Single point diamond dressers are made of selected diamonds mounted in a
matrix.Only one cutting edge is presented to the grinding wheel. Diamonds for single
point dressing tools are selected for their structural strength, number of points,
degrees of sharpness, and lack of detrimental flaws. The proper selection of size and
quality appropriate for a given application requires qualified judgement.
We offer different grades of diamonds for single point diamond dressers. Natural point : 1) Brutted "A" Grade 2) Brutted "B" Grade 3) Brutted "C" Grade
Considerable care should be taken in mounting the diamond dresser in position diamonds are sensitive to shock and impact. The dresser must be clamped rigidly in place to avoid vibration once dressing begins. An ample supply of coolant should be directed contact at the diamond point before dressing begins, as the sudden application of coolant to the diamond once it has heated up can cause it to shatter.
Throw-away type diamond dressers are made of small selected crystal
shape or octahedral diamonds, mounted in a matrix only one cutting
edge is presented to the grinding wheel. Diamonds for throw-away
type diamond dressers are selected for their structural strength, degree
of sharpness. The proper selection of size and quality appropriate for a
given application requires qualified and experienced judgement.
These tools replace large single points. The cluster consist of 3,5,7,9,13,
or 17 small diamonds set in a variety of patterns for dressing larger or
coarser and harder wheels. Since more than one diamond comes in
contact with the wheel, the workload is divided. Also, since smaller
diamonds are less expensive per carat than large stones, cluster tools
often effect important savings.
Cluster type diamond dressers give rapid-dressing without scoring and produce a consistent even surface on the grinding wheel. These dressers are resistant to shock and impact.
