Abstract

In this study, a non-contact type touch sensor, which can predict a machining start point in an external cylindrical plunge grinding process, is developed. The detecting mechanism of this sensor is based on the peculiar grinding fluid spouting phenomenon, which appears in a grinding process with a porous grinding wheel. Grinding fluid cools the sensor, which is previously heated by the Joule's heat slightly, and then a quantity of spouting grinding fluid increases with a decrease of a distance between grinding wheel and workpiece. Therefore, a unique touch sensing method is proposed, in which the residual wheel head approach distance can be predicted by the sensor output change in a wheel head approach.
