Abstract: Grinding with super-abrasive wheels is an excellent way to produce ultra precision surface finish. Truing and dressing of the wheels are major problems, and they tend to glaze because of wheel loading. Electrolytic in-Process Dressing (ELID) is the most suitable process for dressing metal-bonded grinding wheels during the grinding process. Nano-surface finish can be achieved only when chip removal is done at the atomic level. ELID is one of the processes used for atomic-level metal removal and nano-surface finish. Consequently, an attempt has been made to understand the fundamental characteristics of ELID grinding and their influence on surface finish.
