A special issue of International Journal of Abrasive Technology
In the past ten years, advances have been made in the development of grinding wheels for removing difficult-to-machine materials used in the aerospace, automotive, electronic, semiconductor processing, and tooling industries. Recent developments in grinding wheel technology in recent years include the development of laser dressable grinding wheels, high efficiency deep grinding wheels, creep feed grinding wheels for grinding automotive materials, very high speed grinding wheels, micro and nanogrinding wheels and tools, high porosity grinding wheels, coated grinding wheels, abrasive grain engineering, controlled stress grinding wheels and adaptive grinding wheels.
Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to publish the current state-of-the-art in grinding wheel technology and to provide a forum for developing the future requirements of grinding wheels and tools.
The subject coverage of this special issue includes, but is not limited to, topics that address:
- Fundamental research and developments on grinding wheels and their materials
- Applied research and developments on grinding wheels
- Applications of fundamental and applied research on grinding wheels in the aerospace, automotive, electronic, micro and nanoengineering, and tooling industries
- Emerging fields of micro and nanogrinding wheels and tools
