Grinding of hard ceramic
Grinding of dental components

Part of the Month June 2016

Technology: grinding of hard ceramic (Zirconia - ZrO2)

Precision machining center:


  • Grinding of dental components
  • Study whether the material can be processed
  • Creation and optimization of the manufacturing process


  • Using metal-bonded diamond grinding pins
  • Optimal: use of inner coolant supply spindle and tools for deep contours
  • Optimization of the grinding strategy, in order to establish the dimensional accuracy of 0,01 – 0,04 mm at high productivity
  • Optional: use of molds, in order to increase productivity

Part size:

  • 8 mm
