Advances in Abrasive Technology VIII
This book presents a wealth of valuable up-to-date information for active researchers and engineers, and will certainly form a solid basis for any future research, in the field of abrasive technology, which is aimed at creating new and practical machine tools, systems and processes, or at identifying new characteristics.
The topics covered include advanced grinding technologies, grinding performance and mechanisms, cooling and truing/dressing of grinding wheels, de-burring and finishing, lapping and polishing, wafer processing and nano-processing. Within these topics, advances in cutting technologies and mechanisms, advanced machine tools and tooling, EDM, ECM and USM forming, and related novel technologies, inspection, and manufacturing technologies are also presented. In all, 115 papers are contributed from many different regions of the world; including Japan, China, Hong Kong (China), Korea, Australia, Russia, Germany, Ireland and the UK.
