Development of machining apparatus for ceramic ball bearing Aum, Ho-Sung; Roh, Byung-Ok; Lee, Soo-Wohn; Jang, Tae-Suk;
Recently a new process known as the magnetic fluid grinding has been developed, which can remove material from the surface of ceramic balls by fifty to one hundred times more rapidly than the conventional lapping process. In this study, the ceramic balls with various compositions are made and ground by using the magnetic fluid grinding technique with various machining parameters. In order to make well-round shaped balls by using the magnetic fluid grinding technique, the fundamental research to find out the machining factors has been carried out. Developing an equipment with higher efficiency and reliability in the machining could certainly lead to the higher productivity with excellent quality of ceramic balls.
