    Research output: Contribution to journalReviewpeer-review


    Jig grinding is a process practically used by tool and die makers in the creation of jigs or mating holes and pegs on dies.The abrasives normally used in jig grinding are divided into Natural Abrasives and Artificial Abrasives. Artificial Abrasiveare preferred in manufacturing of grinding wheels in jig grinding, because of their uniformity and purity. In this paper, abrief review of the analysis of jig grinding process considering various research trends is presented. The areas highlighted are: optimization, selection of abrasives, selection of processing conditions and practical considerations. The optimization of parameters in jig grinding process is important to maximize productivity and to improve quality. The abrasives of hard jig grinding wheels get blunt quickly so these are recommended to grind workpiece of low hardness and soft grinding wheels are recommended for hard material workpieces. The jig grinding is also classified into rough grinding and precision grinding, based on the processing conditions. The jig grinding process is also adapted for avariety of practical applications and for different materials.
