Feasible and already widely practised! After grinding the journals must be free of cracks and
age-hardening!

Pre-condition: “Careful examination of material in the damaged area and its vicinity.”

Hardness test

The normal hardness of our shafts is between 205 HB and 235 HB. Age-hardening up to maximum of
350 HB is admissible!

If there are hardness spots caused by damage the difference in hardness must not exceed 10 HB/mm.
That means the measured difference in hardness of two points one 10 mm apart from the other must
not exceed 100 HB!

The fillets and the roundings of the oil bores must not show any age-hardenings!

Only if the result of the examination is clear and positive does “grinding down make sense!”

If there is the slightest doubt:


“Remove the crankshaft!”

Only a firm specializing in this field should be entrusted with the work.

Take u when “aligning” the grinder!

The grooves need not extend to the journal! (Hollowing out of the grooves and grinding of the journals
are two quite separate processes!)

The grinding usually takes place “in diameter stages of one millimetre”.

The after-sales department in the Kiel Main Works must be informed and consulted in &cases.
(Undersize stocks, vibration situation, max. degree of grinding etc..)
