Grinding wheel corner wear plays a very significant role in certain cylindrical plunge grinding operations in which the corner radius is critical. The corner wear affects the tolerance specified on the plunged corner radius on the component. Monitoring of corner wear is essential to know when exactly the tolerance zone has been crossed. This paper deals with the nature and geometry of corner wear and its monitoring using the fluctuations in the airflow velocity around the grinding wheel.
