In the continuous evolving manufacturing industry, titanium is considered as one ofthe vital materials due to its superior properties; however, grinding of titanium is quite a challenging that demands crucial attention in order to improve its applicability. Present article deals on the effects of varying coolant concentration while grinding of Ti-6AI-4 V. The mode of coolant delivery adopted is drop-by-drop using infusion tube. The grinding performance is analysed using several relevant parameters like grinding force, grinding ratio, average surface roughness, ground surface quality, chip morphology, etc. The results suggest that grinding performance improves with increasing concentration of coolant in cutting fluid.
