Paper Abstract

Through single scratch experiments on glass, the transition from ductile to brittle mode grinding is analysed and the ductile regime dependent on load and coolant type is determined. The influence of different coolants on the grinding mode is discussed and certain manufacturing "tricks" used in the optical shop are explained. The results are verified by loose abrasive grinding experiments.
