Grinding machine usage and precautions

Grinding machine usage and precautions

1. After the power is turned on, it can be used only after the grinding wheel is running normally. Be sure to hold the grinder while touching the work piece slowly. Do not allow impact and violent pressure. Use the front of the wheel and prohibit the side of the wheel. During work, you must bring the necessary protective equipment. Workers are not allowed to face the grinding wheel, they must stand on the side.

2. Before use, you must carefully check whether the screws of each part are loose, whether the grinding wheel is cracked, and whether the metal shell and the power cord are leaked. If there are any of the above-mentioned disadvantages, they must be repaired before use.

3. The rotating grinder is not allowed to be placed on the ground at will. After the wheel is stopped, it should be placed in the designated place. When temporarily not in use, you must close the power switch and cut off the power supply.

4. The electric hand grinding wheel must have a solid protective cover and a good grounding wire, otherwise it is forbidden to use.

5. When it is used, the idling test must be carried out first, and the operation can be carried out when there is no problem.

6. When it is found that the power cord is tangled and knotted, be patient to untie it. Do not pull the wire or the grinding wheel forcibly.

7. When changing the grinding wheel, carefully check the grinding wheel for cracks or defects, and cooperate appropriately. Use a wrench to tighten the nut.

8. The electric grinder should have a special person responsible for regular maintenance.

9. The grinder should be stored in a dry place, and it is strictly prohibited to put it in water and damp places.

Safety technical requirements for the use of grinders

The grinder is one of the most commonly used machinery equipment in machinery factories, and it may be used in various types of work. Grinding wheels are brittle and fragile, with high speed and frequent use, which can easily hurt people. Whether its installation location is fair, whether it meets safety requirements, whether it is used correctly, and whether it complies with safety operation regulations, these requirements are directly related to the personal safety of each employee, so in actual use, we must cause enough Value.

1. Positioning requirements

The installation position of the grinder is our first consideration. Only when a reasonable and suitable location is selected, can we carry out other tasks. It is forbidden to install the grinder in the place facing the surrounding equipment and the operating staff or frequent people. The larger workshop should be equipped with a dedicated grinder room. If the dedicated grinding wheel machine room cannot be set due to the limitation of the topography of the plant, a protective baffle with a height of not less than 1.8 meters should be installed on the front of the grinder, and the baffle must be firm and effective.

2. Balance requirements

The unbalance of the grinding wheel is mainly caused by the improper manufacture and installation of the grinding wheel, so that the center of gravity of the grinding wheel does not coincide with the rotary shaft. The harm caused by unbalance is mainly manifested in two aspects. On the one hand, when the grinding wheel rotates at high speed, it causes vibration, which is easy to cause polygonal vibration marks on the surface of the workpiece; on the other hand, unbalance accelerates the vibration of the main shaft and the wear of the bearing. Will cause the grinding wheel to rupture and even cause an accident. Therefore, it is required that the grinding wheel with a diameter greater than or equal to 200 mm should be statically balanced after being installed on the flange. After the grinding wheel is reshaped or found to be unbalanced during work, the static balance should be repeated.

3. Matching requirements

Matching requirements mainly refer to the matching requirements for the installation of chucks and grinding wheels. According to the standard requirements, the diameter of the grinding wheel flange should not be less than 1/3 of the diameter of the installed grinding wheel, and it should be stipulated that when the grinding wheel is worn to a diameter larger than the flange diameter by 10 mm, a new grinding wheel should be replaced. In this way, there is a matching requirement between the flange and the grinding wheel, otherwise there will be such a situation that the “large horse-drawn cart” causes a waste of equipment and materials; the “small horse-drawn cart” does not meet the safety requirements and is easy to cause personal accidents. Therefore, the fair matching of the flange and the grinding wheel can save materials on the one hand and meet the requirements of safe operation on the other hand. In addition, a soft pad with a diameter larger than the chuck diameter of 2 mm and a thickness of 1 mm to 2 mm should be installed between the grinding wheel and the flange.

4. Protection requirements

The protective cover is the main protective device of the grinder. Its function is: when the grinding wheel is damaged during work, it can effectively cover the fragments of the grinding wheel to ensure the safety of the staff. The shape of the wheel guard is round and square, and the maximum opening angle does not allow to exceed 90 degrees; the material of the guard is steel with a tensile strength of not less than 415 Newtons per square millimeter. When replacing a new grinding wheel, the protective cover must be firmly and reliably installed, and the protective cover must not be disassembled or discarded at will.

The chip screen is one of the main protective accessories of the grinder. This device must be installed when the opening of the protective cover is greater than or equal to 30 degrees above the horizontal plane of the main shaft. Its main function is to block flying debris in the grinding process, so as not to hurt the operating staff. It is installed at the positive end of the protective cover opening, the width should be greater than the width of the grinding wheel protective cover, and should be firmly fixed on the protective cover. In addition, the clearance between the circumferential surface of the grinding wheel and the baffle should be less than 6 mm.

5. Bracket requirements

The bracket is one of the commonly used accessories of the grinder. According to the regulations, the grinder with a diameter of more than 150 mm must be provided with an adjustable bracket. The distance between the grinding wheel and the bracket should be less than 1/2 of the minimum external dimension of the workpiece to be ground, and the maximum should not exceed 3 mm.

6. Grounding requirements

Grinding machines use power lines, so the shell of the equipment must have a good grounding protection device. Poor grounding is also one of the important factors prone to accidents.

Matters needing attention when using grinder

1. What to pay attention to during use

Side grinding requirements: In the daily use of grinders, we can often find that some operators arbitrarily grind the sides of the grinding wheels regardless of the type of grinder and grinding wheel, which is a serious violation of safety operation regulations. Manipulation behavior. According to the regulations, the grinding wheel with the circumferential surface as the working surface should not be used for grinding. The radial strength of this grinding wheel is large, and the axial strength is very small. When the operator exerts too much force, the grinding wheel will break and even hurt people. This behavior should be prohibited during use.

Frontal manipulation requirements: In daily use, many operators are always used to manipulating the grinding wheel, because they can work hard in this direction. This kind of behavior is particularly prohibited in the operation of the grinding machine. According to the operation rules, when grinding a workpiece with a grinder, the operator should stand on the side of the grinding wheel, and should not operate on the front of the grinding wheel, otherwise the grinding wheel may fly out or the grinding wheel may break and hurt people when the grinding wheel fails. Forced operation requirements? When using grinders, some operators, especially young ones, use excessive force and excessive force in order to speed up the grinding. This is an extremely unsafe operation. Any grinding wheel has a certain strength. Doing so may cause the grinding wheel to break or even fly out to hurt people. This is also an act that should be prohibited.

Common operation requirements: In the actual daily operation, such a situation also occurs. Some people share the same grinder for simultaneous production tasks and working hours. This is a serious illegal operation and should be strictly prohibited. . When a grinder is not enough, it can be solved by adding a grinder, and it is not allowed to share a grinder at the same time.

2. Matters needing attention in the process of replacing the grinding wheel

Wear requirements: Any grinding wheel has its certain wear requirements. When the wear condition reaches a certain level, a new grinding wheel must be replaced. It can’t be used for super wear to save materials, this is an extremely unsafe violation. It is generally stipulated that when the grinding wheel is worn to a diameter 10 mm larger than the diameter of the flange, a new grinding wheel should be replaced.

Validity requirement: The new grinding wheel received from the warehouse is not necessarily a qualified grinding wheel, and even the new grinding wheel purchased from the manufacturer is not necessarily a qualified grinding wheel. Any grinding wheel has a certain period of validity. If it is used within the period of validity, it is a qualified wheel; if it is used beyond the period of validity, it is not necessarily a qualified wheel. The regulation stipulates that “the grinding wheel should be used within the validity period, and the resin and rubber bond grinding wheel must be subjected to a rotation test after one year of storage, and the qualified one can be used”

Texture requirements: In the course of use, if local cracks are found in the grinding wheel, they should be stopped immediately and replaced with new ones to avoid accidents caused by the grinding wheel breaking.

3. Other requirements that should be noted

Environmental requirements: The grinder should generally be equipped with a dedicated grinder room, and it is strictly forbidden to stack flammable and explosive items around the grinder room or the grinder to avoid fire or explosion accidents, and no other items should be placed around the grinder.

Governance requirements: The grinder should have a special person in charge. Anyone who does not want to grind the workpiece on the grinder must obtain the permission of the full-time person in charge and strictly abide by the safety operation regulations. It is strictly forbidden to use the grinder without the consent of the responsible employee. . In addition, the replacement of the grinding wheel should also be the responsibility of a dedicated person. It is forbidden for others to replace or install the grinding wheel without permission.

Shutdown requirements: The operator should shut down the vehicle immediately after stopping work. It is forbidden that the grinder is idling without use or management. In addition, the grinder should be kept clean after use.
The above are some points that should be paid attention to in the process of using the grinder. I hope it will be helpful to the users of the grinder. The safe use of grinders is an important part of the safety of factory equipment, and should be highly watched by the installation and use staff.
