Grinding machine and Grinding operations[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

I think it is fine to have both Grinding machine and Grinding operations as long as they don't overlap and the articles are large enough to justify having them separated.

The main section types of grinding process doesn't overlap with Grinding machine and if it is expanded it would justify having this article separated.

dressing the wheel[edit]

Would it be better to confine the discussion of wheel dressing to the article on grinding wheels? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wilhkar (talkcontribs) 19:09, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that's definitely one option. Another is making an article about dressing, if you think there is enough information to warrant it. Note that there is already an article about the grinding dresser. I think that article should be merged into whatever we do about dressing in general. Wizard191 (talk) 20:47, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
I like that as a plan.Wilhkar (talk) 21:29, 17 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar
I'm going to put stuff about the dressing process into the dresser article. we can decide at another time whether to have a process or an equipment article on this. Wilhkar (talk) 21:50, 17 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar

Creep-feed grinding[edit]

Just a note that Stuart Salmon, who I referenced in the CFG section, is considered one of the foremost experts in grinding. It was just luck that an article turned up this month in Mfg. Eng. mag. Wilhkar (talk) 21:31, 17 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar

grinding wheel[edit]

The characteristics of the wheel described here seem likely to apply to any grinding wheel, thus would they belong in the grinding wheel article instead of here? Wilhkar (talk) 23:51, 17 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar

Most of the detail moved to the grinding wheel article. Is the summary I wrote enough? Wilhkar (talk) 20:28, 22 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar

surface grinding[edit]

Does this section need to be presented more as a summary, with most of the details residing in the main surface grinding article? Wilhkar (talk) 21:16, 20 February 2010 (UTC)wilhkar

cylindrical grinding[edit]

Should this section, on the process, refer to the main article, cylindrical grinder? That article is an equipment article. I linked to it in the context of the written section. Wilhkar (talk) 17:49, 23 February 2010 (UTC) wilhkar

I'm thinking that cylindrical grinder should be moved to cylindircal grinding and then a main temp can be added here and it will flow better with how most of the other metalworking articles work (with the article being about the process and any specialized equipment is also contained within the article).

I think the end of the first paragraph should be changes. one "thou", IS 0.001 but not == 25 micron. double equals sign means "identical to" and the actual true conversion is not 1 thou to 25 microns, I believe it is 25.4 microns. double check me on that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:45, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, you are right. I fixed it. Wizard191 (talk) 15:08, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Electrolytic erosion video[edit]

I uploaded this video which might go nicely in this article if I only knew how to work it in. Perhaps someone more skilled in the art can contribute. --ke4roh (talk) 02:50, 24 February 2011 (UTC)

It's a nice video, but I think that "Electrolytic erosion" is actually an uncommon name for Electrical discharge machining. If you can confirm this I can put the video in the Electrical discharge machining article. Wizard191 (talk) 18:50, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep, that's it.[1] Thanks! -- ke4roh (talk) 20:10, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

The ELID methods uses electrochemically erosion to oxidize part of the erosion wheel. Then, when starting to grind, that layer erodes and the abrasive particles start machining the workpiece. When particles are eroded, they are electrochemically oxidized and process starts again. --Xa2r (talk) 16:31:50, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
