Advanced, high-performance grinding technology is vital to manufacturing industry today.
The demands on the grinding process are becoming ever tougher, both in economics and in dimensional and geometrical tolerances and surface quality.
This is where dressing steps in.
Dressing tools for silicon carbide and aluminium oxide wheels must fulfill the following tasks:
- 1. "True" the wheel to eliminate run-out and correct geometrical shape.
- 2. Restore the required effective roughness of the wheel.
- 3. Keep the wheel 'open' for high grinding efficiency.
The dressing process exposes a new sharp cutting layer on the wheel. The dressing tool is clamped and guided by the machine, and relative dresser / wheel movements (infeed and transverse feed) are executed by the dressing tool or the wheel. The path followed by the dressing tool determines the geometry of the grinding wheel.
The diamond's superlative hardness and wear resistance, makes it the ideal material for dressing tools.
We have the capability of manufacturing custom dressing tools to customer's specifications. Extensive emphasis is placed on "multi point" dressing tools because these dressing tools in recent years have become increasingly tool of choice.
