Troubleshooting Tips: Segments

Problem Cause Correction
Poor surface finish N/A Decrease table speed
N/A Slow finish downfeed rate and spark out
N/A If grinding dry, try grinding wet
N/A Check coolant for maximum flow
N/A Check coolant for excessive contamination
Segment acting too hard/burning
Low stock removal
N/A Increase rate of automatic downfeed
N/A Decrease table rotation speed
N/A Dress more frequently
N/A Reduce area of table load (if more than one piece is being ground, or step grind)
N/A Check coolant for maximum specification
Segment acting too soft
Changing segments too frequently
N/A Decrease rate of automatic downfeed
N/A Increase table rotation speed
N/A Check for abnormal machine vibration caused by improper mounting of segments or excessive build-up of sludge on inside of segment holder
N/A Use harder segment specification
