Engineering a Next Generation Water-Based Grinding Fluid
There are few water-based fluids, on the market, designed specifically for grinding and abrasive machining processes. Fluid manufacturers, caught up in serving the “non-cutting” functions, have neglected the prime reasons for using a grinding fluid. This paper begins to assess water-based fluid chemistries and observe the cause and effect relationship with respect to grinding power and wheel life. The end result will be not only be a next generation grinding fluid, but also a better understanding of the role of the grinding fluid in a grinding or abrasive machining operation.
