Study on Dry Electrical Discharge Assisted Profile Truing and Dressing of Diamond Wheel
Both diamond wheel and CBN wheel belong to super-abrasive wheels. Diamond wheels have superior grinding performance. The metal-bonded diamond wheel can grind hard brittle material component with a complicated shape precisely and efficiently. Because dielectric liquid is forbidden on numerical control optical profile grinder, the information on profile truing and dressing diamond wheel mounted on numerical control optical profile grinder is not readily available. In this paper, a novel truing and dressing method, namely dry electrical discharge (dry-ECD) assisted truing and dressing, is proposed. The experiments of dry-ECD assisted profile truing and dressing of diamond wheel are done by the authors. The experimental results show that both geometrical accuracy and surface topography of diamond wheel have attained technical requirement under appropriate truing and dressing conditions. There is not much difference in grinding abilities of new diamond wheel and dry-ECD assisted truing and dressing diamond wheel.
