Peel grinding

In general, there is always the possibility of removing the entire stock in one grinding pass. This procedure is referred to as external cylindrical peel grinding. The feed motion is made outside the workpiece contact, and the longitudinal feed speed and the workpiece speed are lower than during traverse grinding. Due to the high wear rate on the grinding wheels, CBN grinding wheels are often used in this process.

High-speed peel grinding is the ideal method for frequently changing grinding tasks and small batch sizes. Due to the low grinding forces, in most cases the friction of the center point of the workhead is sufficient for driving. Thus, the time-consuming change-over of workpiece drives is completely eliminated, while the need to change the grinding wheel is mostly eliminated. It is only neccessary for a few, extremely different grinding tasks. The high dynamic rigidity has a very positive influence on the contour-defining motion sequences, laying the groundwork for high shape and endurance accuracy.
