Design and validation of a kinematic model for the dressing of conventional wheels

Design and validation of a kinematic model for the dressing of conventional wheels

This article will describe the numerical model, the contextualisation, limitations and objectives of the dressing model as well as the experimental test and measurement methodology.

Dressing is one of the most critical parameters that determines the effectiveness of the grinding processes. This article contains a study that performs the analysis and validation of the proposal of a kinematic dressing model for the case of corundum conventional wheels. In this initial analysis, the precision of the model will be evaluated by predicting the abrasive surface area after the dressing operation for the case of a single-pointed diamond, and the deviations will be observed between simulations and experimental results.

The results of the study show the direction of future research work by providing useful information for optimising this model and extending the analysis to different types of dressing tools.

To be capable of accurately predicting the topography of a particular wheel in accordance with the dressing parameters will give the user much information. This will allow the user to estimate the behaviour of the grinding operation on viewing the effects generated by the dressing process and help them to select the best wheel or dresser, and to reduce considerably the set-up times for manufacture and the number of tests during the workpiece validation phase.
