13 Claims.

This invention relates to new and useful improvements in abrasive articles and has particular'relation to abrasive cut-off wheels.

' Another object is to provide an improved abrasive rim member for an abrasive cut-oil wheel and an improved method of making the same.

A further object is to provide an abrasive cutoff wheel of the character set forth and including means whereby a worn rim member may be removed from the hub and replaced by a new rim member, all from the front side of the Wheel.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a consideration of the following detailed description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein satisfactory embodiments of the invention are shown. However, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to the details disclosed but includes all such variations and modifications as fall within the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claims.

Fig. 16 is a front elevational view of the hub of the wheel of Fig. 10.

Referring in detail to the drawing and at first more particularly to Figs. 1-7, the improved abrasive cut-off wheel there shown comprises essentially an outer rim member generally designated I0 and a hub member generally designated I I. Rim member I0 is shown as an abrasive annulus and has an annular outer periphery, although it could be differently shaped on its inner periphery. The rigid driving hub I I is preferably of a light Weight metal and has its outer peripheral portions shaped to correspond with the shape of the inner peripheral portions of rim member I0. As will hereinafter be set forth in detail, the rim member l0 is detachably mounted on the hub member II and is driven by the latter. With this construction, when a rim member wears ydown to the point where it is no longer of a diameter to be economically used, the worn rim member is removed from the hub member and replaced by a new full-sized rim member.

Rim member I0 is a laminated structure made up of a front layer and a rear layer. The front layercomprises a plurality of arcuate sections or elements I2 and I3 of an annulus while the rear layer consists of the arcuate sections or elements I4 and I5 of an annulus. In actual practise, rim I0 will, in many instances, be of relatively large outside diameter as, for example, a diameter of 36 inches or even more. Additionally, it is to be understood that the layers of the rim I0 may each comprise more than two segments and in fact, the rim may be made up of more than two layers.

The manufacture of a large diameter abrasive rim member by methods heretofore generally practised would involve the use of large and expensive equipment, not available to the smaller manufacturers of abrasive cut-off wheels. The present invention provides a method whereby the rim I0, of substantially any desired diameter, may be made without the necessity of the manufacturer providing himself with large expensive equipment. The rim I 0 resulting-from the practise of the above indicated novel method has many desired characteristics.

In manufacturing the rim member I0, I prepare the sections I2, I3, I4 and I5. Such sections are in the nature of strips curved edgewise so that each comprises approximately lk an annulus. The strips are of abrasive grain and a suitable bonding medium. The cure of the bond is generally determined by the use to which the abrasive cut-off wheel is t be put and thus the bond may be resinoid or rubber or of a combination of such materials.

In making the rim member, strips may be rolled out and the sections died therefrom. Then the sections I2 and I3 will be arranged with their adjacent ends slightly spaced as in Fig. 6y

but with their outer edges defining substantially a complete circle. Thereafter, the sections I4 and I5 are placed on the sections I2 and I3 in staggered relation with the latter but with the end portions of the sections I4 and I5A also slightly spaced.

In this assembly. a mid-portion of the section i5 will overlap the space between a pair of adjacent ends of the sections I2 and I3 whilea midportion of the section I4 will overlap the space between the other pairs of ends of the sections I2 and i3. Then the mid-portions of sections l2 and I3 span the spaces between the pairs of adjacent ends of the sections I4 and I5. This staggering of the sections of one layer with respect to those of the other layer provides a rim member in the form of an annulus having through its rear face a pair of radially extending channels I6 and Il extending from its inner through its cuter periphery. Additionally, in the rim member the spaces between the ends of the sections I2 and I3 of the front layer denne a pair of channels I8 and I9 through the front side of the rim member and extending from the inner periphery of the front layer to the outer periphery thereof.

rfhe layers of the rim may be assembled green or -prior to complete curing of the bonding medium although in a cured state they may be assembled with the use of proper adhesive. The layers Vare so assembled that their outer peripheries are substantially flush with one another. However, the sections i2 and I3 of the front layer are wider than are the sections I4 and I5 of the rear layer and thus the inner edges of the layers are not ush with one another. For example, in Fig. 5, the inner edge of the layer made up of sections Ill and I5 is of much smaller diameter than is the inner edge of the front layer made up of the sections I2 and I3. This results in the formation of a recess 29 of a depth equal to the thickness of one of the segments I4 or I5 and opening through the rear side of the rim member and through the inner peripheral edge thereof.

A series of short rigid studs 2I are rigidly attached to the portions of the front layer exposed through the recess 20. In a completed wheel, the mentioned portion of the frontlayer of the wheel is overlapped by the outer peripheral portion of the hub il, as will be set forth, and thus in a completed wheel the studs 2| are carried by a portion of the rim member which is overlapped by a portion of the driving hub member. These studs are not abrasive or do not comprise a mixture of abrasive grain and a bond but preferably are of metal or a hard tough resin suitably adhered to the defined portion of the rim member.

For a purpose to be described, one or more of the studs is provided with a reduced diameter portion which is adhered to the rim member whereby there is a spacebetween the outer portion of thestud and the rim member. In the wheel shown in Figs. 1-7, a pair of diametrically opposed studs, designated 22 and 23, have such reduced diameter portions whereby there are spaces or openings 2Q and 25, respectively, between larger oiameter heads of the studs and the rim member. The studs may be attached to the rim member either beioreor after final curing of the bond of the latter. Preferably, the studs are positioned while the sections of the rim are yet green and are placed in the curing chamber with the other elements of the rim. During the curing, the abrasive mix of the sections may shift or slightly shift the studs, but it is noted that if the holes (to be described) in the hub member are slightly oversize, accurate location of the studs is not too critical. A driving connection between the hub and rim members will be established as hereinafter described.

It will be understood that when the sections areassembied to form the rim member priorto nal curing of the bond, during the final cure, the sections of one layer will become bonded to those of the other layer. Thus, a substantially homogeneous structure is provided.

In this way, the bond between the sections 'of cnc layer and those of the other layer will-be 'of the strength of the bond securing the grain in piace and willhave an equal useful life. It will be understood that the final cure will depend upon the bond employed. For example, if the bond is of rubber it will contain sulphurY and other necessary ingredients and the rim member will be vulcanized. If thebond is resinoid. the rim member will be cured by a process [for accomplishing the desired cure.

The hub II includes a larger diameterportion 26 of a diameter tobe received in the recess 20 of the rim member and concentric with the sportion 26 includes a thicker portion 21 of smaller diameter. Here portion 2'I is shownasadisc formed separate from the portion 26 and the portions are secured together in any desired manner but in concentric relation Aso that an annular shoulder 28 is formed.

A shaft portion or stud 29.may.be formed with the hub portion 26 and portion 29 may be adapted to be held by a chuck or thelike or may -be other- Wise driven and, in fact, may be apermanent part of some driving mechanism.

Through the hub portion 26,. aseries of holes 3i) are formed. These holes will correspond in number with the number ofstuds 2|, 22 and 23 and are of diameters to receive such studs. In assembling the present wheel, yassuming that the hub II is part of a machine, the rim-member I3 is disposed at the forward side of the hub withY the studs of the rim member entering the openings 30 through the larger diameterportion 2S.

of the hub and wlth theY hub portion 21 being received within the inner periphery ofthe lforward layer of the rim member. lIt will be clear that the outer peripheral-portion or hub part 26 is received in the recess 20 of the rim'member.

With particular attention to Fig. 2, -it will be seen that the hub II is ofa thickness to be received between or within the planes-dencd'by the front and rear surfaces of the .rim member. Conveniently this 'is accomplished by having the larger diameter hub portion 26 of a thickness equal to or slightly less than that of the `rear layyer ofthe rim member and by having the smaller diameter hub portion 21 of "a thickness equal to or slightly less than that of the two layers of the rim member. With this construction, the wheel is adaptedto cut .through.a;work

piece of a diameter greater thanthe widthof the abrasive `wheel rim. This is true since the thin metal driving hub of the present wheel may enter into a cut made by its abrasive rim.

The hub carries means for cooperating with the undercuts of studs 22 and 23 in securing the rim member on the hub against vlateral movement relative thereto. In providing this means, recesses 3I and 32 are provided in the forward face of the hub portion 26. In these recesses are disposed keys 33 and 34- each comprising a flat metal piece having one end` fast to and pivotally mounted by a screw or other turnable pivoting element. In the drawing, key 33 is shown as fast with a screw 35 while the key 34 is shown as fast with a screw 36.

.These keys are rotatable relative to the other portions of the hub member I I and the keys being fast with the screws, it will be clear that as the screws are turned, the keys will be turned. These keys are so located that they may be turned from the released position of Fig. 7 to locking positions in which their free end portions pro- `iect to extend somewhat across a pair of the openings 30 as the pair 30a and 30h, respectively.

In the assembled wheel, the slotted or operating ends of the screws 35 and 36 are at the forward side of the wheel beingl in the thickened central portion 21 ofthe hub. Therefore the hub being mounted and the keys being positioned in the inoperative positions of Fig. 7, a rim membermay be disposed against theforward side of the hub. In doing this, care is taken to have the studs 22 and 23.enter the hub openings 30b and 33a, respectively. Now, through a suitable tool, the keys 33 and 34 are rotated or shifted through a slight increment so as to dispose their free end portions in the spaces or undercuts 25 and 24 associated with the studs 23 and 22, respectively. This entrance of the locking keys into the spaces or undercuts of the studs is fully illustrated in Figs. l-4.

The rim member being disposed on the hub and the keys having been turned to their locking relations with certain of the studs, it will be clear that lateral movement of the rim member from the hub is prevented. Additionally, the studs preferably have rather snug fits in the openings in the hub and serve to establish driving connections between the hub and the rim member. Attention isl directed to the fact that the keys 33 and 34 in their locking positions are in the positions to which they tend under centrifugal action when the wheel is being rotated. Further, it is noted that thestuds of the rim member need not have snug ts in the openings in the hub. If there is any relative turning, movement between the hub member and the rim member, one or more of the studs engages the side or sides of one or more of the openings and thereafter the members must rotate together.

When using the present wheel, the slots I6, I'I, I8 and I9 opening through the front and rear faces of the rim member and extending radially serve a purpose in that they provide for the carrying of a cooling medium directly into a cut being made. Where these Wheels operate in a flood'of coolant, as is commercially done with rubber bonded cut-off wheels, the mentioned channels will be filled with the coolant and as each channel successively moves into a cut during rotation of the wheel, coolant is carried into the cut. Sincev circumferentially the channels are alternatelyin opposite faces of the wheel,-it willbe .clear that-coolant willbe carried into the cut successively at alternate sides of the wheel. The formation of the rim members with the slots I6-I9 is a preferred construction. However, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited to such construction as many features of the invention are useful with rim members not provided with slots or other coolant carrying features.v f

It will also be understood that the sections being bonded together in the staggered overlapping relationship shown and described, and the .bond being generally effected in the final curing operation, the wheel is substantially' a homogeneous structure.Y Further, the sections of one layer overlapping the adjacent spaced pairs of ends of the sections of the other layer, there is a mutual bracing or reinforcing of the sections.

When these vcut-off wheels are in use they are rotated at high speeds and where the'wheels are of large diameters it will be clear that many linear feet of a wheel pass through a cut per minute of operation. As the wheels wear down, the mentioned passage of linear feet is naturally reduced and finally a point is reached where efficient operation on a particular job is not had. With the present large diameter hub the wheel is stiff and true running and the abrasive rim is entirely used up so there is no large Istub to be discarded.

With the present wheel, if eicient operation is no longer attained,the screws 35 and 36 are operated to turn-the keys to released position and the worn rim member is removed and is replaced by a' new rim member. The latteris secured in place merely by turning the keys back to locking positions with respect to the stud or studs carried by the rim member. In this connection it will be understood that an interlocking engagement of the key with one stud will prevent lateral separation of the rim member and hub, but generally it is preferred that one such structure be balanced by a similar structure at the diametrically opposite side of the hub. In fact, means may be provided by accomplishing a similar locking between the hub and each stud of a rim member. l

Referring now to the modification of Figs. 8 and 9, the wheel shown comprises an'abrasive rim member generally designated'40 and a driving hub member generally designated 4I. Rim member 40 may be constructed identical with the rim member I0 with the exception that the member 40, in its overlapped portion or in the inner peripheral portion of the sections of its front layer 42, is provided with internally threaded bushings 43. The desired number of these lbushings are employed and they are preferably molded into the material of the abrasive sections so as to be fast therewith.

Rim member 40 being of the construction of the rim member I0 with the exception that the member 40 mounts the bushings 43 rather than studs, it will be understood that the member 46 is made up of sections arranged to provide front and rear layers for a laminated wheel'structure." The ends of these sections-are slightly spaced whereby rim member 40 has the radially extending channels I6, II, IB and I9 exactly as in the rim member I0.

With this construction, the hub 4I may be of a single piece of material of two diameters having thus an annular shoulder 44 to be engaged by the inner periphery of the front layer 42 of the rim member 4I) and having a second and larger diameter shoulder 45- to be engaged by the nieuwe inneriperiphery-fof the zrearglayer--E d6, :of dahe rim member. '.Thus.. f itrwill becseenz` that .theficuter peripheral portion-nf thehub-JII. is .received fin aerecessfiofzthefrim memberf and 'which recess 41 .correspondsy exactly with'the-:recessie ofsthemim member; il).

In use, thewheel of Figs.v 8 andi) will .be-:einployed in the samemanner as the wheel AofsFigs. 1 7.

In this construction, two keys are entered in the space at the underside of the head of each stud. These keys enter such space at opposite sides of the stud. Since the two keys are used and located as described, the rim may not be tilted'to exert a pry action on a stud such as could be accomplished if but a single key was used in the -location shown. Additionally, it is noted that when the keys are in their locking positions (see Fig. 13) they are against the outer edges of the recesses or walls in which they are located. Therefore, centrifugal action during rotation of the wheel cannot throw the keys out -of their locking positions.

In all the structures shown the stiff metal hub member provides for a fiat stiff true running cutoff wheel of large effective diameter. The present wheel does not run out of true as may happen with larger diameter thin wheels wholly of an abrasive mix. Further, with the headed studs employed in Figs. l-7 and 10-16, they need only be located as there is an annular space about the reduced diameter portion into which a key or keys may enter.

The rim members of the various forms herein are specifically sho-wn as annuluses. However, the inner peripheral edges of the layers of the various rim members could be other than true circles, as ovals or as having angularly related edge portions.'V 'In any such instance, the hub member would or could have correspondingly shaped edge portions.
