The subcontractor's third-generation managing director, Andrew Churchill, explained, "The VIPER process, based on a 5-axis machining centre platform, is accepted as the most cost-effective way of creep-feed grinding nickel alloys for hot-end gas turbine components in aHow it Works – Don’t Call it “Grinding” | Today’s,,Creep feed grinding takes it to a whole new level by combining the higher stock removal operation with a finishing capability, all at once,” said Ken Kummer, CEO at Abrasive Form, Inc., Bloomingdale, Ill., a machine shop specializing in creep feed grinding. What’s in a name? So why, with all these advantages, isn’t everyone using it?Hybrid processes in manufacturing - ScienceDirect,Another important media-assisted grinding process is the so-called Viper-Grinding (very impressive performance extreme removal grinding) as a replacement for creep feed grinding of nickel-based alloys using CBN wheels. High-pressure coolant is employed, both through the spindle and via a programmable coolant nozzle.
