Grind to Finish: A Postprocessing Solution for Additive Manufacturing
3D printed metal parts typically feature little stock remaining for finishing. Grinding is potentially an effective solution for meeting final tolerances. An abrasive technology provider investigates grinding as a complement to AM.

Here is the typical problem with coolant in ID grinding. Nozzles have to send coolant into the small gap left open between the wheel and the part.

AM’s Assist to ID Grinding
An additively grown coolant nozzle enhanced the effectiveness of ID grinding. The success hints that additive and subtractive processes might be more complementary than we yet see.
