Truing and Dressing Systems
Truing is the process of making a grinding wheel round and concentric with the grinding wheel spindle axis. Truing is also the process of forming a specific shape on the face of the wheel. Dressing is the process of conditioning the surface of a trued wheel to expose the grain for efficient grinding action.
A properly trued and dressed wheel grinds with a minimum of grinding power, has no burn or chatter, and produces good quality parts. The technology in the rotary diamond dressing field has improved to such an extent that tolerances in the millionths of an inch are being consistently met. Today, this method of dressing is not only the fastest but also the most accurate way to shape grinding wheels in high volume production of precision parts.
