Machining of Ti6Al4V Alloy using Novel bondless diamond layered grinding wheel for Precision Grinding
Now being tried out for grinding Ti alloys which find increasing use in new applications. Grinding of this material
is difficult and cryogenics using liquid nitrogen is a good way of extending the life of the wheel and enhancing its performance.
While machining the Ti alloys, the cutting zone temperature is so high (reduction of temperature of cutting zone, favorable
change in the chip-grinding grit interaction and the use of novel bondless diamond layered grinding wheel). Our bondless
diamond wheels have been a success giving nanometric finish. The major task of this paper is “Cryogenic high speed grinding
of Ti alloys” with the new wheel.
