Diamond wheels dressed

22 February 2007

directly on the production machine

There is now an assured process for CNC controlled dressing of ceramic-bonded diamond wheels directly on the production machine. Previously this had to be done as a dry grinding process with “soft” SiC tools on separate machines. The new  "Diamond-Dressing System" (DDS) from Saint-Gobain Abrasives profiles V+ wheels without time-consuming tool changes. This is made possible with new Winter diamond dressing wheels which achieve significantly better roughness and notchiness – and with considerable savings in time and costs as well. The dressed diamond wheels are ready for use without any additional sharpening being required.
