The grindability of Ti(C,N)-MoaC-Ni alloy was studied by using reginoid-bonded and nickel plated wheels with two kinds of diamond powders (single crystallike and polycrystallike) and single grit cutter. The TiC-Mo2C-Ni and WC- Co alloys were also tested for comparison. The binder content of those alloys was kept at 16.4 vol%. It was found that the grindability was excellent in the following order; WC-Co, TiC-Mo2C-Ni and Ti(C,N)-Mo2C-Ni alloys. It was also found that the wear of diamond in cases of nickel plated wheel and single grit cutter was most marked for Ti(C,N) base alloy; explaining the lowest grindability of the alloy. The wear of diamond particles seems to owe most to the mechanical one including microscopic fracture at the cutting edge and striation-formation on the flank surface of each particle.
