Abstract:

The term abrasive machining has been expressed in many ways. It is generally used to denote stock removal operations that are more economically performed by abrasive grinding methods than the more conventional means of turning or milling. The two largest fields for abrasive machining are the production of flat surfaces and form grinding from the solid. This report is concerned with the latter grinding various complex external shapes from the solid forging, bar stock or hollow cylindrical items.
