Experimental Study on Performance of Monolayer Brazed Diamond Wheel through Chemical-Mechanical Dressing
The dressing methods of monolayer diamond tool have recently been developed increasingly because a substantial improvement of the ground surface roughness could be achieved with the dressed monolayer diamond tools. In this paper, a new dressing method was proposed, namely chemical-mechanical dressing of the diamond grits. Dressing experiments were carried out on the monolayer brazed diamond grinding wheel. The grit-tip distances from the base of wheel substrate were measured before and after dressing. Grinding experiments were conducted on K9 optical glass after each dressing interval. The roughness parameters of the ground surfaces were measured. The outcome of this attempt appeared highly encouraging, and the dressing of monolayer brazed diamond grinding wheel is effective with the chemical-mechanical dressing.
