Grinding Attachment for Lathe
Grinding operation is performed to obtain a fine surface finish after performing turning operation on lathe machine for cylindrical jobs. This is done to obtain required dimensions of part to be used in any assembly.Thus to perform these two operations on same machine the attachment is designed. To verify the design the attachment is fabricated.This work describes an attempt to decrease the time in loading and unloading of workpeice with desired surface finish. The report describes the selection of wheel for grinding. It also considers the rigidity of design, damping of vibration due to motor speed and stress analysis of critical part of design, which is analyzed on INVENTOR software and compared with theoretical calculations. It also lists the various operations performed to fabricate the attachment. The results are obtained in form of tolerance limits which are compared with results of individual grinding machine operation on different machine and the conclusion are stated.
