Principles of Modern Grinding Technology book cover

Principles of Modern Grinding Technology

The book is aimed at practitioners, engineers, researchers, students and teachers. The approach is direct, concise and authoritative. Progressing through each major element of the grinding system and then on to machine developments and process control, the reader becomes aware of all aspects of operation and design. Trends are described demonstrating key features. Coverage includes abrasives and super-abrasives, wheel design, dressing technology, machine accuracy and productivity, grinding machine design, high-speed grinding technology, cost optimization, ultra-precision grinding, process control developments, vibration control, coolants and fluid delivery.

Industrial practitioners, engineers, researchers, students and teachers of manufacturing technology in general and grinding in particular; technicians
