Grinding of tool ceramics introduces microcracks and stresses into the surface layers. The intensity of the surface damage depends on the material removal mechanism in grinding. Especially very small surface damages influence the function of tool ceramics. Therefore nondestructive testing methods with high resolution and high reliability are needed.
