The grindability of fine-ceramics is most important information in order to determine the optimum grinding conditions. This study proposes the method of grindability evaluation of fine-ceramics by removal rate in constant pressure grinding. The processing model under the constant pressure grinding was composed, and the removal rate was formulated from this processing model. As a result, the removal rate calculated from the processing model is well correspondent with the removal rate obtained by the experiment. From this result, the possibility of evaluating the grindability from the mechanical properties of fine-ceramics was found.
