Microcrystalline aluminium oxide as grit material for grinding processes is able to close the gap, regarding the material removal rate and the tool life, between the conventional fused aluminium oxide and the cubic boron nitride. The wear behavior differs in terms of the structure of microcrystalline aluminium oxide compared with the macrocrystalline form of fused aluminium oxide. Tests have revealed that the advantages of microcrystalline aluminium oxide are related to the load to which the single grain is exposed. Consequently, further investigations will be required to define the operational conditions for optimal grinding. Authors: F. Klocke, N. Muller, R. Engelhorn, Technical University of Aachen, Aachen, Germany.
