Abstract. One of the first approaches to the development of a grinding process monitoring system based on audible sound sensors is presented in the paper. Electroplated diamond tools (abrasive D64 and D107) were used in a modified single-disc lapping machine configuration for flat grinding of ceramics (Al2O3). The main aim of the machine modification was to reduce the vertical vibration in order to decrease the tool wear and to increase the material removal rate. The sound generated by the material processing was analysed in the aspect of actual abrasive ability of the grinding tools. The abrasive properties of the tool are decreasing during machining due to the wear of diamond grains. The results from experiments, such as the material removal rates and waveforms of recorded sound are presented and discussed in the paper.
