Ceramic Engineering Book
from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Ceramic Grinding and Polishing
edited by Ioan Marinescu,
Hans Tonshoff
and Ichiro Inasaki

This book explains the properties and characteristics of ceramics, the various types of abrasive processes, and typical tests used in the procedures. It also contains an entire section on grinding tools, their conditioning, lubrication, and cooling, checking for wear on the tools, and using them efficiently.

The book also examines modern honing and superfinishing tools and machines, and describes advances in the technology, as well as lapping and polishing techniques using chemical compounds and ultrasound.

Handbook of Ceramic Grinding and Polishing is essential for those in ceramic machining technology, manufacturing engineers, product designers, scientists, research and development teams, academic researchers, technicians, and machine operators.

Features:

  • Improving grinding and polishing technologies to cut costs and expand productivity
  • Emerging experimental grinding and polishing techniques and processes
  • Summaries of advanced theories on stock removal mechanisms
  • Complete descriptions of tools, machine tools, lubrication, and fixtures for each machining operation
  • Technical guidelines for checking and maintaining tools
