Therefore the contact pressure force for hardened steels increases with bal,izing Ballizing force. Copy the following to cite this URL: The ball displaces metal by plastic flow leaving a layer of denser metal on the ID wall.

A ballizing tool consists of one or more over-sized balls that are pushed through a hole. E is the experimental error and the b values are ballizung of the b parameters. It is a metal-displacement process, in which an oversize ball is pushed through an undersize hole.

Ballizing process

Because ballizing uses only a precision ball for sizing and finishing, and not a complex tool assembly, small holes often are easier to ballize than to grind, hone, or roller burnish. This helps to flatten the high spots by allowing plastic How of the metal. When radius of Ballizing tool is increased and the force remains constant, the contact area increases and contact pressure force is diminished. The microstructure examination shows that there is an elongation in the grain balliing the surface of the burnished work piece.


Surface pricess represented by Ra proved to be improved by the process to an optimum speed, feed and clearance. The surface roughness decreases with increase in feed rate, BALLIZING speed, force, and number of tool passes, to a certain limit, then it starts to increase with each of the above-mentioned parameters.

This compares favorably to most reaming and grinding operations.

The explanation is that the relationship between the contact area and the force is near linear for these materials, and therefore the contact pressure as a ratio of force to area is practically constant. Gillespie has a year history with precision part production It has been proven that super finishing procesa parts makes them more durable.

It is simultaneously rotated and pressed into the workpiece. The balls must be more hard than 65 Rc. In grinding, since the abrasive grains are randomly oriented and some are not sharp, there is always some amount of BALLIZING,This is one reason the grinding is less efficient and generates more heat than turning.

Therefore this process is accepted as a practice to harden only the surface layer by means of mechanical working of metals. This pressure is calculated by the pressure equations given below: That is because according our assumptions procdss friction force, the feed force and other interference forces are neglected in model.

In the case of hard metals for example hardened steels the significant elasticity causes the contact procesd to increase more slowly than the force. Advantages and Applications of Evaluation of Different Forces for Ballizing Process Common Applications Include Steering rack components, transmission components, fuel injector components, camshaft lobes, hydraulic cylinder rods, bearing races, needle rollers, and sharpening stones and wheels.


This paper is an attempt towards comparing experimental and theoretically results of forces obtained by varying interference. The heat generated at the deformation zone and friction zones over heats the tool and the work pieces Any standard grade, light weight, low-viscosity lubricating oil or any mineral, sulfur or soluble oil compatible with the metal or alloy to be burnished, is suitable for most metals.

The dependence of the contact pressure force upon the Ballizing force is not the same for hard and soft metals. Increasing part life, decreasing wear, closer tolerances, higher load bearing surfaces, better sealing capabilities, and bsllizing of a break in period. The workpiece may be at ambient temperature, or heated to reduce the forces and wear on the tool.

It has given very good results for bores ranging from 0.
