Micro grinding

What is Microgrinding?

The microgrinding technique uses a dicing saw in grinding mode, fitted with a thicker blade e.g. 5mm resin bond. The blade traverses the substrate without lifting the Z carriage.

Materials & components processed

Microgrinding is commonly used for reducing the dimensional thickness of a substrate. This technique is used for producing target resonant frequencies of sonar and ultrasound arrays.

Ceramics, PZT composites, metals.
