Beschreibung

Bronze bonded grinding wheels are characterized by their high wear resistance and thermal conductivity. Beside the bond composition the sintering process plays a major role regarding the resulting grinding wheel properties. This paper contributes to a better understanding of the relationship between the manufacturing process and the resulting properties of the grinding wheel. Therefore, the influence of the sintering temperature and the heating rate in interaction with the bronze composition are investigated. The hardness and the critical bond stress measured at grinding layer samples are used to evaluate the mechanical strength and the structural cohesion. It is also shown how the mentioned parameters affect the productivity and energy efficiency of the manufacturing process by calculating the total time and the energy demand of the sintering process.
