CASE STUDY: Peel Grinding of Turbo Charger

High-Speed Peel Grinding of Turbo Charger Blade Profile with Vitrified CBN

Turbocharger-1Here is an example of Meister’s large wheel expertise in action.  In this application the customer is grinding a profile on the tips of turbo charger blades.  The material is Inconel and cycle time and throughput is critical to meet production demands.  To achieve success the customer uses a Meister Ø400mm Vitrified Bonded CBN wheel that is dynamically balanced to run at high speeds (140m/s) for maximum material removal rate.

The process runs very stable with a cycle time of 10 seconds per part and a skip dress of 300 parts.
