Truing of diamond wheels - Geometry, kinematics and removal mechanisms
Journal article, 2018

An investigation is made into traverse truing of diamond grinding wheels using various truing grit types, grit sizes and truing parameters. Geometry and kinematics of the truing contact are modeled. Specific energies are found to depend on truing-grit size but not on truing parameters, indicating little to no size effect. Removal mechanisms are analyzed via SEM examination of diamond- and truing-wheel swarf. A fundamental relationship is established relating the truing compliance number to the truing efficiency, which encompasses truing parameters and truing- and diamond-grit sizes. Recommendations are made for optimum conditions to minimize force-constrained truing time.
