Abstract

Energy consumption and dissipation are discussed, leading into a thermal model for grinding. The analysis developed over many years applies to shallow-cut conventional grinding processes and also to deep grinding processes. Energy analysis provides insights into the grinding process and suggests avenues for process improvements. The thermal model provides a good estimation of contact temperatures as well as temperatures on the finish surface. Case studies are presented to demonstrate how operational efficiency, component quality and removal rates are affected by process conditions. Examples are included for High Efficiency Deep Grinding (HEDG). HEDG is defined as deep grinding at high workspeeds and very high removal rates. Tawakoli [20], Klocke [21]. The contact between the workpiece and wheel is re
