Measuring the surface of grinding wheels can effectively control part size and grind-line on disc grinders.
On disc grinders, direct in-process part measurement can sometimes be extremely difficult. Even if possible, grinding wheels wear at different rates, and may drift out of line with the tooling. Measuring the position of the surface of the grinding wheels has proven to be a realistic solution to both problems.
Control Gaging has used several wheel position gaging techniques successfully, holding part size or wheel location to tolerances within several microns. Using artificial diamonds and timed interval contact to minimize wear, these techniques can be effective tools in managing disc grinding processes.
