Direct Plated Tools | Publication Date: 5.23.18

Summary:

An abrasive article includes a first bonding region including metal overlying a substrate, abrasive particles in the first bonding region, secondary particles disposed in a second bonding region including metal overlying the first bonding region, and a third bonding region overlying the second bonding region.  The first and second bonding regions can be formed by an electroplating process, and the third bonding region can be formed by an electroless plating process.  Secondary particles can be disposed in only the second bonding region and the third bonding region, and the first bonding region can be free of secondary particles.

Abrasive Article Including Shaped Abrasive Particles | Publication Date: 3.8.17

Summary:

A shaped abrasive particle having a body including a first surface, a second surface, and a third surface extending between the first surface and the second surface, and wherein the body includes an exterior corner having a corner radius within a range of at least 0.5 microns and not greater than 15 microns. A method for forming shaped abrasive particles including creating a substrate comprising a sintered ceramic material; and cutting the substrate to form a plurality of shaped abrasive particles from the substrate.  A method of forming abrasive particles including depositing a free-standing droplet on a substrate; the droplet comprising a mixture including a precursor ceramic material; and sintering the free-standing droplet to form a shaped abrasive particle having an elliptical shape.
