A new segmented grinding wheel of the brazed monolayer diamond was developed with a defined grains pattern on the wheel surface. Results of grinding zirconia using brazed segmented diamond wheel were presented. The experiment results showed that the grinding forces ratio becomes higher with the increasing of the specific material removal rate and the specific energy falls with the increasing of the maximum undeformed chip thickness during grinding zirconia process. In this investigation, brazed diamond wheels with defined distribution patterns was conditioned by touch-dressing method so that grit tips get micro-conditioned and allow the underlying grits to participate and consequently improve the quality of finish. All the ground surfaces of zirconia were generated by the combined removal modes of brittle and ductile.
