The advancement of miniaturization technology requires complex and intricate manufacturing techniques. The literature review in this thesis has shown that the grinding process is the most suitable technique to produce ceramic micro-cylindrical components. However, several problems are associated with ceramic micro-shaft grinding. The major limitation is the proness to breakage of the micro-parts and ceramic is a difficult to machine materials. The requirements of small depth of cut, minimum grinding forces and vibration have to be achieved throughout grinding process.
