Abstract

Grinding and machine tool machining are seperated by a gap in technological knowledge. This project investigated the gap between the two areas in a functional comparison. The two methods were found to be comparable with regards to hard materials and high precision. The difference in price was accounted for by production volume. Grinding may find a way to keep a competitive edge in the marketplace if a common ground for function and performance provide for cheaper parts in the industry.
