shown beyond doubt that much higher grinding ratios are achievable. At higher speeds, the normal force between the wheel and surface decreases, thus diminishing the probability of fracture of grains. Research in high speed grinding has shown that grinding ration as high as 4000 are achievable.

To achieve the quality and productivity requirements for most precision grinding operations, it is necessary that the grinding wheel is trued and dressed prior to grinding and periodically during the grinding operation. The truing process is initially performed to correct for any wheel runout, create the required profile on the wheel and condition the grinding wheel face.

tion of profile grinding processes, an empirical process model was developed to allow applica-tion of the results from the analogy process to profile grinding. In the analogy process, a large number of trials with profile angles varying from ϕ = 2° to ϕ = 90°, and a stock varying from ∆s = 0.05 mm to ∆s = 0.4 mm, were conducted.

At high (20,000 to 35,000 sfm) and very high speeds (45,000 to 66,000 sfm, close to the speed of sound) safety becomes a major issue. The machine design is critical. Normally insignificant areas become major factors. At high speeds the grinding debris leaving the grinding wheel can quickly erode the machine guarding and enclosure.
