Development of High Performance Monolayer Brazed Diamond Grinding Tool for Ceramics


Article Preview

This study has developed a new kind of high performance monolayer brazed diamond tool for ceramic grinding. The grit size of the diamond brazed in the grinding wheel surface is 300m, which has never been reported in diamond tools for ceramic precision machining. The experiment has achieved wonderful surface finish of Zirconia workpiece. This does owe to the designed and precision conditioned topography of the new developed grinding wheel. The topography of the grinding wheel before and after dressing has been measured by means of laser triangulation method. Then the Zirconia workpiece has been ground. The obtained Ra value decreases with no spark grinding times and the minimum Ra of the ground surface is 0.11m. The study proved that the brazed large grit diamond tools would realize high efficiency and precision grinding, namely, high performance of ceramic grinding.
