Optimization of a Grinding Process and Criteria for Wheel Life

  • G. Trmal
  • H. Kaliszer


The need for a more rational approach in determining the required grinding conditions and selecting suitable grinding wheels is becoming more and more urgent. In most other machining processes various optimizing techniques are already widely used to establish the best cutting conditions. One of the reasons that the grinding process still remains more of an art than a science is the difficulty of determining one of the basic wheel parameters—the wheel life.
