Generation Process of Cutting-Edge Distribution on Grinding Wheel with Single-Point Diamond Dressing


Article Preview

The grinding should be improved to be the skill-free process executed based on the quantified criteria. In this study, the evaluation methods are applied to evaluate the dressing process to clarify how the dressing changes the cutting-edge distribution. From the results, the following facts have been clarified: There is the critical value of the depth of cut for suppressing the release of grain. The spark-out in dressing releases grains damaged by collision with dresser, and then, it also increases the cutting-edge density.
