Grinding - 5: Surface Grinder Feeding and Coolant
|WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.|
|The surface grinder demonstrated in this topic has a hydraulic feeding system (figure 1) which actuates the table. Left and right motion is governed by a set of dogs (figure 2) which can be set to limit the feeding distance. Another set of dogs can be set to limit the in and out feeding distance (figure 3). The speed and distance offset for each move is governed by a set of bleeder valves in the hydraulic circuit (not shown)
Coolant for this grinder is fed, cleaned, cooled, and recirculated by a separate system (figure 4).
