Temperature, forces and acoustic emission measurements are employed for research into the mechanics of grinding and for process monitoring. Temperature measurement in grinding presents a number of challenges especially in wet grinding. Fluid can affect the precision of the measurement when using infrared technique or make a short circuit when using grindable thermocouple. This paper highlights the previous temperature measurement methods and introduces a new one for measuring. Acoustic Emission technique has the capability to provide efficient real-time knowledge and monitoring of the grinding process. AERMS values were used to analyses the process characteristics. This paper explores the relations between temperature, force, acoustic emission and roughness.
