The process

The tool consists of a circular grinding plate [1], often with embedded diamond particles. On the plate, one or more free-flowing Conditioning Rings [2], wherein the parts to be processed is placed. A weight [3] presses the parts against the grinding plate while fixing their position. Roller forks [4] keeps the ring positions but let them rotate due to the force from the rotation grinding plate. In the process, a diamond paste slurry [5] is added to the grinding plate to assist the fixed abrasive.
