The application of cutting fluids in grinding processes is of great importance to maintain a high productivity. Therefore, it is required to supply an appropriate quantity of cutting fluid to the grinding gap. For this reason the pumping performance is critical, but also the nozzle design has a significant impact. As pumps are considered as main energy consumers it is important to focus on the correlation with the nozzles. Therefore, this research approach uses 3D-printing to develop and produce individualized nozzles. Based on experimental studies the performance of these nozzles is investigated and their impact on energy efficiency is discussed.
