Time for Cylindrical Grinding Cut = Length of Cut / ( Feed/Rev. × r.p.m. )
Cylindrical grinding is mainly carried out on cylindrical grinding machines to grind the outer cylinder, outer cone and shaft shoulder end face of shaft workpieces. During grinding, the workpiece rotates at a low speed. If the workpiece moves longitudinally back and forth at the same time and the grinding wheel feeds laterally relative to the workpiece after each single or double stroke of longitudinal movement, it is called the longitudinal grinding method. If the width of the grinding wheel is greater than the length of the surface to be ground, the workpiece does not move longitudinally during the grinding process, but the grinding wheel continuously feeds transversely relative to the workpiece, which is called plunge grinding. Generally, the plunge grinding method is more efficient than the longitudinal grinding method. If the grinding wheel is dressed to a profiled surface, plunge grinding can machine the profiled outer surface.
