 grinding grinding, process by which surface material is removed from an object, usually metal, by the abrasive action of a rotating wheel or a moving belt that contains abrasive grains.  wheels to clean cast components ranging in size from 1 to 1,000 lbs. The electroplated wheels can be operated safely at higher speeds than conventional wheels, which reduces the chip load on each abrasive abrasive, material used to grind, smooth, cut, or polish another substance. Natural abrasives include sand, pumice, corundum, and ground quartz. Carborundum (silicon carbide) and alumina (aluminum oxide) are important synthetically produced abrasives.  grain, reducing wear and extending the life of the wheel. The electroplated wheels also produce less dust, and the metal cores can be re-plated with fresh abrasives abrasives

Sharp, hard materials used to wear away the surface of softer, less resistant materials. Abrasives are indispensable to the manufacture of the highly precise components and ultrasmooth surfaces required in the manufacture of automobiles, airplanes and space
