Abstract

Improved coolant distribution is attained at the grinding interface with a workpiece by forming a continuous helical groove in the grinding wheel surface. In the figures, helical groove 1 is formed in the surface of wheel 2 to insure that the entire surface of the workpiece 3 is contacted by the wheel. As coolant is supplied from pipe 4, it is carried across the interference area between the wheel and the workpiece by the groove to achieve improved distribution.

Low Load Grinding Wheel

Improved coolant distribution is attained at the grinding interface with a workpiece by forming a continuous helical groove in the grinding wheel surface. In the figures, helical groove 1 is formed in the surface of wheel 2 to insure that the entire surface of the workpiece 3 is contacted by the wheel. As coolant is supplied from pipe 4, it is carried across the interference area between the wheel and the workpiece by the groove to achieve improved distribution.

This technique overcomes the molecular air film on the grinding wheel which generally prevents wetting between the wheel and workpiece at the contact area. The improved coolant distribution reduces heat, increases efficiency of material removal and reduces the frequency of wheel dressing.
