Since the beginning of the mechanical invention, hand feed is the basic metal and woodworking method of processing machinery. Regarding the inventory of hand feed grinders, there are many same as the CNC version. In this field, the most common types are belt grinder, bench grinder, cylindrical grinder, surface grinder, tool and cutter grinder, jig grinder, gear grinder, die grinder, angle grinder, and roll grinder, and other types of grinders.
Manual operation is always very common with the hand feed grinding. Cylindrical grinders based on manuals include types with centers and the center-less types. Cylindrical grinders can have multiple grinding wheels for different purposes. Rotating the workpiece and passing through the wheels to form a cylinder. It is used to manufacture precision rods, tubes, bearing races, bushings, and many other components. When manufacturing various high-precision shafts, centre grinding or center machining is usually adopted as the machining process. The main function of this machine is to grind the center of the shaft with high quality.
Even in most processing details, whether manual or computer controlled, roll grinding is almost the same as cylindrical grinding, but there are some critical differences in the basic and fundamental basis of these two categories. The hand feed process for these types of grinders is almost the same. First of all, the roll grinding method was developed specifically for certain problems, which usually require the design of machines for such heavy work. These machines are larger in size, heavier and stronger than ordinary cylindrical grinders. As a result, these machines are usually not prepared for tapered work and tasks. Generally, rolls are used in many industrial fields to process products, such as paper, paint, steel, textiles, and rubber materials.
For the manual abrasive cutting process, a cylindrical grinder by definition is a grinder used to shape both the outer and the inner sides of the work pieces through a grinding mechanism. Some grinding machine models may be designed to have only ID grinding function or only OD grinding. In general, the cylindrical grinding process can produce various shapes of cylindrical workpieces. However, the object must have at least one central axis of rotation, so that it can rotate concentrically during the machining process. This includes but is not limited to cylindrical shapes, such as cams, ellipses, crankshafts, etc. The basic definition of cylindrical grinding is that the machine must have four key functions: first, the workpiece must continuously rotate. Second, the grinding wheel must continuously rotate. Third, the grinding wheel moves forward and backward toward the workpiece. Finally, work pieces are traversed with respect to the grinding wheel.
Due to the different purpose and application, the mechanical inventory in grinding machinery is huge, and the classification is also very complicated. Regarding the inventory of grinding machines, some of them are generally easiest to identify: belt grinder, bench grinder, cylindrical grinder, surface grinder, tool and cutter grinder, jig grinder, gear grinder, die grinder, angle grinder, and roll grinder. Internal grinders may include multiple grinding wheels for different purposes. Rotating the workpiece and feeding to the wheel to form the interior wall of the cylindrical profile shape as planned.
Based on hand feed basis, the procedure of surface grinding still means producing a smooth finish on a flat or other specific surface. It is a widely used abrasive processing technology by which the spinning wheel is covered with rough particles cuts chips of metallic or non-metallic substances from the workpiece to form a flat or smooth surface. Among all grinding processes, such as cylindrical, internal, centerless, the surface grinding is the most common type in the industry since a very early history. Until now, it is still among the various grinding operations. CNC grinding is a finishing process, which uses a rotational abrasive wheel to smooth the surface of metallic or non-metallic materials to provide a fine physical state by removing layers and impurities on the surface of the workpiece under the control of the computer numerical control mechanism that is driven by programmed routes.
