The first issue of International Journal of Abrasive Technology is now published.
Abrasive technology concerns the manufacturing processes that involve the use of abrasives in a variety of forms. It has a long history originating from the discovery of minerals. With the increasing requirements for the production of high precision and high surface quality components in various applications, such as silicon wafers in the semiconductor industry and optical lenses in the precision instrument industry, abrasive technology is becoming increasingly important in precision manufacturing.
This journal publishes peer-reviewed quality papers in the area of abrasive technology covering theoretical and applied research, new technologies and applications.
There is a free download of the papers from this issue.
