Despite these drawbacks in the case of the grinding of the tough or very tough materials one obtained smaller wears by using the balls made of manganese steel. In the case of the use of balls made of austenitic manganese steel, one remarked the advantage of the smaller wears and tears with a reduced specific consumption of grinding bodies, whereas the average productiveness increased due to a constant ball loading in the mill.
