GRINDING MACHINE COST EFFECTIVENESS

Grinding is an expensive process. It is estimated that from one quarter to half the money spent on machining in industrialized nations is spent on abrasive operations.
Extensive research has been done to optimize the process to make it more cost effective with regard to removal rates and minimizing machine cycle times.
Because the objective of manufacturing is to obtain the lowest piece-part cost for the required quality (and quantity) of these parts, ever improving abrasive machining methods are critical to achieving this objective.
For example, software has been developed for optimizing grinding and dressing cycles to achieve minimum costs.
Such software has been of special importance where the absence of thermal damage is critical, such as bearing component grinding.
