Production engineering faces the challenge to satisfy the increasing industrial demand for higher productivity and high requirements on workpiece quality at the same time. Furthermore, the rising environmental awareness adds additional constraints. Especially grinding processes have high relevance for industrial applications because they generate high quality surfaces and they are most effective for hard-to-machine materials. New technologies like speed-stroke grinding and high cutting speeds enable higher productivity. However, to be competitive to conventional grinding operations energy aspects have to be regarded thoroughly. This work shows how the combination of speed-stroke grinding and high speed machining can boost process performance, workpiece quality and process sustainability.
