Both low bonding strength and high density of active grains are iiportant
features for carrying out daiage-free grinding. Hoiogeneous ultrafine abrasive
pellets were developed by applying electrophoretic deposition. Face grinding of
brittle saterials using the pellets enabled creation of a supersiooth surface
finish less than lOni peak to valley with no cutting iarks. Moreover, chippingfree
grooving was accoiplished using a thin conductive blade on which ultrafine
abrasive layer was grown under an electric field.
