Centreless Abrasives - Atto Abrasives
The centreless process is ideally suited to applications requiring high production rates of cylindrical components, including the manufacture of taper roller bearings, chrome bar, shafts, tubing, etc. Adaptations of the centreless process have evolved to include, thru- feed, in-feed and end-feed centreless grinding & polishing.Centerless Grinding: Not Magic! : Modern Machine Shop,Infeed centerless grinding is analogous to plunge grinding on a center-type machine. The work is placed on the blade, and the regulating wheel moves into a programmed feed to begin the grind.Thrufeed Centerless OD Grinding: Parameters and,,In thrufeed centerless OD grinding the workpiece passes between two wheels, a grinding wheel and a regulating wheel (as illustrated in the diagram, right). Both wheels rotate in the same direction, but at much different speeds. The purpose of the grinding wheel is to remove material from the workpiece and improve part OD quality.
