In this paper, the micro-scale grinding processes of titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) using electro-hydro-dynamic (EHD) spray with nanofluid and compressed air are experimentally investigated. In the experiments, specific micro-grinding forces and surface roughness of the ground workpiece are quantitatively analyzed as a function of nanofluid’s concentration and size of nanoparticles. In addition, the ground surface quality is qualitatively investigated by comparing the optical microscopic images. The experimental results show the effectiveness of EHD spraying with nanofluid and compressed air for reducing the specific micro-grinding forces and enhancing ground surface quality.
