Learn about ID grinding wheel performance:

  • Animated diagram of ID grinding process
    • When exploring a new abrasive wheel for ID grinding, it’s important to understand your current and potential grinding performance. The specific material removal rate, also known under the abbreviation Q’w, indicates how many mm3 are removed per second with a 1 mm-wide wheel. This value allows for a direct comparison between different grinding wheels and grinding processes.
    • Formula for the calculation of Q’w
    • Traverse grinding 〖Q'〗_w=(a_(e ) x n_(w ) x d_w x π)/60
    • Plunge grinding 〖Q'〗_w=(v_(f ) x d_(w ) x π)/60
    • Q’w Recommendations
    • 1.0 mm3/mm/s: Good average
      1.5 mm3/mm/s: Target value
      5.0 mm3/mm/s: High performance grinding with CBN
      0.3 mm3/mm/s: Finishing
