Carbides of transition metals in abrasive machining (Review)

  • A. A. Adamovskii
Exchange of Experience


This paper reviews works on the use of transition-metal carbides and presents results of the author’s own research on the abrasive machining of mechanical engineering materials. It is established that the properties of abrasive grains are primarily controlled by the abrasive nature and production process. It is shown that carbides of transition metals are efficient for use in abrasive tools (grinding disks, pastes for processing mechanical engineering parts from various materials).
