Internal Grinding

Internal grinding is used for the finishing of internal holes and is carried out on an internal grinding machine or a universal cylindrical grinding machine. Through holes, non-through holes, cylindrical or conical holes, stepped holes and hole end faces can be processed. The dimensional accuracy of the grinding hole can reach IT6~IT7 level, and the surface roughness is Ra0.8~0.2μm. Using high-precision grinding process, the dimensional accuracy can be controlled within 0.005mm. Surface roughness Ra0.1~0.025μm.

The commonly used shapes of internal grinding wheels are flat and cup (see the figure below). Among them, the flat grinding wheel is the most commonly used, and the cup-shaped grinding wheel is more advantageous for grinding stepped holes and sections.


What are the methods of internal grinding?

external internal grinding
1. Center type internal grinding
When grinding, the workpiece rotates around the center line of the main shaft of the headstock. Common internal grinding machines or universal cylindrical grinding machines belong to this form, which is suitable for grinding the inner holes of sleeves, gears, flanges and other parts.

2. Planetary Internal Grinding
During grinding, the workpiece is fixed and does not rotate. In addition to high-speed rotation around its own axis, the grinding wheel also rotates around the center of the hole to be ground at a low speed to achieve circular feed; in addition, the grinding wheel also performs longitudinal feed motion and periodic lateral feed. Give. The lateral feed of the grinding wheel is realized by increasing the radius of gyration of the planetary motion. Planetary internal grinding machines are mainly used for grinding parts that are bulky and inconvenient to rotate.

3. Centerless internal grinding
On the centerless internal grinding machine, the workpiece is supported on the support wheel and the pressure wheel with its finished outer circle, and is driven by the guide wheel to rotate. This grinding method is suitable for grinding the inner hole of thin-walled annular parts.

How to choose internal grinding wheel
The selection is based on the workpiece hole, and there should be an appropriate ratio between the two. Usually the diameter of the grinding wheel is 0.5~0.9 of the hole diameter.
