Dressing of Grinding Tools for Maximum Efficiency with Tyrolit
Grinding is an unsteady process due to changes in the bond, abrasive grain and grinding wheel topography, as well as wear on the grinding wheel. These changes result in effects on grinding forces, workpiece surface and geometric accuracy. To ensure that the grinding wheel always delivers optimum grinding results, a periodic conditioning cycle must be maintained. This cycle restores the grinding ability of the wheel. By properly conditioning a grinding wheel, the subsequent grinding process can be optimized in terms of performance, cost efficiency and surface finish.
Extensive assortment for dressing and sharpening grinding wheels
The Tyrolit portfolio offers an extensive selection of dressing tools that support a wide variety of conditioning methods. From wheels for the rotating dressing of diamond and CBN tools, to upright diamond dressers for conditioning corundum and silicon carbide wheels, to dressing stones and pipes for hand-held dressing, all applications and materials are covered. Hand-held dressing sets for large-dimension bench grinding wheels in resinoid bond, which are preferably used in the foundry industry, can also support your processes.
When dressing grinding wheels, various requirements must be taken into account: to achieve the best possible results, a sufficient coolant supply must be ensured during the process. In addition, factors such as active width and overlap rate of the dressing tools must be perfectly matched. Our application engineers are available to help you design an individual solution that is perfectly fitted to your requirements.
Conclusion: Dressing is one of the most important processes for keeping the profitability and surface finish at a consistently high level. Tyrolit offers a coordinated product portfolio for every step of the process and the necessary know-how to fully equip you. This guarantees optimum conditioning of the grinding tools and thus supports the highest possible process quality.
