Grinding Basics Seminar | Norton Abrasives

Grinding Basics Seminar

Grinding is a manufacturing process which belongs according to DIN 8580 to the abrasive machining processes. The tools used have – in contrast to turning, milling and drilling tools – geometrically undefined cutting edges. Typical abrasives are corundum (Al2O3), silicon carbide (SiC), cubic crystalline boron nitride (cBN) or diamond (C).

The aim of the seminar is to improve the fundamental understanding of the grinding process which enables you to respond more effectively to day-to-day challenges in grinding applications. The seminar will cover a broad range of subjects, starting with grinding and dressing tools, their build-up, grinding and dressing, process optimisation and cooling conditions that support an economic grinding process.

The seminar is taking place at Saint-Gobain's Grinding Technology Centre EUROPE which is the focus of all local research and development activities for the optimisation of tools and grinding processes.
