Abstract

The surface finish is one of important evaluation items of grinding results as well as the form and size accuracy or the surface quality in grinding. The surface finish of the ground surface has never been measured after each grinding cycle because the measurement of the surface finish needs relatively a long duration by existing surface roughness testers and applications of surface roughness tester in each grinding cycle would affect mass-production processes. We propose a rapid on-machine measurement technique of the surface finish, which can check the surface finish of cylindrical workpieces rotating on cylindrical grinding machines in a split second just after each grinding cycle, and the usefulness without hampering mass-production grinding processes is shown in this study.
