Method of grinding a workpiece having a cylindrical bearing surface and method for determining processing parameters
A method of grinding a workpiece by means of a grinding wheel is disclosed. The workpiece comprises a cylindrical bearing surface, a radially extending sidewall extending outward from the cylindrical bearing surface, and a curved transition portion connecting the cylindrical bearing surface with the sidewall. During grinding, the feed in an increment is selected so as to achieve a pre-set maximum surface temperature of the workpiece at a point of the grinding wheel resulting in the highest surface temperature of the workpiece. Furthermore, a method for determining processing parameters for such a grinding method is disclosed.
