Microgrinding is a process with increasing importance especially in the area of manufacturing nanostructured surfaces. Microgrinding involves the machining of engineering materials using abrasive particles that are bonded in a matrix interspersed with induced and naturally occurring porosity. The development of bonded microgrinding tools is steadily gaining importance in addition to the development of grinding processes with loosely bonded and unbonded abrasive medium. The call for papers on microgrinding for this special issue is a reflection of the importance of this manufacturing process.
