Electrolytic In-Process Grinding (ELID) is an advanced grinding process that carries out in situ dressing of the grinding wheel using an electrochemical reaction, i.e. anodic dissolution. This process is targeted to achieve the final finished product by eliminating subsequent finishing processes such as polishing and lapping. The process mainly aims for hard and brittle materials to achieve ductile mode cutting with the best cutting parameters, and by doing so to achieve the nano-level surface finish. The typical grinding particle size of the ELID grinding wheel varies from 1 to 5 μm. A characteristic ELID wheel is metal bonded which is used as an anode. There is another electrode which usually used as the cathode, and a liquid is flown between the anode and the cathode, which functions both as grinding fluid and electrolyte. A DC pulsed power supply is generally used as the power source for the electrolytic in-process dressing of the grinding wheel. This chapter will shed light on the history, fundamental and the current status of the ELID grinding related researches.
