The grindability of fine-ceramics is the most important information in order to determine the optimum grinding conditions and dressing intervals. This study proposed the method of grindability evaluation of fine-ceramics by using removal rate in constant pressure grinding. The grindability evaluation is based on the change of removal rate accompanied by the increase in stock removal. As a result, the grindability could be evaluated quantitatively by using the change ratio of the removal rate on the basis of primary removal rate.
