The main aim of the project is to develop a highly efficient and reliable finishing process which makes it possible to custom-grind hard materials, in this case carbide metals and high-speed steel, using textured grinding wheels.

Through the texturing, the contact surfaces between the grinding tool and the workpiece is reduced, i.e. parts of the grinding granules and the grinding surface are removed before they are applied. The reduction of the contact surface and reduction of the dynamic cutting edge numbers leads to constant interruption of the contact, which in turn has a positive influence on the chip formation process.
