  8. A Cryogenic Grinding System for the High Productivity Grinding of Advanced Materials

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DLA09001

    High performance metals, ceramics, and hard coatings are used in military applications to enhance the performance of key systems needed by the warfighter. One of the most prevalent operations to remove material, achieve the desired surface finish, or enhance part quality is bulk and finish grinding. For typical cutting speeds, conventional synthetic or oil-based coolants are sufficient to remove ...
