    The heat released during the grinding process is directly proportional to the size of the forces developed in the cutting process, which depend on the nature and mechanical properties of the workpiece material, the geometric parameters of the cutting tool, the properties of cutting fluids used during the machining process.
    Experimental research has confirmed the hypothesis that an increase in cutting speed leads to an increase in the amount of heat released and consequently to an increase in the temperature of the workpiece when using the same temperature control system. The paper presents the identification of heat sources in grinding process, as well as the distribution of heat to the elements which are part of the processing system.
