Paper Abstract

In recent times, resin bond grinding wheels have often been used for the precise grinding of aspheric surfaces. In this paper, the influence of changes in the circumferential speed of the resin bond grinding wheel on the microroughness of the produced surface and also on the volume of the structures and the scratches is presented. The article also discusses how the cutting wear of the tool affects the surface quality and shows the correlation between the circumferential speed and the rate of degradation of the resin bond grinding wheel. A circumferential speed interval from 12 m/s to 24 m/s was investigated and the effect of tool degradation was observed at 1.9-hour intervals. The results of the experiment show that the optimal circumferential speed of the tool lies around 20 m/s. At this speed, the tool produces a perfectly polishable surface and tool degradation is minimized.
