For a conventional grinding wheel, information about wheel structure (open or dense) is readily available, and the wheel selection can be made accordingly for a specific condition. However, in micro grinding, there is no such a universal system as the wheels/pencil tools were developing indigenously. It makes difficulty in selecting the suitable micro grinding wheel/pencil tool for a specific requirement. Moreover, rapid wear of the micro grinding tool significantly effects the dimensional accuracy as well as the surface topography of component. In this situation, there is a need to study and predict the effect of different wheel topographies on the micro grinding process.
Selection of proper micro grinding tool and cutting conditions
Influence of variables on response
Information about wheel wear modes and mechanisms with different tool topographies in micro grinding
Prediction of channel surface roughness and dimensional accuracy variation with wheel wear
