Subproject B09

Geometrical Structuring of Component Surfaces by Micro Grinding

The aim of the subproject is to investigate the influence of the manufacturing parameters of  micro pencil grinding tools on their process behavior. Micro grinding is a process that offers high potential when machin-ing complex microstructures in hard and brittle materials with small structure sizes and high structure quali-ties. In this subproject the influence of metal working fluids, the coating method, the substrate geometry and tool specifications on the material removal mechanism will be analyzed when micro grinding hardened 16MnCr5 steel as well as quartz glass with micro pencil grinding tools.
