The development of grinding wheels that are capable of improving the grinding accuracy and the finished surface roughness via the grinding process is increasingly sought in industries. The refinement of grinding wheels comprising abrasive grains is an effective means of improving the ground surface quality. The general methods used for fabricating grinding wheels tend to facilitate the aggregation of fine abrasive grains, resulting in poor abrasive distribution. Therefore, we focused on the electro-spinning mode of Patterning with Electrostatically Injected Droplet (PELID), which is capable of forming micro resin fibers. Subsequently, we attempted to fabricate fibrous grinding wheels containing abrasive grains by using the twin nozzle PELID technique that applies this mode. We confirmed through experiments that resin fibers containing abrasive grains can be manufactured efficiently using PELID and succeeded in manufacturing fibrous grinding wheels containing abrasive grains.
