Summary

Effective production of ceramic components requires improved understanding of the mechanisms of grinding such materials with manufactured diamond abrasives. A systematic approach involves workpieces, machines, wheels, and the diamond abrasive itself. Existing knowledge of key variables in these systems is reviewed, and paths for improved understanding are charted.
