· Grinding, also called surface grinding, is a machining operation in which material is removed using a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, etc. to realize fine finish tolerances and surface finishes. While there are a number of ways to grind parts, grinding is a more precise method of tolerance modifiion.
· This process is known as Dressing of grinding wheel and the whole process takes 15 to 20 minutes to operate. The life of the grinding wheel is described as the time period between two successive dressings. Grinding operation is one of the machining processes which consume the highest specific cutting energy with very less material removal rate.
