A Practical Guide to Precision Grinding

Published: | grinding, Abrasives

This book has been written for the people who, figuratively speaking, put their noses to the grindstone every day. The book distills what the author, Walter Graf, learned during over 40 years in the abrasive industry: Travelling the industrialised world, optimising customers’ grinding processes, and giving grinding seminars. 

372 pages, divided into some 20 chapters covering, among others, OD & ID cylindrical grinding, centerless grinding, surface and creep-feed grinding, gear grinding, how to run grinding tests, diamond dressing, giving practical advice on effectively running these processes. Excessive wordiness was consciously avoided and counterbalanced by graphics and simple formulas to make the contents understandable, digestible and actionable.
