CAPABILITIES OF THE CENTER-TYPE CYLINDRICAL GRINDER

Most common is simple traverse grinding (Figure L-119).
This may be done on interrupted surfaces (Figure L-120) where the wheel face is wide enough to span two or more surfaces.

Multiple-diameter-form grinding (see Figure L-13) is a type of plunge grinding in which the wheel may be form dressed to a desired shape. In straight plunge grinding, the wheel is brought into contact with the workpiece, but the workpiece is not traversed (Figure L-121).

O.D. taper grinding (Figures L-122 and L-123) is done by swiveling the table. Steeper tapers may require that both table and wheelhead be swiveled in combination (Figure L-124).

L-124 L-125 L-126
Angular shoulder grinding (Figure L-125) and angular plunge grinding may require that the wheel be dressed at an appropriate angle (Figure L-126).

L-127 L-128
Internal cylindrical grinding can be straight (Figure L-127) or tapered (Figure L-128). The workpiece is held in a chuck or fixture so that the inside diameter can be accessed by the grinding wheel.
