This paper presents the analysis of mechanisms of removal in vibration-assisted grinding process. It is known that generally for machining, application of vibration helps to increase material removal rate, reduces tool wear rate and increases depth of machining. As the failure of a component originates from the surface, effect of assisted grinding is carried out on a milling machine. The machine is equipped with a grinding wheel on which small frequency vibrations are applied. The resultant path of the tool is analytically evaluated. Longitudinal vibrations are developed by using a rotary mechanism. It was demonstrated that there are several favorable effects of vibrations in grinding process including: reduced tool forces, better surface finish and improved tool life. It is observed that the application of vibrations improve the process characteristics in grinding, to a large extent.
