The CNC Cylindrical Grinding machine is primarily used to form the outer surface of a round workpiece, typically those used in metal working and mechanics. It can also work with various shapes, although the items being worked on need to have a center axis, including pins, rods, cogs, and more. CNC machines generally use a programming language to set the capabilities and parameters of these machines. The programming language can be set at the factory for specific purposes, or purchased for general programming needs. There are many types of CNC Cylindrical machines available to meet your needs for any project.
One of the most common uses of CNC Cylindrical grinding machinery is that it is used in the CNC grinders of today. CNC Cylindrical grinders are used for things such as bronze casting, die making, sheet metal shaping, tooling, drilling, polishing, etc. These CNC machines offer a very accurate method of performing the task at hand. The two major components that make up this type of machine are the CNC Cylindrical wheel and a computer-controlled motor.
The CNC Cylindrical wheel spindle is the actual device used for grinding. The CNC Cylindrical wheel spindle consists of two major parts. The first part is the spindle itself, which has a seat unit. The second part is the grinding gear. The grinding gear is actually what moves the CNC Cylindrical wheel during the grinding operation.
In order to move the CNC Cylindrical wheel in the CNC Cylindrical grinding wheel spindle, the operator places a rotary tool on the work piece and rotates the work piece with the appropriate gear ratio. The work piece rotates at a certain angle and the work piece grinds the material being ground. The speed at which the grinding wheel rotates and the degree of grind is determined by the operator. This is a form of tumbling.
There are many advantages to using this type of CNC grinding operation. This type of operation is ideal for the tumbling process of grinding metallic items that cannot be made by other types of machines. In addition, the work piece and the wheel are both held at exactly the same angle, which allows for excellent accuracy in the grinding process. Because the work piece is always held at this exact angle to the work piece does not have to be moved during the grinding operation which allows for a higher degree of control in the CNC Cylindrical wheel operation.
The CNC Cylindrical grinder is a CNC machine and as such operates with some degree of programmability. This makes it possible to experiment with the grinding wheel to obtain the best results. Although, there are some limitations in the programmability of the CNC Cylindrical grinding wheel, but these are fairly minor compared to what CNC grinding machines can accomplish. The major limitations of this grinding machine are that it can only grind with one revolution of the grinding wheel per minute, the range of speeds that it can achieve is limited and the distance between the grinding centers is slightly larger than traditional CNC Cylindrical grinders. These are major limitations but relative to other types of CNC machines, the CNC Cylindrical grinding wheel can perform as good as, or better than any other machine in its class.
