Grinding Technology

The industrial application of conventional grinding processes as for example cylindrical grinding, surface grinding, profile grinding, tool grinding or tooth flank grinding are still widely spread. Especially in machining hard materials or if high requirements in terms of dimensional, shape and positional accuracy as well as surface quality, grinding usually provides the technically and economically most suitable solution. The IWF is intensively focusing on the fundamental research of grinding processes. Thereby a wide range of process variants is covered:

  • Cylindrical, surface and profile grinding
  • Gear grinding
  • Tool grinding
  • Five-axis grinding
  • Rail grinding
  • Double face grinding with planetary kinematics

The superior goal of every research project that is realized by the group “grinding technology” at the IWF of TU Berlin is the profound understanding of the cause-effect relationships during the grinding processes. Therefore modern and partially prototypical machine systems are used such that the research work can surpass present state of the art. Besides the development of new process and dressing strategies and the process optimization, the research also focuses on the analysis, characterization and optimization of innovative grinding wheel specifications as well as the machining of hard-to-machine materials.

Through the close cooperation with the Fraunhofer-Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology IPK the results of fundamental research can be applied to industrial applications quickly and effectively. Further information can be found here
