Cutting Speed, Feed and Depth of Cut of Grinding Machine

Cutting Speed

Cutting speed of a grinding process is the relative speed of the grinding wheel and the workpiece. It is expressed in m/sec.

The cutting speed of the wheel is expressed as

formula4

Feed

Feed in a grinding process is the longitudinal movement of the work mounted on the table per revolution of the grinding wheel. It is expressed in  mm per revolution.

The longitudinal feed during rough grinding is approximately 0.6 to 0.9 of the width of the wheel and 0.4 to 0.6 of the width of the wheel during finish grinding.

Depth of Cut

The thickness of the metal layer removed from the work in one pass of the wheel is known as depth of cut. It is expressed in mm. Depth of cut is kept ranging from 0.005 to 0.04mm.
