Abstract

SOUZA, C. N. de et al. Analysis of diametrical wear of grinding wheel and roundness errors in the machining of steel VC 131. J. Braz. Soc. Mech. Sci. & Eng. [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.2, pp. 209-212. ISSN 1678-5878.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1678-58782004000200013.

Due to the high industrial competitiveness, the rigorous laws of environmental protection, the necessary reduction of costs, the mechanical industry sees itself forced to worry more and more with the refinement of your processes and products. In this context, can be mentioned the need to eliminate the roundness errors that appear after the grinding process. This work has the objective of verifying if optimized nozzles for the application of cutting fluid in the grinding process can minimize the formation of the roundness errors and the diametrical wear of grinding wheel in the machining of the steel VC 131 with 60 HRc, when compared to the conventional nozzles. These nozzles were analyzed using two types of grinding wheels and two different cutting fluids. Was verified that the nozzle of 3mm of diameter, integral oil and the CBN grinding wheel, were the best options to obtain smaller roundness errors and the lowest diametrical wears of grinding wheels.

Keywords : Optimized application; diametrical wear; roundness errors; cutting fluid.
