We were discussing various types of grinding process in our previous post, where we have discussed each grinding process in detail.  We have also discussed basic principle of grinding in our previous post, where we have seen the basics of grinding process and various abrasives materials as well as we have also noted the various factors affecting the quality of object surface created by grinding process. 

Let us go ahead to continue our discussion about the various applications of grinding process and finally we will see the advantage of grinding process.

Applications of grinding process

Grinding process are used in industries for following activities as mentioned here
  1. Cylindrical grinding process is used for grinding the outer surface of cylindrical object
  2. Centerless grinding process is used for preparing the transmission bushing, shouldered pins and ceramic shafts for circulator pumps.
  3. Internal grinding process is used for finishing the tapered, straight and formed holes precisely.
  4. There are few special grinders used for sharpen the milling cutters, taps, other various machine cutting tool cutter and reamers.

Other applications of grinding

  1. Slitting & parting
  2. Surface finishing
  3. Deburring & descaling
  4. Abrasive milling
  5. Finishing cylindrical and flat surface
  6. Grinding of various tools and cutters 

Advantage of grinding process

There are following advantage of grinding process as mentioned here.
  1. Investment is less
  2. Working principle and operation is simple
  3. It does not require additional skills
  4. Surface finishing will be approximate 10 times better as compared to milling and turning process of machining.
  5. Dimensional accuracy will be quite good
  6. Grinding process could be performed on hardened and unhardened workpiece also
I will request to my readers to advise about the more applications and advantage of grinding process by giving comment in comment box to improve this article.
