International Grinding Centre

The MCR has developed an International Grinding Centre (IGC) with the goal to support the demand identified by Swedish end users for capability in grinding technology. The focus has been on the development of a recognised international network, research and professional education.

Core research topics:

• Materials and grindability
• Quality aspects (e.g. metrology)
• Process aspects (e.g. grinding, dressing, cooling)

The IGC facilitates industry-wide collaboration, exchanges best practices and advances research. It comprises members which cover the entire technology value-chain – end users, wheel and abrasive manufacturers, machine-tool builders and competence providers:

3M, Accretech, Advanced Finishing Technology, Chalmers, Element Six, Husqvarna, International Grinding Institute, IWF ETH Zürich, Kistler Nordic, KSF Hochschule Furtwangen, KTH DMMS, Lundin Stress Service, Meister Abrasives, Ovako Sweden, Powertrain Engineering Sweden, Quaker Houghton, Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Sandvik Coromant, Scania, Seco Tools, SKF, Svenska Transorfilter, Tyrolit, United Grinding, UVA Lidköping, Volvo Group
