Grinding Machine: Definition, Types, Parts, Working & Operations

In the manufacturing process grinding operation is also an important operation to make a finished product, so let’s start the topic.

Grinding Machine Definition:
A grinding machine or grinder is an industrial power tool that uses an abrasive wheel for cutting or removing the material.

It is a process of metal cutting by using a rotating abrasive wheel from the surface of the workpiece.

Generally, the grinding is finishing operation to show the high surface quality, accuracy of the shape and dimension.

Grinding machine operation is also carried out for machining too hard material.

Working principle of Grinding Machine:
The working principle of a grinding machine is quite easier to understand.

In a grinding machine, there is an electric motor which supplies the motion power to the grinding wheel with the help of a belt and pulley.

So when we start the electric motor the motor rotates at a certain rpm (150-15000 RPM, it may change according to the types of grinding machine) with the help of v-belt and cone pulley the grinding wheel also starts rotating and we perform the operation.

Here below I mention the various types of grinding machines with their working.
