The Collection of Data for the Assessment of a Grinding Wheel Dressing Treatment
Profilographs produced from grinding-wheel data which was collected by a specially developed chisel-edge stylus are compared with those obtained by a conventional pointed stylus. For a number of dressing feeds chisel-stylus profilographs are shown to exhibit clear evidence of helical grooving on the wheel surface and can be used as a visual indication of the permanence of a dressing treatment. Experiments are described in which dressing feed, dressing-tool geometry, and the number of passes of the dressing tool are varied. The relative importance of these parameters is discussed.
