Paper Title:
A Study of Carbon Nanotubes as Cutting Grains for Nano Machining
  Abstract

We propose to use nano structures directly to fully utilize the nice mechanical and thermal properties for nano machining. In this project, CNTs were directly used as cutting grains. For the CNT grains, we use epoxy as one of the bonding materials of our choice. A series of CNT grinding wheels were fabricated to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed new type of abrasive tool. Preliminary experimental tests were conducted for the proposed method of abrasive tool making. The CNT wheels are made of 1% MWCNTs or Multi Wall CNTs. Preliminary test results show that CNT wheels without functionalization or chemical treatment give the best average results. In the developed abrasive tool, CNT nano cutting edges are clearly seen in the TEM image. Carbon nanotubes can be used as cutting grains for nano machining. Further experiments are necessary.
