Abrasives: New Uses

$720.00

Overview

Whilst some abrasive materials and the designs of their tools are well established, there exist many drivers for further development and expansion of the industry. For example, the emergence of new workpiece materials requires the specification and development of suitable abrasives and their tools.

Description

The review is based on two types of research. Firstly, a study of patent activity for abrasive materials and tools provides an overview of companies most active in abrasives-related intellectual property and the current subject areas of development. Secondly, a summary of university research related to abrasive materials and tools provides an insight into possible future areas of materials and applications development.

The ‘technical developments’ sections discuss both patent activity and university research on each of the material and tool types, and include maps of the various application areas.
