Texturing Methods of Abrasive Grinding Wheels

Creating textures on abrasive wheels is a strategy that allows a significant improvement in grinding operations. The reduction of the internal stresses in the workpiece and the temperature during the grinding operation generates an increase in the dimensional accuracy of the workpiece and a longer tool life. Textured abrasive wheels can be produced in many different ways. Depending on the processing method, the dimensional accuracy of the tool and its applicability is changed.

1. Introduction

Abrasive grinding wheels are widely used in industry for the roughing and surface finishing of components through a chip-removal process [1][2]. This requires very high cutting forces which, together with the friction between the tool and the workpiece to be worn, generate high amounts of heat [3][4]. Excess heat can cause several problems, both in the part to be machined—a poor surface finish and change to its microstructure, in particular—and in the tool, especially its premature wear [5][6].

2. Texturing Methods of Abrasive Grinding Wheels

2.1. Machined Grooves

By machining a standard grinding wheel with another type of tool, such as a diamond disc, a milling cutter, or single- or multi-point tools, machined grooves can be formed. The machining tool is controlled manually, by an electromagnetic shaker or a servomotor. In other cases, the tool is static, and the grinding wheel movement is controlled.
The principle of the method is shown in Figure 1, where, in this case, a single-point diamond dressing tool is used to create a helically formed groove on the working surface of the grinding wheel with a groove depth of ag and a groove width of bg [7]. The main disadvantage of the method is the wear of the grooving tool.
Figure 1. Production principle for machined grooves; groove patterns and geometries [7].
Table 1 summarizes the main subject of each published work on machined grooves; the groove geometries investigated in these works and the types of tools used for production are summarized in Table 2.
Table 1. Summary of publications on machined grooves.
Table 2. Grooving tools and machined groove geometries and dimensions.
From Table 1, it can be gathered that the majority of the authors who study the machined groove method have published works evaluating the influence of groove parameters (such as angle, size, and geometry) on grinding operations. In addition, there are authors who have published novel grooving strategies using other types of tools to create grooves [31][33] or which involve the use of dedicated software, using the finite element method (FEM) to obtain the numerical vibration mode shape of the grinding wheel during texturing [27] or to develop test geometries in order to compensate for kinematic errors [29]. It is also clear that the use of mathematical models has gained attention in recent years. These models can be used, for example, to simulate the profiles of grooves both in the grinding wheel and in the profile generated in the workpiece [24][25].
In a general context, grooves produced by mechanical methods have simple geometries. Table 2 shows that the most commonly used geometry is the helical geometry, followed by slit geometries (discontinuous lines). Zigzag and linear cross-shaped grooves (like a mesh) were also produced. Although some authors have named the geometries of the grooves differently, this work sought to group geometrically similar grooves (not necessarily by the names given by the authors); for example, Silva et al. [23] described the shape of the grooves as “Round dimples and chevrons”; however, in the present discussion, the grooves were classified as “slits and zigzag”, respectively. An example of each geometry is shown in Figure 2. The largest groove width produced by this method was 5 mm and the smallest was 0.0012 mm, while the depth varied between 5.0 and 0.002 mm.
Figure 2. Machined grooves in (a) slit form [17], (b) helical form, (c) zigzag form, and (d) cross linear form [8].
Table 2 also shows that the most used tools for grooving are single-point tools and cutting discs. All grooves produced by cutting discs have helical geometries, except for the work carried out by Silva et al. [27], who produced grooves with a slit form on the surface of an abrasive wheel. Figure 3a illustrates the texturing process for a grinding wheel using a cutting disc (dressing form roller) [26]. The individual setup of the dressing kinematic parameters, including the form of the dresser, the dressing depth of cut (aed), and the dressing feed (fad), creates the required structures on the wheel surface. As shown in Figure 3b, the wheel is initially flattened under standard dressing conditions (step 1). The appropriate structure is then formed by treating the wheel surface with an overlap ratio less than one (Ud < 1) (step 2).
Figure 3. Illustration of the texturing process of the grinding wheel: (a) flattening the grinding wheel with standard dressing, followed by specific conditioning to form macrostructures on the wheel’s surface (b) [26].
A cutting disc does not provide the accuracy and flexibility suitable for producing more complex grooves. Using a single-point diamond tool, it is possible to produce grooves with more detail, such as zigzag forms. Grooves produced with diamond tools, whether single-point or multi-point, have conical profiles characteristic of the tips of the grooving tools, as shown in Figure 1. However, to analyze groove width and depth separately, it is necessary to be able to generate a groove the width of which is independent of its depth. In order to create a rectangular section groove, Riebel et al. [33] adapted a polycrystalline diamond tool. These tools are manufactured with diamond grits inserted in a metallic matrix. The original had a cylindrical shape with a diameter of 3.2 mm, while the adapted tool was in the form of a “shank” or a rectangular prism, the 1.7 mm edge of which was used to groove a grinding wheel. The deepest grooves fashioned in the study took nearly 200 passes of the cutting tool to achieve their full depth; thus, any inaccuracy in position synchronization between the groover and the wheel would result in an error in the final groove geometry [33].
In general, machining is the most commonly used method among researchers, possibly due to the low costs and versatility. However, when the process is carried out manually, the finishing of the part is usually not well-controlled, so this process has been automated, which can make the method more expensive. The main disadvantage of the method is the intensive wear of the texturing tool. Most of the published work on machined grooves is aimed at evaluating the influence of groove parameters (such as angle, size, and geometry) on grinding operations. Despite being a simple and conventional method, new strategies, such as the application of software to compensate for kinematic errors, have also been shown to be a field of interest for the authors, as has the use of mathematical models.

2.2. Engineered Grooves

On monolayer grinding wheels, instead of removing grains on the wheel surface, it is possible to create grooves by placing the abrasive grits in a pre-defined pattern [34]. Grinding wheels with ordered grain distributions are called engineered wheels, where the texture depth is the height of the abrasive particle and the width is the space between each grain or agglomerate (Figure 4) [35]. Despite their inherent advantages in grinding, it is difficult to manufacture designed wheels with tiny grains because abrasive grains are always positioned manually or via the use of a template, which is strongly reliant on grain size [36].
Figure 4. Topography of a monolayer abrasive grinding wheel with an arrangement pattern [35].
The main subject of each published work on engineered grinding wheels is summarized in Table 3; the groove geometries investigated in these works are summarized in Table 4.
Table 3. Summary of publications on engineered grooves.
Table 4. Engineered groove geometries and dimensions.
Table 3 shows that the main objective of the authors working with engineered grooves is the development of mathematical models and simulations capable of describing the grinding process. This type of approach models the grinding process to fully analyze the influence of various parameters and to describe, for example, the material removal mechanism, grain density, or grinding temperature [35][38][39]. By using these strategies, the number of experiments required can be significantly reduced. Furthermore, purely experimental methods only provide data at the end of grinding, for example, the surface topography of the finally generated part, but cannot reflect the material-removal mechanism in the machining process [37]. On the other hand, although in smaller numbers, there are authors carrying out purely experimental work, testing different geometries and comparing them with monolayer abrasive wheels with random grain distributions.
Engineered grooves are mostly studied on wheels with a defined abrasive arrangement in a single layer. Research on grinding wheels with 3D, controllable, abrasive arrangements is rarely mentioned. In the work developed by Qiu et al. [50], grinding wheels were designed with different 3D, controllable, abrasive arrangements in the space. Using a kinematic equation, the grinding trajectories were estimated in order to determine the effects of 3D abrasive configurations on the surface quality of the workpiece during the grinding process. To manufacture grinding wheels, a stereolithography equipment machine utilizing additive manufacturing technology was created. The influence of abrasive dispersion on the regularity of grinding trajectories was explored experimentally and computationally.
From Table 4, it can be gleaned that the geometry most studied by the authors is the phyllotaxis type. Phyllotaxis is a kind of order that the leaves, fruit, and organizations of most plants conform to [59]. Figure 5 depicts typical examples of phyllotactic patterns [44]. Although the phyllotaxis idea has existed for more than a century, it has only recently been investigated by specialists and academics. The leaves or other natural organizations must have evolved patterns to withstand wind force to a certain degree, allowing plants to withstand wind. The phyllotactic pattern must be the pattern that allows wind and rain to move through the spaces between leaves more readily in order to lessen the influence of wind force. The characteristics of the phyllotactic pattern must meet the requirements of the designed grinding wheel with respect to the program (flow rate and speed, for example) and how the fluid is provided for the contact zone [44]. Therefore, authors who use this concept usually work with simulations and mathematical modeling, precisely to define the geometry chosen with accuracy and its potential gain.
Figure 5. Typical examples of phyllotactic patterns: (a) keteleeria davidiana, (b) anthurium, and (c) pinecone [44].
Abrasive wheels with an internal cooling system have been studied by many authors in the last decade, the structure of which is shown in Figure 6a [58]. The coolant is injected directly into the grinding zone via the internal channel to prevent lubricant waste and energy consumption caused by the air barrier [54]. To further improve the coolant flow in the contact area with the workpiece, the authors have also produced engineered grooves in this type of abrasive grinding wheel. For example, in Figure 6b [58], the phyllotaxy concept was used to develop a sunflower texture on the grinding wheel’s abrasive ring.
Figure 6. (a) Structure of the internal-cooling grooved grinding wheel and (b) the abrasive ring with the phyllotactic pattern of the abrasive [58].
Engineered grooves represent a field that has seen many publications since 2015. Researchers have paid special attention to the simulation and numerical modeling of abrasive particle arrays in order to continually improve the geometries that can be obtained using this method. Grinding wheels with 3D, controllable, abrasive arrangements may be a field of interest in the future, as the research carried out has resulted in only one publication reporting this type of engineered groove. The main disadvantage of the method is the time required to construct the arrangement, which is often achieved grain by grain.

2.3. Laser Grooves

Laser conditioning is a novel, non-contact approach that may be used with a wide range of abrasives and bonding materials [60]. Laser-based thermal procedures utilize high-energy-density laser beams to ablate particular regions on abrasive tool surfaces so that materials within designed textural regions can be eliminated by melting, heating, vaporization, plasma generation, ablation of grits and bonds, or evaporation [61][62]. A common experimental setup for laser structuring is show in Figure 7 [63]. The primary advantages of the laser approach are the absence of tool wear, excellent reproducibility and controllability, high accuracy, and relatively quick processing time. In addition, this approach permits the microtexturing of grinding wheels [60].
Figure 7. Experimental setup for laser structuring [63].
The main subject of each publication on laser grooves is summarized in Table 5; the respective groove geometries and dimensions investigated are presented in Table 6.
Table 5. Summary of publications on laser grooves.
Table 6. Laser groove geometries and dimensions.
From Table 5, the evaluation of the influence of groove parameters on grinding operations is the area with the most publications. The data presented in Table 6 complement this information, as it is possible to find a wide range of different geometries. With the laser method, it is possible to produce macro- and microtextures from simple geometries, such as “helical” geometries, to more complex geometries, such as “waves” and “hemispheres”, as shown in Figure 8 [62][68].
Figure 8. Groove geometries produced by the laser method: (a) hemispheres and (b) waves [62][68].
Some authors performed quite complete works from the point of view of studying groove parameters. Zhang et al. [66] produced six different structured grinding wheels. Different wheel speeds, depths of cut, and constant feed rates were utilized in a series of studies to determine their effects on the grinding performance of the wheel. The grinding forces were compared, and the impacts of wheel speed, depth of cut, and feed rate on grinding force were studied. In addition, the different characteristics of grinding wheel wear and surface roughness were compared. In another work developed by Zhang et al. [69], five different textures were produced (Figure 9). In addition to evaluating grinding forces and roughness, grinding temperatures were also discussed. Monier et al. [78] proposed a simulation approach for modeling textured wheels and their corresponding structured surfaces under a variety of operating situations. Regular and irregular geometries were studied, varying the spacing, angle, and dimension of the segments. However, grinding tests were performed only for one simple geometry (slot form).
Figure 9. Different laser groove patterns discussed by Zhang et al. [69].
In recent years, researchers have also offered methodological innovations. To separate the incubation impact of adjacent scanning, Hou et al. [79] developed an alternating laser scanning approach paired with staggered forward and backward traces with double pitch offset. The effects of ultrafast laser ablation on grinding wheel groove morphologies were investigated. In engineering practice, the laser machining model suggested by Geng et al. [80] offers a condition for the superabrasive grinding wheel with more efficiency and adaptability. A nanosecond pulse laser was incorporated into an ultra-precision machine tool and utilized for in-line grinding wheel conditioning, dressing, and texturing. To create precise profiles on the grinding wheel surface, an offset compensation approach taking into account the fluctuating depth of focus at different laser irradiation positions was developed [79][80].
Potential problems still need to be defined, such as the adjustment of texturing parameters, high energy consumption, and surface thermal damage [34]. To fill this gap, Li et al. [74] studied the effects of varying parameters of the continuous wave CO2 laser method on the production of five different textures on the surfaces of diamond abrasive tools. The author highlighted the importance of proper parameter selection. The results are shown in Figure 10. It is noteworthy that, unlike all other works, Li et al. [74] used a continuous wave laser, instead of a pulsed one.
Figure 10. Texture appearance obtained using (a) appropriate and (b) inappropriate parameters [74].
The predominant benefits of this technology are no tool wear, excellent repeatability and control, high accuracy, and a very quick process time. In addition, this approach permits the microtexturing of grinding wheels. On the other hand, laser groove manufacturing requires the fine tuning of laser beam parameters before texturing and high power consumption control and entails high equipment maintenance costs.

2.4. 3D-Printed Grooves

The emergence of 3D printing technology enabled the fabrication of grinding wheels with intricate porous structures in a novel manner. Except for work developed by Qiu et al. [50], who produced a multi-layer engineered abrasive wheel, additive manufacturing is the only method that presents the possibility of texturing a wheel to the fullest extent, eliminating the need to refashion grooves after wear.
Grooved grinding wheels produced by this method can be obtained in different ways. Laser-assisted 3D printing systems employ high-powered laser beams to sinter or fuse consecutive cross sections of material to create a product, while DIW (direct ink writing) is an extrusion-based, heat-free approach, in which a ceramic ink can be extruded through a nozzle and form the desired structure [81]. Table 7 summarizes the work developed in this area; Table 8 specifies the groove geometries and the 3D printing methods used.
Table 7. Summary of publications on 3D printed grooves.
Table 8. Three-dimensional printing methods and geometries.
The SLM manufacturing principle adopted by some authors [82][83][84][85] is represented in Figure 11 [82], and some texturized grinding wheels that have been produced are shown in Figure 12 [82][85]. The SLM device has a powder supply system and a laser scanning system. The laser beam will selectively melt the AlSi10Mg powder layer by layer in accordance with the CAD data. The molten alloy powder will then solidify around the diamond abrasive grain to form the grinding wheel’s bond. The manufacturing is conducted in an inert atmosphere, and the wheel head is assembled on an aluminum substrate. Using wire electro-discharge machining, the wheel head is separated from the substrate following manufacture.
Figure 11. Principle of the SLM process [82].
Figure 12. Abrasive wheels structured by the SLM method by (a) Tian et al. [82] and (b) Li et al. [85].
The disadvantage of the SLM method is that, due to the temperatures involved, graphitization of diamond grains may occur. Furthermore, as the laser melts the powders into a layer-by-layer mass, some inhomogeneity among the layers may result [81].
The SLS technique developed by Du et al. [83] to produce structured abrasive wheels is likewise based on additive layer-by-layer manufacture. The nylon powder used for the 3D-printed grooves has not been scanned and sintered. After SLS, the untreated nylon powder is lost and flows out, leaving grooves like those shown in Figure 13. According to the authors, it is impossible to create internal linked holes with diameters of less than 1.5 mm. When printing smaller holes, the holes will get blocked, and internal channels cannot be generated [83].
Figure 13. Abrasive grinding wheel with internal cooling holes produced by the SLS method [83].
The manufacturing method proposed by Huang et al. [81] and the appearance of the grinding wheels are presented in Figure 14. The DIW method consists, first, in preparing a ceramic ink by dissolving xanthan gum in water and then mixing it with n68 (vitrified bond powder), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA—as the pore former), and diamond powder (W10), previously homogenized (Figure 14a,b). Then, as shown in Figure 14c, the ceramic ink is extruded by a direct ink writing machine. After the sintering process, the manufactured grinding wheels are cooled in an oven. A final sample can be seen in Figure 14d.
Figure 14. Fabrication procedure of the diamond grinding wheel by DIW: (a) mixing of components, (b) formulation, (c) printing and (d) final appearance of the sample [81].
Additive manufacturing technology can be used in a variety of ways to build textured abrasive wheels. Despite being a method that requires a lot of time and resources, it can produce three-dimensional grooves, eliminating the need for tool reconditioning.

2.5. Segmented Grooves

Grinding wheels with segmented grooves are produced by including segments in the grinding wheel’s manufacturing mold. The grooves will have the shape of the segments present in the mold. Once the grooves are completely worn out, it is not possible, by this method, to produce them again. An example of a segmented grinding wheel is shown in Figure 15 [86].
Figure 15. A segmented grinding wheel [86].
Table 9 summarizes the main subject of each published work on segmented wheels.
Table 9. Summary of the works on segmented grooves.
From Table 9, it can be seen that the works carried out using this method compare different aspects of the grinding operation of a segmented grinding wheel with the operation of a conventional wheel. All works used the same groove geometry, shown in Figure 18, with an intermittent ratio of 0.5. The authors did not provide detailed information on the abrasive wheel manufacturing method.

2.6. Abrasive Waterjet

Abrasive waterjet (AWJ) machining is regarded as a cold material removal technique with great potential for the very effective dressing of grinding wheels [89]. As shown schematically in Figure 16, the high-velocity abrasive waterjet is targeted and injected in a radial mode at a standoff distance from the abrasive waterjet nozzle to the target grinding wheel [90]. Table 10 summarizes the works in this area; Table 11 specifies the studied groove geometries.
Figure 16. Illustration of the texturing procedure by microabrasive waterjet [90].
Table 10. Summary of publications on grooves produced by AWJ.
Table 11. Geometries and dimensions of the grooves produced by AWJ.
The low dressing accuracy associated with AWJ micromachining technology is a significant obstacle to its employment in the production of grinding wheels with precise grooves [93]. Therefore, the authors who study this method, as can be seen in Table 10, seek to optimize the precision of the groove production process. From Table 11, it can be seen that the geometries used are relatively simple, although it is possible to produce discontinuous grooves with angular shapes, as shown in Figure 17 [91].
Figure 17. Grooves produced by the AWJ method [91].
