Ceramics are finding widespread application in the fabrication of several components for engineering applications, because of the low cost of the raw material and the attractive properties associated with them. This paper investigates the application of rotary ultrasonic grinding for grinding of ceramic substrates (canasite) for computer hard disks. This process exhibits increased machining aggressiveness compared to the existing machining methods employed.
