Final Report- CEGRIS II (Centreless grinding simulation part II)

Project ID: 16547
Funded under: FP6-IST

Abstract

This is the executive summary report for the CEGRIS II project, which aims to minimise the long set-up times for the centreless grinding process in order to enhance manufacturing productivity by European companies. This goal was achieved by means of the three-dimensional (3D) simulation model of the complex centreless through-feed grinding process, which is being developed for the project. An additional goal of the initiative has been the reduction of water pollution.

This document provides an overview of how the software tool and the 3D model that have been developed are embedded in a cave-environment for visualisation of the work piece. The report concludes with ways of reducing the amount of coolant used, thereby protecting the water supply from pollution.
