Cylindrical grinding : The cylindrical grinder can work on a variety of shapes; however the object must have a central axis of rotation. Cylindrical grinding is defined as having four essential actions 1. The work (object) must be constantly rotating 2. The grinding wheel must be constantly rotating 3.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
