Paper Abstract

There is no doubt that the industry has benefited greatly from the introduction of diamonds for grinding and smoothing processes. In many cases, as a result of this, the use of abrasives has almost disappeared. The use of diamond impregnated crowns and impregnated pellets as a means of both fast stock removal and final smoothing before polishing, are common throughout the world. This paper sets out to describe new developments that depart from the normally accepted practice - the use of a spherical generator as a smoothing machine. A number of terms have been used to describe this method of operation: Fine milling, ring tool smoothing, one shot milling, ring tool diamond fining, and one shot generation, have all been used in various parts of the world to distinguish this type of working. This operation has been referred to as "ring tool smoothing" throughout this paper.
