Abstract

The cam grinding mechanism with a CNC cam grinder is analyzed. A numerical simulation method has been developed to obtain the grinding results. Special cam grinding methods, which appropriately control both the rotational angle speed of workpiece and the horizontal travel speed of wheel head, are presented in order to achieve higher precision in cam grinding. It is found that suitable setting of both the rotational angular velocity of workpiece and the feed rate of wheel head provides stable grinding results.
