Centerless Grinding Solutions for Ceramic Part Manufacturers in Germany
Our client needed a finishing solution to replace the vibratory grinding process for ceramic parts processing. The vibratory grinding machine produced poor quality so the client was manually treating the surface after centerless grinding process. The client wanted to process Al2O3 material parts with an outer diameter of 12Ø, an inner diameter of 7Ø, and a length of 22mm. Our engineering team has suggested centerless grinding machines popular to manufacturers of piston pins, shafts and bearings whose outer diameters stay the same.
The required surface roughness after superfinishing was Rp less than 0.2 µm with a tolerance of 0.008mm. The ceramic parts required extremely hard stones like diamond, but the challenge was finding the right grade of stones. If the stone property were too soft, the client had to replace the stones very often and the stone cost would drive up production costs. After testing many samples with a mix of different grade stones, we were able to develop a customized superfinishing machine to minimize stone wear and yet meet all our customer’s requirements.
