Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to simplify the testing of coolants for grinding in the automotive industry. Design/methodology/approach ‐ A simple equipment is developed to test the coolant, by simulating the coolant-grinding wheel-workpiece interface and measuring in terms of grinding parameters. Findings ‐ It was found that the simulator could indicate the performance trends that closely match the actual grinding conditions. Research limitations/implications ‐ Since this is a general system, it has to be customised with individual settings of the machining parameters for a meaningful interpretation and for comparison between machines. Practical implications ‐ This equipment will simplify the selection of coolants for grinding and serve as a pre-qualifier before approving for trials in full-scale shopfloor conditions. Originality/value ‐ The design of the equipment is new and provides an alternate for the otherwise costly, full-scale evaluation of coolants on the shopfloor.
