Manufacturing processes have to become more sustainable. For grinding processes, this means that tool wear and performance need to be critically evaluated in their economic, environmental, and social impact. Tool wear affects several stakeholders. Different wear mechanisms on the grit and bond level lead to a change in tool profile and sharpness. For the user, wear changes tool costs, process stability, and maybe worker safety. Tool manufacturers need tool wear to sell replacements, whereas tool users might not like the higher waste and costs from tool wear but need tool self-sharpening.
