Most tool room grinders will tell you that dressing your grinding wheel to expose new abrasive grain is vitally important to the longevity of the wheel and the quality of the grind. Exposing new abrasive material is done by using a single point or multi/cluster diamond dresser. Centric Inc. has single point and cluster diamond dressers! Centric stocks diamond dressers to fit Weinig Rondomat, Foley, Iida, SCM, Cantek, Northtech, and numerous other brands of grinders. Below are some helpful terms commonly used in this aspect of grinding.
Dressing – The process of exposing new abrasive grain and new sharp cutting edges.
Truing – The process of forming the working face of the grinding wheel so that it is concentric to the axis of the grinding wheel.
Diamond dressers are a diamond tipped tool used for truing and dressing grinding wheels. Diamond dressers have either a single or multiple diamonds bonded to the tip of the shank. Centric offers both threaded and smooth diamond dresser.
Centric Inc. has several options for our customers when it comes to diamond dressers. We can offer a single point diamond dresser or a cluster diamond dresser. The single point diamond dressers utilize a single diamond between .25 - .35 carat. Our cluster diamond dresser contains several smaller diamonds that gives the dresser a greater coverage of grinding area.
